Radical Aesthetics and the Rehearsal of Black Liberation at MLA 2022
Proposed panel for the meeting of the Modern Language Association 2022. MLA will convene in Washington, DC, 6–9 January 2022
We invite 250-word abstracts for papers about the role of creative expression in creating and maintaining Black life-worlds. How do experimental, transgressive, and radical aesthetics do more than just query historically entrenched racial discourse? How might they also activate, sustain, and rehearse Black liberation?
Send 250-word abstracts to John Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 March 2021.
