This seminar convenes scholars working at the intersection of Black diaspora studies and Slavic studies broadly construed—including the Russian Empire and former Soviet Union, Central and Southeast Europe, and Central Asia. Earlier scholarship in Afro-Russian and/or Afro-Eurasian studies has emphasized crucial connections between these two fields, including: the parallel histories of bondage and emancipation in the United States and Russian Empire; the representation of “folk” culture in Russian and African American literatures; Black artists’ and writers’ sojourns in the Soviet Union; and the influence of Russian thought and literature on African diasporic writers in the twentieth century.

ACLA 2019: Revisions of Fascism: History, Aesthetics, and Affect

updated: 
Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - 11:08am
ACLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018

“The logical outcome of fascism is an aestheticizing of political life,” writes Walter Benjamin in "The Work of Art in the Age of Its Technological Reproducibility," thus placing aesthetics at the center of the critical discourse on fascism. Employed in work as disparate as Klaus Theweleit’s Male Fantasies (1977/1987) and Erin Carlston’s Thinking Fascism (1995), Alice Kaplan’s Reproductions of Banality (1986) and Mark Christian Thompson’s Black Fascisms (2007), Benjamin’s concept has situated fascism as a historical and phenomenological phenomenon. Reproduced incessantly, this line of Benjamin’s refuses to resolve into a single tradition of thought, a crystallized image.
