Modern architecture emphasizes function over form, incorporating modern materials and a rebellion against traditional styles.

In particular, papers exploring political spectacles of architecture (i.e., the aesthetics of the architectural revival in Mussolini's Italy; World Fair exhibitions of architectural design; government building projects designed to reinvent cultural identity) are welcome, as well as papers emphasizing elements of modern architecture across cultures and traditional schools. Please send 500-word abstracts to Heather Lusty at heather.lusty@unlv.edu by April 1, 2011.

Libidinal Lives: Economies of Desire in the Long Nineteenth Century

In his controversial work Libidinal Economy (1974) Jean-Franҫois Lyotard famously remarked 'every political economy is libidinal'. With this radical pronouncement, Lyotard identified all hegemonic structures as susceptible to the affective ebb and flow of desire. Forming the cornerstone of the new 'libidinal materialism', Libidinal Economy, alongside Deleuze and Guattari's Anti-Oedipus (1972), saw the desiring body as inextricably bound up with economic, political and fiscal operations. In the decades that followed, a wealth of theoretical work drew on this challenging juxtaposition of the libidinal and the economic.
