Special Volume of Frontiers, A Women Studies Journal 41.3 (Feb. 2021): “Staging Feminist Futures”

Special Volume Editor: Kimberly Jew, University of Utah 

Space, energy, temporal fluidity, moving bodies, present voices and affect, witnesses, narrative. The theatrical stage offers a moving, three-dimensional world in which to explore imagined embodiments and emotions, and to momentarily restructure the boundaries of identity, reality and nation. As Jill Dolan argues in her seminal book, Utopian Performance, live performance offers a special power to staged visions of utopian futures through the visceral, action-ready sentiment generated among audience members.

This call for papers is a call to re/action.

Speaking on the evolution and significance of black aesthetics throughout film, music, and history, Arthur Jafa recognizes an explicitly reactive dimension in black cultural production, one predicated on the treatment or transformation of given materials. He demonstrates that black creativity and artistic expression in the United States has been elementally shaped by—and in reaction to—the parameters and circumstances of chattel slavery and its violent legacies.
