Call for Papers: Unpacking Residencies: Situating the Production of Cultural Relations [working title] – Kunstlicht Vol. 39 (2018), no. 2
Recent developments in academic scholarship and artistic practices in various fields have seen an increasing interest in the productive and intellectual potential of interpreting history, memory and archive. This preoccupation opened up a wide space of analysis and debate that sees the past not only as a passive “has-been” but rather as a probable “would be” – for better or worse.
We seek a chair and a third (and possibly a fourth) panelist for a proposed OAH 2019 panel on public representations of citizenship. One paper explores the memorialization of masculine ideals of citizenship through analysis of the statue including Theodore Roosevelt that stands outside the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The other paper examines the performance of feminine ideals of citizenship via folk dance in Midwestern institutions of higher education in the early twentieth century.
