Call for papers: ¡INGOBERNABLES! War, Revolution, and Revolt

Latin American, Iberian, and Latino Cultures

XXIII Annual Graduate Center Student Conference

19-20 APRIL, 2018

Keynote Speakers: Silvia Federici and Juan González

Se cumplen 100 años de la reforma universitaria de 1918 que empezó con una revuelta de estudiantes en Córdoba (Argentina) y se extendió por toda América dando origen a una amplia tendencia de activismo estudiantil y autonomismo. Al hilo del centenario queremos extender la reflexión y pensar los movimientos sociales y culturales como agentes transformadores de las formas de gobernabilidad.

¿Son nociones como ‘Guerra’, ‘Revolución’, o ‘Revuelta’ todavía funcionales en la situación de conflicto transnacional que hoy atestiguamos? La temática del XXIII Congreso de Estudiantes LAILAC gira en torno a la problemática de la gobernabilidad, los movimientos sociales, las corrientes culturales y contrapoderes en relación orgánica y/o en tensión con formas de control hegemónico. Queremos entablar una conversación que incorpore los contextos históricos, culturales, lingüísticos y geográficos latinoamericanos, peninsulares y latinos. No obstante, serán igualmente bienvenidos trabajos vinculados a otras áreas o a otros territorios.

Creemos que es este un momento de urgencia para revisar la tradición de estos movimientos y, desde ahí, repensarnos históricamente. Proponemos abrir un espacio desde donde explorar nuestras fortalezas y debilidades para poder plantear nuevos horizontes de posibilidad. En línea con el trabajo que se viene realizando desde el departamento de LAILAC, tanto desde sus actividades como desde el trabajo de sus miembros, nos interesa especialmente tender puentes entre la academia y la calle.

XXIII LAILAC GRADUATE STUDENT CONFERENCE

¡Ingobernables! War, Revolution & Revolt

One hundred years have passed since the university reform of 1918 that began with a student revolt in Cordoba, Argentina. Later, this movement ignited a wave of student activism and autonomy that extended to the rest of the Americas. In light of the centennial, we would like to reflect on and think about social and cultural movements as  agents of change in forms of governance.
Is it sufficient to think about notions such as “War,” “Revolution,” and “Revolt” in the context of the transnational conflict that we face today? The central questions of the XXIII LAILAC Student Conference revolve around the issues of governance, social movements, cultural trends, and countervailing powers in connection, whether organically and/or forcefully, to forms of hegemonic control. We would like to engage in a conversation that incorporates historical, cultural, and linguistic contexts within Latin American, Peninsular, and Latino communities. Proposals relating to other areas and territories are also welcome.
We believe that this is a moment of urgency in which we must revisit the conventions of these movements and from there reimagine ourselves historically. We propose opening a space to explore our strengths and weaknesses with the hope of presenting broader horizons and new possibilities. In line with the work being done by and within the LAILAC department we are especially interested in bridging the gap between academia and the streets.

Detroit’s black and Latino LGBTQ communities

Professor of Gender Studies and American Studies at Indiana University, Marlon M. Bailey presents his rich first-person performance ethnography and memoir of dance, dress, and vogue ballroom competitions in Detroit’s black and Latino LGBTQ communities. By sharing his stories and experiences, Bailey demonstrates the ways such cultural formations are spaces of resistance that disrupt dominant notions of gender, sexuality, and community, and create alternative kinship structures.
