Applications for Clark Art Institute Fellowships due October 15

The Clark Art Institute’s Research and Academic Program (RAP) awards funded residential fellowships to established and promising scholars with the aim of fostering a critical commitment to inquiry in the theory, history, and interpretation of art and visual culture. In addition to Clark fellowships, RAP offers a number of special fellowships for specific research interests that are intended to nurture a variety of disciplinary approaches and support new voices in art history. These include:

Caribbean Art and Its Diasporas Fellowship

CFP for NeMLA 2021 (11-14 March - Philadelphia) - "Subverting Traditions in the Maghreb Through Literature and the Cinema"

This session proposes to discuss the multi-layered region of the postcolonial Francophone Maghreb, composed of Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco, through the study of literary texts and films by contemporary Maghrebi writers and filmmakers.

Recommended by Films for the Feminist Classroom - AGAINST THE GRAIN

"Resisting a chronological representation of testosterone’s effect on the body, this film allows students to think through the disjunctures between medical and spiritual/affective approaches to transition. This film sets up a number of questions related to the medicalization of trans experience, the relationships between women and transmen in political organizing, and the differing perspectives on trans embodiment across different cultures/epistemes/cosmologies."

C. Riley Snorton, Films for the Feminist Classroom


AUDRE LORDE - THE BERLIN YEARS 1984 TO 1992 Recommended by Films for the Feminist Classroom

"The film works through the following question: what can we learn from our connected differences? It thus implores spectators to complicate difference and challenge the ways in which neoliberal multiculturalism has flattened, and often sought to tame, Lorde’s radical teachings."

Naimah Petigny, Films for the Feminist Classroom
