Writing in the Breaks: Black Rhetorics and Rupture

updated: 
Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 3:56pm
SAMLA--November 15-17 Atlanta, GA--DEADLINE EXTENDED
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

In theorizing the break in black radical aesthetics, Fred Moten suggests, "Words don't go there [in Cecil Taylor's Chinampas]. Is it only music, only sound that goes there? Perhaps these notes and phrases will have mapped the terrain and traversed (at least some of) the space between here and there" (In the Break, 42). Moten claims that black radical aesthetics enact a generative rupture, break, or cut that create space for black aesthetic practices. This panel will consider any theorization of rupture or the break in black expressive practices with a special consideration of papers that address the break between black musical and literary practices.

Avant-Garde Humor and Political Aesthetics

updated: 
Wednesday, April 17, 2019 - 2:37pm
PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

This panel explores the interconnection of avant-garde humor with forms of political action that defied conventional art and lifestyles. The significance of the comical aspect centers on a greater understanding of experimental practices as cases that unsettle the establishment. Literally meaning “advance guard” in French, the term holds a military sense that applies to artists and works characterized by their combative nature and their tendency to question the acceptability of norms and traditional aesthetic genres. Avant-garde artists made use of humor as a political weapon that destabilized the status quo by challenging bourgeois values and promoting radical reforms on a sociocultural level.

deadline for submissions:

Theme: The Art of Writing/The Writing of Art

The 2019 SUNY Conference on Writing will take place at Purchase College from November 8-9.

Based on the principle that arts and scholarship are indispensable to each other and to society, Purchase College, SUNY, was envisioned from its founding as a campus where conservatory training in the visual and performing arts would reside alongside programs in the liberal arts and sciences. In this spirit, and in honor of Purchase College’s unusually artistic student body, we invite attendees and presenters to consider the relationship between writing and art.

Heroes, Villains, and Victims: Hagiography, Demonization, and Narrative's Role in Assessing Who Matters

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2019

Literature and history are rife with figures who are difficult to assess. For example, the television show Dexter was premised on the question of whether or not a murderer who only kills other murderers is a villain or a dark hero. Likewise, both historians and authors have attempted to determine whether John Brown was a hero, a terrorist, a victim, or a madman? Similarly, depending on the perspective from which he is analyzed, Che Guevara was a heroic revolutionary, a violent executioner, or, perhaps, a bit of both? Was Bertha Mason the madwoman in the attic as Charlotte Bronte would have us believe or a victim of the forces of both colonialization and patriarchy as Jean Rhys describes?
