Unveiling Hidden Discourses: 1968 Fifty Years Later
An interdisciplinary conference at the University of Warwick through the Humanities Research Centre
Keynote speakers: Professor Anne Etienne (UCC) and Professor Maud Anne Bracke (University of Glasgow)
Saturday, 19th May 2018
2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of 1968, when social unrest and desire to change the status quo struck the world. Our interdisciplinary conference, titled “Unveiling Hidden Discourses: 1968 Fifty Years Later,” looks at this year and evaluates its lasting consequences, in both negative and positive senses.
The Projector is developing a special issue on film and media productions created by and for individuals and constituencies interested in something other than standard Hollywood fare. The issue is for research that illuminates the cultural, historical, aesthetic, or material dimensions of productions that contribute to the remarkable but far less visible traditions of independent, international, or DIY film and media – traditions that give voice to people consistently left out of Hollywood’s long history of insular, hegemonic, and formulaic representations.
The figure of the human that emerges from Renaissance and Enlightenment discourses is an unmistakably imperialist entity, excluding all that it perceives as a negation of itself. This ostensibly fixed category of the human informs, if not dictates, the ways in which those who are positioned outside of “the human” experience what we call “the self.” This is to suggest that those who wish to be, and behave as, human must, as the philosopher Sylvia Wynter argues, “circumcise themselves from themselves in order to become fully human.”

UNC Asheville Queer Studies Conference 2018
April 5-7, 2018, Asheville, NC
Prisons, Borders, and Pipelines:
Toward a Queer Abolitionist Movement
Taking the conference theme of “Graphical Modernism” in a slightly different direction intimated in the title, this panel will analyze graphical representation of modernism made possible by Digital Humanities methods. One definition for “graphical” is “of or pertaining to a graph,” to data plotted and coordinates mapped. This panel will feature quantitative analyses of modernist culture in an effort to conceptualize what Raymond Williams might call a “sociology of culture,” the wide-ranging social practices that make culture possible but which are often obscured by the objects themselves.
