Both “culture” and “people” are largely undefined and inherently diverse forms, susceptible to malleability and appropriation to suit different agendas. Considering popular culture as a field of struggle leads us to a distinction between popular forms of control as well as participation. Popular culture therefore remains tied to questions of representation, enactment, regulation and control. Reading the form requires the deployment of modes such as symbols and codes (semiotics), apparatus of production (political economy approach), audience and consumer response as well as through studies of the social life of cultural forms and their political frames.

Friday, April 1, 2022

In the inaugural issue of The Global South, Arif Dirlik notes the fundamental instability of the journal’s core concept: “like all geographical designations of ideological and political spaces and projects,” the geography of the Global South “is much more complicated than the term suggests, and subject to change over time.” “[T]he ‘South’ of the contemporary world,” Dirlik reminds us, “may be significantly different in its composition and territorial spread than the South” of past historical moments.

Signs was founded in 1975 as part of an emergent tradition of feminist scholarship and has been publishing continuously ever since, establishing itself as a preeminent journal in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. At the time of the journal’s conception, Signs’s founding editorial staff sought not only to raise consciousness and develop theories of women’s oppression but also to challenge the taken-for-granted and to strive for theoretical nuance and interdisciplinarity. To honor half a century of publication, our fiftieth anniversary issue aims to generate new questions and critical discussion about “Big Feminism” – about the role and power of feminist theory – today and into the future.

***ONE WEEK TO GO UNTIL ABSTRACT DEADLINE***

‘Borders. Everything begins with them, and all paths lead back to them. They are no longer merely a line of demarcation separating distinct sovereign entities. Increasingly, they are the name used to describe the organized violence that underpins both contemporary capitalism and our world order in general – the women, the men, and the unwanted children condemned to abandonment […] In fact, everything leads back to borders – these dead spaces of non-connection which deny the very idea of a shared humanity, of a planet, the only one we have, that we share together, and to which we are linked by the ephemerality of our common condition.’ - Achille Mbembe, Necropolitics, p. 99

Modernity is a cracked looking-glass, a double-edged sword. Michel Foucault describes modernity as a period acutely aware of itself as modern, determinedly engaged in reflecting on what it means to be of the moment, and self-consciously focused on presenting itself as new. But as Kirby Brown (Cherokee Nation) reminds us, formulations of the modern are equally formulations of the non-modern, since there is ‘no civilization without the savage, no modernity without the primitive, no modernism without tradition (or convention), no modern subject without its cultural, racial, temporal, geographic, and historical Other.
