Marx and The Arts
According to Marx, man's aesthetic sense is socially acquired, rather than innate. As cultural producers, artists must labor in the system for the benefit of the market as well as be committed to the working-class cause. In keeping with the theme of SAMLA87, this panel will seek to explore the ways that social constructs can influence all mediums of art. Papers dealing with any aspect of Marxism will be considered as well. Please send abstracts, A/V requirements, and a brief bio to Emma Baughman, Georgia State University, at firstname.lastname@example.org Deadline is 10 June 2015.
