Is progress always … progressive? Or can progression and regression occupy the same space? According to anthropologist Brian Larkin (2008), “progress can thus be seen as a mode of social ordering, of governmentality in Foucault’s sense that power works not by repression but by incorporation and internalizing modes of rule.” In other words, the tools of innovation often reimagine dominant ideologies with both positive and negative effects.

It might then be assumed that the problem would go away if you would just stop talking about it or if you went away.

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.
