CFP: Textual Empires & Discursive Dissent: Reimagining Aesthetic Traditions in Race and Ethnicity Studies

updated: 
Monday, October 3, 2011 - 1:49pm
American Studies Association 2012 Annual Conference--San Juan, Puerto Rico

The horrors of empire have left an indelible mark on the geopolitical space of the circum-Atlantic world and hemispheric America. And the aesthetic expressions of this imperial site bear the traces of a past devastated by despotic and hegemonic rule. Deeply imbricated in the mutually-constitutive battles of conquest and resistance, the aesthetic traditions of this textual terrain reflect an ongoing struggle between Anglo "colonizers" and "others." Often, aesthetic expressions of the Other participate within otherwise legitimated and established forms—articulated with a difference.

Jennifer Hardwick & Ian Maness / Queen's University Department of English

Come Together: Digital Collaboration in the Academy and Beyond seeks to explore the relationship between digital technology and academic, activist and artistic collaborations. Our focus is on how these collaborations come into being, what challenges they present, and how they are reshaping both the academy and the world at large. While we welcome all papers on the topic of digital collaboration, we are especially interested in those that examine the ways in which technology enables work across disciplinary, geographic, cultural and/or other boundaries, those that identify and/or propose solutions to the barriers that still need to be overcome, and those that offer frameworks for innovative forms of digital collaboration.
