UPDATE: Culture under neoliberalism / neoliberal culture (journal articles due 1/31/14)

Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 7:36pm
Sites: A Journal of Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies

Over the past thirty years, it has increasingly become understood in cultural theory that neoliberalism -- the extension of free market principles and corporate structures into the wider social and cultural spheres -- has become a shaping paradigm of our daily lives. Neoliberal tenets include the model of persons as rational economic actors advancing their own interests under the banner of self-determination and choice; the elevation of enterprise along with prudent risk management; the "freeing" of capital from state control into corporate ownership; and the shifting of social responsibility from state agencies to kinship-based forms of care.

Proposing Panel on Carlene Hatcher Polite

Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 12:51pm
Proposing Panel to American Literature Association (May 22nd-25th)

Carlene Hatcher Polite published two sui-generis novels—The Flagellants (1966) and Sister X and the Victims of Foul Play (1975)—that were widely reviewed as examples of cutting-edge African American fiction and attracted positive notice from people with tastes as different as Irving Howe, Roger Ebert, and Nikki Giovanni. Yet almost 50 years after The Flagellants, the MLA bibliography lists only 9 items that have addressed her work, and none since her death in 2009: none, indeed, in the 2000s.

American Imperialism and Identity: National and International Understandings of the United States

Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 10:50am
Durham University (UK)

Throughout the twentieth century the United States has risen to the role of World Power, with its political, cultural, social and economic influence stretching far beyond its own borders. Can the United States' actions abroad or even within its own borders be considered imperialistic? To what extent has the United States throughout its history and today been preoccupied with control and what role does the creation of identity play within this? Do the recent NSA leaks and the involvement of the United States in the Middle East come under the umbrella of a past of American imperialism or how else can these be understood? How has the role the United States plays within the world influenced identities and cultures within the United States?
