This proposed international seminar aims to respond to the current state of world affairs: notably, the inherent ontological vulnerability of life and the economic, socially-conditioned precariousness of individuals, societies and populations, which have been heightened since the 2008 financial crisis. Caused by an economic shift in the labour market and global neoliberal capitalism, precarity has been increasing due to world-wide inequality as “more extensive and less visible patterns of global dispossession” and “relatively unstable and dispersed conditions of deprivation and insecurity” gain ground (During 2015).

Networks of Experience: Art and (Dis)Embodiment

Contemporary Art, Design and New Media Art Histories Graduate Student Conference Conference Date: March 15 - 16, 2019
Location: OCAD University, 100 McCaul Street, Toronto, Canada

Any encounter between an audience and a work of art is experiential. Beyond this universal dimension, much contemporary art asks more of its viewers than just viewing. These works engage multiple modes of observation, sensation, participation, reflection, and (dis)embodiment that have the power to affect and engage bodies in new and adaptive ways.

Marginalized Style: Studying Fashion from Below to Promote Liberation

 

In Beyonce Knowles-Carter’s 2016 single “Formation,” the artist highlights her southern, black heritage to the black diasporic history that went into the making of her racial and ethnic background. As Beyonce proudly announces her racial identity, in the same stanza, she articulates that identity through the lens of fashion. She feels “so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin')/ I'm so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces.” The references to the French designer Givenchy and her husband’s jewelry collection demonstrates how Beyonce frames her understanding of her black heritage through her attire.

Over_Seas: Melville, Whitman, and All the Intrepid Sailors

July 3-5, 2019

School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon

 

Herman Melville (1819-1891), sailor and writer, plowed the ocean as a tablet to be read, gazing at the white page where unfathomable characters surface to the eyes of the puzzled reader. “Captain” Walt Whitman (1819-1892), on the other hand, writing “in cabin’d ships at sea,” broke open and passed the divide between in- and out-of-doors, as he urged his book to “speed on.” Both were born 200 years ago.
