In a 2015 multimedia manifesto titled “Towards Arabfuturism/s” the Jordanian artist Sulaïman Majali writes that “Arabfuturism/s, like most creative provocations, is born of counter-culture” in which “notions of belonging are constantly challenged by the strangers, the marginalised, the outsiders: workers, rebels, immigrants, artists who see from the margins– looking in – that there is no homogenous culture or identity.” For Majali, like many contemporary artists interrogating the possibilities and limits of futurity amidst ecological, territorial, existential, and ideological states of crisis, -futurism “signifies a defiant cultural break, a projection forward into what is, beyond ongoing eurocentric, hegemonic narrativ

The first part of Mary Wroth’s unfinished romance, The Countesse of Mountgomeries Urania (1621), infamously concludes with a conjunction; Wroth writes, “all things are prepared for the journey, all now merry, contented, nothing amisse; greife forsaken, sadnes cast off, Pamphilia is the Queene of all content, Amphilanthus ioying worthily in her; And[.]” Mary Wroth’s unresolved “And” opens to infinite possible endings for Pamphilia, including negative ones, especially given the other ambiguities of Wroth’s romance, and the anxieties frequently expressed by Pamphilia herself.

CONCEPT NOTE

 

 

“Children may not understand all that's happening below the surface of a story. It doesn't matter. Because even though they may not be able to define or verbalize it, they sense there's something more than meets the eye; on an almost subliminal level, they're aware of a richness of texture, or meaning and emotion -- a richness that, in a great book, is inexhaustible. And the child may well come back to it again and again, perhaps long after he's stopped being a child.”

- Lloyd Alexander.

Saturday, September 30, 2023

As director Alain Kassanda points out, "the restitution of films should start with access to film archives from the colonial era. Furthermore, Africans do not have access to the pioneering works of cinema produced by the continent's filmmakers: the holding of distribution rights outside of African countries, in Europe and the United States, is one of the reasons for this situation. The vast majority of African film collections, consisting of ethnographic, classic and contemporary films, are held in France and the United States.

Overcoming Instrumental and Post-humanistic Education - NEMLA panel & edited volume

Saturday, September 30, 2023

Instrumental curricula focus on direct, concrete, and explicit causal and quantifiable relationships between programs of study and reductive interpretations of the demands of society and the labor market. Within this broadly appealing system, STEM education and professional programs effortlessly justify their value as essential in any formal educational environment. Although societies and labor markets consistently assert the critical importance of and urgent need for people equipped with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions derived from humanistic education, instrumental systems frequently relegate the humanities to a secondary position of positive complementarity, worthy of investment solely when time and budget constraints permit.
