Angela Davis: Legacies in the Making

Professor Angela Davis and University of California Santa Cruz is pleased to announce a call for papers for the 2009 Legacies in the Making. Abstract deadline: August 15, 2009.

Angela Davis: Legacies in the Making
October 31 - November 1, 2009
UC Santa Cruz
For almost four decades, Angela Y. Davis's scholarship and activism has defined the meaning and practice of being a public intellectual and has radically transformed many sites of knowledge production, including the positioning of the U.S. academy as a site of intervention and social transformation. Few professors have had such a broad impact in their fields of expertise or on the world in their lifetimes. This gathering of her former students, in conversation with scholars nationally, maps the impact of her vision on issues such as democratic theory, philosophy, Marxism, cultural studies/popular culture, social policy, race, class, and feminisms. Professor Davis has also trained students as activist scholars for almost four decades in both university systems in California. We thus convene this conference to examine the poetics and politics of Professor Davis's pedagogy in California over the past forty years (1969-2009) and to consider how her role as an activist scholar/teacher bridges the academy/community divide and dismantles the false dichotomy of theory/praxis.
Interested scholars and activists are invited to submit abstracts for fifteen to twenty-minute presentations addressing the work of Angela Y. Davis for the following four panels (please indicate which panel you wish to participate in). A fifth panel, Legacies in the Making, facilitated by Professor Bettina Aptheker, is by invitation. Questions and inquiries may be directed to: davissymposium2009@gmail.com
Abstracts must include your name, professional title and affiliation, e-mail address and telephone, a presentation title, and should be 500-700 words in length. Please mail your submission, subject heading "AYD abstract," to: ihr@ucsc.edu as a pdf file by August 15, 2009. For more information, please see http://ihr.ucsc.edu/Panel 1: Voices of Resistance
Facilitator: Rashad Shabazz, George Washington Henderson Post Doctoral Fellow, Geography, University of Vermont.
This panel addresses themes of institutional persecution and individual and collective resistances. Institutions can include, but are not limited to, the prison industrial complex, the state, schools, the workplace, and the home, and resistances might be anything from direct action to cultural production and pedagogy.
Panel 2: Race, Gender, and Politics
Facilitator: Kehaulani Kauanui, American Studies, Anthropology, Wesleyan University.
In this panel presenters will be discussing how Angela Davis's framing of race, gender, and politics have affected their work. Papers may also address the history and legacy of Davis's political affiliations by identifying a particular argument or theoretical approach from Davis's texts or lectures, and by discussing how their work builds upon that approach.
Panel 3: Cultural Legacies
Facilitator: Kevin Fellezs, School of Social Sciences, Humanities, and Arts, UC Merced.
Papers in this panel will connect the presenters' work with Angela Davis's analyses of such cultural productions as the Blues and visual representation, and the complex relationship of culture to race, gender, class, and sexuality.
Panel 4: Are Prisons Obsolete?
Facilitator: Sora Han, Criminology, Law and Society, UC Irvine.
Angela Davis's contribution to critiques of state violence and the prison industrial complex is considerable; the papers in this panel will explore how panelists have drawn on that work to inform their own related projects.

Call for Chapters: The Black Imagination, Science Fiction & Futurism

Professors from DePaul University have announced a call for papers for a book in development that explores the Black imagination, science fiction and futurism in literature, film and the visual arts. Abstract deadline: August 30, 2009.

DePaul University professors have announced a call for papers for a book in development that explores the Black imagination, science fiction and futurism in literature, film and the visual arts. Works included will explore speculative, fantasy as well as hybrid genres - of black writers, film-makers and visual artists -- their visions of the future, alternative pasts, critiques of the
present as well as other possibilities.
While the genre of science fiction has a long history of social commentary, it has not given much attention to issues of race and ethnicity let alone their intersections with sex and gender in the context of imagined futures. Historically, the focus has been on social and political commentary, as well as fantasy, growing out of Western experiences -- geo-politics, and conflicts between and among nation-states as well as those between governments and their citizens, and responses to social, cultural and technological changes. It was not until the mid-20th century that science fiction by Black writers emerged. At times, many of these works were not explicitly defined as science fiction; yet, the conventions of the genre, often embedded in a multiplicity of narrative forms, using a variety of tropes, indicate clearly that social commentary - initially regarding the state of the race -- as well as speculation about the future have been at the heart of works produced by Black writers since the early 20th century.
Contemporary works by writers and film-makers in the Black and African Diaspora have extended the boundaries of discourse, explicitly embracing the genre, envisioning different times, places, and social arrangements - addressing not only issues of race, ethnicity, gender and color, the presence of Black individuals or beings coded as black, and also examining issues related to politics and technology. Science and speculative fiction by Black writers is a genre that is growing, expanding the boundaries, presenting perspectives and posing questions
not addressed in canonical works. These issues we seek to explore in the book.
They are seeking papers that critically examine works of contemporary voices of the Black and African Diaspora that engage us in thinking about imagined futures related to race, gender, identity, power, space, time, and technology. The following topics are of particular
interest: the recent works of Octavia Butler, the work of Samuel Delaney and Steve Barnes; as well as topics related to Afro-Futurism and speculative fiction by Black writers, film-makers and visual artists.


