CFP: Sharing the Spectacle of Surveillance- "Late Breaking" Panel at AAA in San Jose, CA.

Type: 
Conference
Date: 
August 31, 2018
Location: 
Ohio, United States
Subject Fields: 
Anthropology, Popular Culture Studies, Race Studies, Sexuality Studies, Women's & Gender History / Studies

I am looking to form a panel at the American Anthropological Association Annual Conference in San Jose, CA in November, as a Late Breaking Session. The panel will look at the ways in which overt surveillence (such as recording video with a cell phone and live streaming or hosting asynchronous video) engages in disciplinary power through spectacle. Examples include the filming police brutality, racial profiling, sexual violence, microaggressions, and xenophobic harassment. 

The panel can take a variety of forms as we collaborate and create a cohesive panel together.

"Rethinking Renaissance and Early Modern Musical Instruments" - Renaissance Society of America Annual Meeting Toronto, 17-19 March 2019

Type: 
Call for Papers
Date: 
March 17, 2019
Location: 
Canada
Subject Fields: 
Anthropology, Art, Art History & Visual Studies, Cultural History / Studies, Early Modern History and Period Studies, Music and Music History

Music has long been theorised as intangible culture separate from the materiality of musical instruments. Moving beyond approaches that position musical instruments merely as containers for sound, this panel aims to rethink and reassess their material, visual, affective and social dimensions. Recent interdisciplinary ‘turns’ towards new materialisms, posthumanisms, sensorialities and object-orientated ontologies are opening up alternative theoretical and methodological pathways and perspectives for engaging with the material culture of music.

Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) - Call for applications: (Un-)Learning Place (as part of Das Neue Alphabet)

Subject Fields: 
Anthropology, Art, Art History & Visual Studies, Digital Humanities, Humanities, Research and Methodology

The present is characterized by a crisis of the established epistemic-political order. Outdated categories and terms no longer function and representational logics fail to grasp the entanglement of knowledge production in times where the distinction between producers and recipients of knowledge dissolves. Increasingly global societies experience a sharp rise in social complexity, accelerated by digital infrastructures. In this situation, it is necessary to unlearn established modes of referring to the world and to rethink methods of constructing, situating and criticizing reality.
