The Urban Catwalk: Fashion and Street Culture (April 23 2011)

Thursday, July 22, 2010 - 4:00pm
madison moore /Yale University

What is street style, and what is the relationship between style, "the street," and popular culture? How have the Internet, digital cameras and other technologies impacted how we understand the way we dress? In what ways does street style engage with broader issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality?

The Urban Catwalk: Fashion and Street Culture, a one-day symposium at Yale University, aims to investigate and openly discuss the relationships between street style and identity. We are interested in papers that approach street style from a contemporary lens, but also encourage papers with more of an historical perspective.

Cultural Studies Association (3/24,25,26/11): Critical, and Cultural, Approaches to Music

Sheila Liming

Though often considered most at home in literature and language arts, cultural studies has, from time to time, lent its critical eye toward music. Major figures associated with the history and methods of cultural studies, including G.W.F. Hegel, Theodor Adorno, and Edward Said, left their more familiar realms of study to consider and write critically about music. This panel aspires to follow that historical trend and present a variety of presentations which highlight theoretical approaches to music and music criticism consistent with the methods of cultural studies.

This panel calls for papers on maritime literature that represents the experience of Black and Asian sailors and their contribution to nineteenth-century Atlantic maritime culture. Known variously as "Black Jacks," "Prize Negroes," "Seedy Boys" and "Kru Men," a growing number of blacks –- slaves liberated from slave ships, indentured servants and freed men –- joined the ranks of the British naval and merchant marine service as sailors, stokers, cabin boys, translators and navigators. Historical census records estimate that, by the late-nineteenth century, a third of Britain's maritime force was Black or Asian.

11th Annual South Asian Literary Association Conference: Transnational Realisms and Post Realisms in South Asian Literature and Culture

This conference examines ways in which South Asian realist and postrealist writers unsettle and rework realist codes. South Asian cultural and narrative forms are erased or occluded in the realism/anti-realism debate. The normative account in literary histories posits realism as the precursor to modernism. South Asian literary realisms diverge from, and are discontinuous with, the long history of debate about Platonic and neo-Platonic art as copying a copy of the real.

"Perfect Harmony" and "melting strains". Music in Early Modern Culture between Sensibility and Abstraction; 1.-3.Dec.2011

Thursday, July 22, 2010 - 6:54am
Humboldt-University Berlin, Germany; SFB 644 Transformations of Antiquity

In Early Modern culture, philosophers, musicians, theologians, and poets grappled with the ambivalent nature of music. Music was perceived as a phenomenon occupying an ambiguous position between mathematical abstraction and sensual experience. In the Pythagorean-Platonic tradition, music was understood as euphonic mathematics replicating the perfection and beauty of a transcendent cosmic order. At the same time, the emotive and physiological effects of actual musical experience proved it to be a sensuous phenomenon of insistent immediacy and affective power.
