Literati 2014: Speaking Bodies
University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI
Textual bodies have long served as a battleground for conceiving of the human body. Through the lens of literature, people have fathomed the body's limits, its relationship to identity, its ability to liberate or enchain. Literati 2014's theme, "Speaking Bodies," asks, What does it mean to be embodied, and what are the consequences of conceiving of human or textual bodies as "legible"? Who or what gets to establish the limits of these bodies? How are they able to transform or be transformed?

This special issue for Black Camera, titled "Fugitivity and the Filmic Imagination," ponders whether American mainstream and/or independent cinema—primarily with regard to the current string of films being released that take up chattel slavery—engages or disavows black fugitivity as the imaginative condition for film; a reassessment of the frameworks that are most generative for exploring black fugitivity's complexities; and a rethinking of how online social media now informs the discourses that shape the filmic imagination.
