International Conference: Infrastructures of Racism and the Contours of Black Vitality and Resistance

International Conference: “Infrastructures of Racism and the Contours of Black Vitality and Resistance.”

University of Torino (Italy), 23-25 March 2023

This conference intends to explore the continuing and systemic infrastructures of racism, in light of the discriminatory nature of spatial politics and techniques of population management organized along racial lines in the United States. Our entry point into such discussion will be the analysis of material systems—infrastructures— as a tangible trace of the institutional impact on the lives of racialized people in the U.S., from ...

The Interstitial Commons

The interstitial, according to Erik Olin Wright, constitutes a set of marginal practices within a dominant power structure that remain relatively autonomous from the governing logic of that system. From this location, “new forms of social relations that embody emancipatory ideals and that are created primarily through direct action of one sort or another rather than through the state” can take shape, prefiguring a society liberated from the law of value’s unequal calculus (Wright 2010, 324). This panel examines interstitial forms and relations ...

Dig It! Gardening for Social Change

Are there any other ASLE/AESS folks out there who have been involved in starting organic vegetable gardens and/or pollinator sanctuaries on their campuses or in their communities who would like to be part of a panel for the upcoming conference that explores aspects of that experience? Such projects help to “reclaim the commons” in numerous and joyous ways. Gardens and pollinator sanctuaries reclaim space on college campuses for the nurturance of our spirits. They provide spaces for genuine experiential learning related to sustainable ...

This panel seeks to examine diverse examples of cultural production engaging with environmental issues in Latin America, Spain, and Portugal through a critical cultural studies lens. We are especially interested in papers that examine theoretical approaches and cultural works such as film, literature, performances, or music articulated from these regions—and in Spanish, Portuguese, or Indigenous languages—that enter into critical dialogue with global debates surrounding an ecological commons.

Disruptive Imaginations

Disruptive Imaginations Joint Annual Conference of SFRA and GfF TU Dresden, Germany, August 15-19, 2023

(Re)Writing the West

Panel proposed at the 2023 ASLE + AESS Conference: “Reclaiming the Commons”

July 9-12, 2023 in Portland, Oregon

Public lands in the US West are palimpsests of signs, including pictographs, inscriptions, benchmarks, boundary signage, interpretive signage, trail registries, geocaches, maps, field guides, literary texts, and more. These signs and traces of Indigenous inhabitation, colonialism from Spanish, Mormon, and other Euroamerican settlers, diasporic dwellings and departures tear and wrinkle these spaces into both literary and literal topographies. During their first century under public management, these lands ...
