Radical Kinship - Tufts University (Deadline: May 7)

Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

RADICAL KINSHIP

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign? When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and fatherhood?

Can we undomesticate kinship?

Abstract/shuns

What about those ideas you entertain but never fully develop? Those notions which are reviled and dismissed by peer gatekeepers? Follies so whimsical they unsettle even you?

We're looking for those submissions, the ones shunned by polite society and keepers of the status quo.

Let us be up front: Abstractshuns endeavors to become an ersatz academic journal, middlebrow at best. If Grindr/Tinder (depending on the orientation of the idea) spent a really naughty weekend with Notes and Queries, this would be the spawn, with Courtney Love and Jack Halberstam as godparents.

CFP for edited anthology / Requiem for a Nation: religion, politics and visual cultures in post-war Italy, 1945-1975

Requiem for a Nation: religion, politics and visual cultures in post-war Italy (1945-1975)

The main objective of this edited collection is to examine the ways in which religion, culture and politics converge in configuring the contradictions of a post-war Italy's cultural history.

Starting from the assumption that to conduct a critical reflection on Italian post-war visual culture one must investigate the inevitable impact of Catholic religion on everyday life and its social, political and cultural dimensions, I choose the vantage point of cinema and visual culture to propose a critique and exploration of religion's influence on the Italian cultural and political landscape.