• Abstracts of approximately 400-500 words should be submitted via e-mail by August 30th, 2009. They should be sent in a Word document as an attachment, accompanied by the following information: full name of the author, university affiliation, and title of the abstract.
•Notification regarding acceptance will be sent to authors by September 30, 2009.
• Final papers will be due by May 30, 2010.

The University of Minnesota and The Luce Scholars Program invites applications for Professional Apprenticeships in Asia. For questions and applications please see the Graduate School Fellowship Office, 314 Johnston Hall. Application deadline: October 1, 2009.

Professional Apprenticeships in Asia
Background: The University of Minnesota is one of seventy colleges and universities invited to participate in the Luce Scholars Program. Eighteen young Americans of outstanding promise and high leadership ability are sent each year to Asia for professional apprenticeships under the guidance of leading Asians. Internships and job placements are arranged for each Scholar on the basis of individual career interests, experience, training, and general background. (No academic credit is involved.) The year-long program begins in August.
Eligibility: Applicants must be U.S. citizens no more than twenty-nine years of age on September 1 of the year they would enter the program. They must have earned at least a Bachelor's degree or its equivalent prior to their participation in the program. They may be currently-enrolled students in any college, recent graduates, or junior faculty. Applicants who have a major in Asian studies, or who have already had significant exposure to Asia will be considered ineligible. Applicants who can reasonably be expected to gain such exposure during the course of their career will also be ineligible.
Application: The Luce Scholars application consists of the following: 1) Application form; 2) Personal statement no more than 1,000 words outlining (a) long-range career interests, how they developed, and plans for pursuing them in the future, and (b) reasons for applying to the Luce Scholars Program; 3) Academic transcripts; 4) Two recent passport photographs; 5) Four letters of recommendation; 6) Contact Information Form.
Stipend and Allowances: Luce Scholars receive a significant basic stipend and, if necessary, separate cost-of-living or housing allowances. Economy class air transportation and medical insurance are also provided.
Language: Since the program is geared to the non-specialist, knowledge of an Asian language is not a criterion for selection. It is assumed that all Scholars will study the appropriate language prior to their departure. Special funds may be made available for this purpose.
Selection Criteria: Applicants should have a strong, mature, and clearly defined career interest in a specific field (other than Asian studies). Applicants should have a record of sound academic achievement, strong motivation and potential for accomplishment within their chosen career interest, and should give evidence of an outstanding capacity for leadership.
Application Procedure: Campus interviews are conducted during the month of October. The University of Minnesota may submit three nominations. Further information and application materials may be obtained from:

Comparative Indigeneities of the Americas Proposal Submissions

The editors of "Comparative Indigeneities of the Americas" have announced a call for proposal submissions for their upcoming volume. Proposal submission deadline: July 31, 2009.

