Beyond the Culture: Black Popular Culture and Social Justice is the first popular culture and social justice conference to be held at Georgia State University. The conference will be held in Atlanta on February 6 and 7, 2020. The purpose of this conference is to critically examine the use of popular culture in social justice. Specifically, this conference will examine the ways in which artists, scholars and activists have used popular culture to pursue social justice. Various forms of popular culture are used in the fight for social justice across the many realities of the human condition. This includes music, comic books, literature, film, television programs and social media branding.

The intensifying intimacy between humans and technology generates “de-naturalized” relations of body, cognition and time. This bodily experience of alienation is not solely technological, but also social. While we can try to escape denaturalization and alienation, we can also consider them as autonomous processes of production and reproduction.

Today, predictive processing determines how control is produced and reproduced technically, whether in drone warfare, high-speed trading, computerized borders, or facial recognition technologies. As attention-management, statistical parameters and machine learning emerge as nonlinear instruments, biology is no longer describable under the strict terms of biopower.

The first Earth Day, celebrated in the United States on April 22, 1970 by   millions of people and now mobilizing citizens and communities worldwide, represented the first massive expression of public concern with the ecological sustainability of our planet, launching the modern global environmentalist movement. As the world signals its 50th anniversary in 2020, the Symposium (Re)thinking Earth: From Representations of Nature to Climate Change Fiction, aims to bring together an intersection of plural perspectives and representations of the tropes of threatened nature and climate crisis, spread over time, place, formats and aesthetic models, under the collaborative interdisciplinary model of the environmental humanities.
