DIASPORA STUDIES (LLANES)
2017 SEMINAR August 22-24
Artistic remembrance is an important part of the memorialization of the dictatorial past. This panel seeks to bring together scholars working on different types of artistic renderings of the past in South America in the aftermath of dictatorships. When dictatorships end, artists continue to discuss the past and question issues that are interesting for the organization of the memory of suffering. We invite proposals that analyze specific cases of artists, different types of political art, with a focus on visual arts.

CFP, articles for edited collection: Before Representation: The Camera as Actor
The photograph as a byproduct of intention does not begin with its publication. Although photographs are uniquely powerful because of their reproducibility, the specific camera equipment and its use also needs to be considered for a fuller understanding of the image. Research that focuses on camera technology will help us understand how and in what ways imaging technology impacts and forms the representation out of which we make knowledge, base our judgments, and ultimately act.