Call for Proposal Submissions: July 31, 2009
Comparative Indigeneities of the Americas
Editors: Arturo J. Aldama, M. Bianet Castellanos,
and Lourdes Gutiérrez Nájera
Political and economic crises in Latin America have forced indigenous people to migrate
within the Americas. For example, there are now just as many Zapotecs, Mixes, and
Triquis living and working in California as can be found in their native state of Oaxaca in
Mexico. Recent scholarship on indigenous migrants document the harsh living and
working conditions under which they toil and highlight the multiple ways they cope under
these circumstances. Like the native peoples of the United States, these migrants face
similar issues of economic marginalization and racial, gender, and sexual
discrimination. Regardless of this shared postcolonial condition and in spite of their
proximity (now more so than ever), very little scholarly collaboration occurs between
U.S. and Canadian Indians and indigenous groups in the Americas.
Chicano scholars since the 1960s have made the most concerted effort to engage
indigenous Latin Americans in their scholarship and to acknowledge an indigenous
ancestry. Through a process of re-Indianization, scholars like Gloria Anzald√∫a, Ana
Castillo, and Yolanda Broyles-Gonzalez embrace an indigenous past as a form of
resistance against racial, economic, and political oppression. The push toward
indigenismo within Chicana scholarship may be perceived as part of the growing trend
to claim indigeneity. Not surprisingly, these declarations have generated more suspicion
and tension than a welcoming, fraternal reception from Native people. This tension
points towards a need to theorize and conceptualize indigeneity to acknowledge both
historical shifts and cultural erasure without making claims on indigenous resources.
To address these tensions, the edited volume relies on a hemispheric approach to
indigenous studies that interrogates key concepts and methodologies, including their
intellectual genealogies, used to analyze indigenous experiences across the Americas.
Granted tribal histories within and between these countries are historically specific and
distinctive, but given that these histories overlap and that geographic and linguistic
distinctions are becoming increasingly blurred, what does it mean to be indigenous
today? Anthropologists have analyzed the ideologies that undergird indigenism, but
what happens to ideologies of indigeneity when they are framed within an international,
comparative context? Our objectives for this interdisciplinary volume are to bring
together a group of engaged scholars from different disciplines, fields of study,
geographic regions, and ethnic backgrounds (including tribal affiliations) to analyze
intersecting themes and histories across the Americas, while promoting a broader
understanding of the relationships between native communities in the U.S. and Canada
and those in Latin America.
The edited volume will be organized around key concepts that emerge from studies of
indigenous peoples in the Americas and arranged into four intersecting themes:
indigenism/xicanismo, mestizaje/hybridity, migration/displacement, and
autonomy/sovereignty. In spite of being ubiquitous, these concepts and themes are not
understood or deployed in the same way across ethnic groups, disciplines or national
boundaries. We seek essays that foster a shared understanding of these analytical
concepts and the decolonial methodologies used to unpack them, and that will promote
their adoption outside of their disciplinary home. This exchange will provide scholars
with new tools and alternative frameworks by which to analyze native communities and
structure an international comparative framework for indigenous studies. The edited
volume will be of interest to students in Ethnic Studies, American Studies, American
Indian Studies, Chicano Studies, Gender and Women's Studies, Queer Studies,
Latina/o Studies, Latin American Studies, Post-Colonial Studies, Anthropology, History,
and Cultural Studies.
BY JULY 31, 2009, please submit a 2-3 page proposal and 2 page CV single space, ms
word, times new roman to the editors: arturo.aldama@colorado.edu, mbc@umn.edu,
We will select the contributing essays by September 1, 2009, at which point we will
begin working with a university press to publish the volume. Complete essay drafts are
due December 15, 2009.

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies Conference-Workshop

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies at the University of Washington Seattle is please to announce the conference-workshop, "Beyond Borders: Alternative Voices and Histories of the Vietnamese Diaspora" on March 4-7, 2010.

Call for papers: "Beyond Borders: alternative voices and histories of the Vietnamese diaspora," March 4 - 7, 2010,
The Center for Southeast Asian Studies at the University of Washington, Seattle (USA), announces the conference-workshop: "Beyond Borders: alternative voices and histories of the Vietnamese diaspora," March 4-7, 2010.
Coordinators: Christoph Giebel, Judith Henchy, University of Washington, Seattle; Co-coordinators: Mariam B. Lam, University of California, Riverside; Jack Yeager, Louisiana State University
The third in a trilogy of conference-workshops, "Alternative Voices and Histories in Viet Nam: Colonial Modernities and Post-colonial Narratives," this workshop will focus on the disparate margins of Vietnamese identities. We will explore the particular and multiple
histories of Vietnamese overseas sojourn, migration and exile, and how they can help articulate our interest in marginal voices in Vietnamese historiography with the disciplinary concerns of ethnic and global cultural studies. Two scholars of the Vietnamese diaspora will help frame our workshop with distinct Francophone and American perspectives, and serve as "keynote speakers in dialog": Jack Yeager
(LSU) and Mariam Lam (UC Riverside).
The March 4-7, 2010 "Beyond Borders" conference-workshop is seeking a variety of papers on the Vietnamese diaspora, broadly defined in time and space. A more detailed announcement and call for papers will be issued later in the summer.
