The term ‘modernity’ signifies a brand new age, distinguishing human experiences and values as different from the past. From the mid-nineteenth century, ‘modern life’ began to denote transformations in all aspects, such as technology, economics, industry and urbanisation. In the cultural field, modernity is grounded in critical methods for creating new values to promote the progress of humanity.

We are seeking papers that examine the author’s relationship to American evangelicalism.

How does Robinson’s body of work lead us to think critically about the evangelical tradition in the United States?

Artists and writers have long been deconstructing dominant notions of the American West. In 1957, jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins released Way Out West, a record that drew inspiration from California landscapes, TV Westerns, and overlooked Black cowboys. The album cover depicts Rollins outfitted as a gunfighter in desert surrounds, complete with cacti and a sun-bleached cattle skull. Where you might expect to find a big iron on his hip, he cradles his tenor sax. Today, artists like Orville Peck continue to revise, rewrite, and expand the boundaries of what we might consider the story of the West both in sound, style, and location—the South African-born crooner, now based out of Canada, has gained major success on the U.S.

Harmony and Chaos: The Dialectics of Order and Disorder

In the 32 years of this conference, there has perhaps never been a more urgent time to address the fundamental issues of postcolonial studies: justice, injustice, the imposition of power, and the mechanisms of control.
