SAMLA 90, November 2nd-4th_Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 4, 2018

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.

“If you are not a myth whose reality are you? If you are not a reality whose myth are you?” –Sun Ra, Prophetika, Book One

 

Since the publication of Mark Dery’s now-seminal article on Afrofuturism, “Black to the Future” (1993), several critical studies have expanded the concept of black speculative fiction and claimed it as a full-fledged genre of its own. Indeed, the mainstream releases of a graphic novel adaptation of Octavia Butler’s Kindred, Marvel’s Black Panther and Ava Duvernay’s A Wrinkle in Time point to the existence of what we might now might call an “Afrofuturist canon.”
