Art and Activism: The Reshaping of Collective Consciousness and Social Justice

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

In his 1962 essay, “The Creative Process,” James Baldwin writes, “A society must assume that it is stable, but the artist must know, and he must let us know, that there is nothing stable under heaven. . .The artist cannot and must not take anything for granted, but must drive to the heart of every answer and expose the question the answer hides.” The link between artist and activist illustrates the import of black public voices that challenge institutions of white supremacy, gender oppression, and systemic dehumanization. Historically, artists have critiqued, documented, and contextualized racial violence to ensure that the past is not forgotten and to reshape the nation’s consciousness.

“The complex relation between the private, the individual and loneliness is unique and necessary to Adorno’s work, despite the rich annoyance of his particular mode of provocation.” (Fred Moten, “The Phonographic mise-en-scene” 2004)

As Anis Bawarshi and Mary Jo Reiff argue in Genre: An Introduction to History, Theory, Research, and Pedagogy, genres are not mere “text types,” buckets that writers fill with familiar conventions, but dynamic “social actions” that exist in activity systems (3, 78). And as suggested by contemporary texts across modes and media, for instance Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home (which blends features of comics, autobiography, comedy, and tragedy) or Ana Lily Amirpour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (which merges conventions of horror movies and westerns), contemporary authors and artists appear to be increasingly invested in the work of challenging genre conventions and meshing genres.

Following the pandemic, the ways in which mobile bodies are being administered and governed are in sync with advanced techniques of demographic control, which manifests into increasing digital surveillance on mobilities. Conversely, the neo-liberal economic order reifies speed and mobility, while ‘deterritorialization’ continues to constitute an important paradigm for the ‘flows and networks’ in a globalized world.

The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict.

Through the centuries, humans have often shaped their social life by fictional moments and by taking part in fictional events: carnivals, representations, role plays, society plays, structured and semi-structured collective and singular moments where strictly coded contexts organize specific worlds and cultural dimensions. Play, in its wide acception and in its nature of artificial and coded mechanism, reflects historically the symbolic work by which human societies have elaborated, explained and organized the world.
