August Wilson’s plays are powerful in their ability to center marginalized histories through performance and language. With the recent release of Denzel Washington’s award-winning film production of Fences (2016), and the award-winning Broadway production of Jitney (2016-2017), there has been renewed focus and interest in not only Wilson’s work, but also the Hill District, where Wilson lived and where all but one of his plays are set.

The Cold War Then and Now: Theories and Legacies

updated: 
Friday, March 22, 2019 - 8:03am
Goldsmiths, University of London
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 31, 2019

In his seminal study No Accident, Comrade (2011),Steven Belletto draws a distinction between fictions which are about the Cold War and fictions that are of the Cold War. What is meant by the former is clear enough: these are fictions which are written or set during the Cold War period and which engage thematically with it. The latter, however, is a more fluid category whose implications can be theorized further. Papers in this stream will seek to do precisely this – namely, to think through what this ‘of’ might signal in relation to literature, film, art, politics, news reporting, or society more broadly. What kind of preoccupations, narratives, theories, or ideologies might be described as being of the Cold War?
