Perseverance builds character.

How does perseverance come about? By rising through a struggle, whether it is a provoked or unprovoked event that questions one’s ability to endure and survive a hardship. It is through one’s suffering and survival of such hardships in life -whether physical or mental - that one is able to build upon their character, thus leading to hope.

We are able to see these modes of struggle and perseverance in various facets from ethnicity, gender, and politics, to name a few, and we would like to hear, learn, and share them in our publication.

Marginalized Style: Studying Fashion from Below to Promote Liberation

 

In Beyonce Knowles-Carter’s 2016 single “Formation,” the artist highlights her southern, black heritage to the black diasporic history that went into the making of her racial and ethnic background. As Beyonce proudly announces her racial identity, in the same stanza, she articulates that identity through the lens of fashion. She feels “so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin')/ I'm so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces.” The references to the French designer Givenchy and her husband’s jewelry collection demonstrates how Beyonce frames her understanding of her black heritage through her attire.

The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Toni Morrison and Teju Cole, Bei Dao and Rita Dove, Tony Kushner and Lynn Nottage, Joan Didion and Ta-Nehisi Coates without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

updated:

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 20, 2018

Seeking two additional papers for a two panel series at ANZSANA 2019 (Austin, Texas, February 6-8) relating the history and culture of Australia and New Zealand to settler colonialism as a transnational phenomenon. We are particularly interested in papers that:

 

• Engage in comparative work that relates the history and culture of Australia and/or New Zealand to that of the US

• Consider how Australia as a case study has shaped contemporary transnational understandings of settler colonialism as a structure of power. 

• Consider the relationship between critiques of settler colonialism and critiques of the patriarchy, especially vis-a-vis contemporary Indigenous feminist approaches.

Survivor Stories: Challenging Our Rape Culture Together

 

In the last few months survivors’ efforts have been mobilized by efforts around the Me Too Movement, Time’s Up efforts, and, most recently, the Brett Kavanaugh appointment to the Supreme Court. Right now survivors’ voices are being heard at protest rallies, speak outs, and academic conferences across the country.
