'Henry & Sunny' go Dutch!!!
We are thrilled to announce 'Henry & Sunny' will screen in Amsterdam tomorrow night (Tuesday, March 23) as part of Articulation(s) - an international workshop run by the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis.
Articulation(s) - ASCA International Workshop 2010
How do we analyze, understand, and participate in the world? What are the ways in which we can think through concepts such as aesthetics, identity, politics, and space to articulate the object(s) of our inquiry?
These are a few of the questions the 2010 ASCA International Workshop, "Articulation(s)," seeks to explore. The workshop offers a space in which we can reflect upon such questions and the methodological nuances, theoretical consequences, and political implications that arise when we interrogate (trans)national theories, disciplines, and contested object(s).
With its double meaning, to express and to connect, articulation(s) highlights the contingency of the unities of meaning and of discourse(s) that we ascribe to our object(s) in question. Articulation(s) is a generative concept that has been prominent in shaping theory for decades. Working (inter)disciplinarily in the humanities, articulation(s), as a travelling concept, refers to the engaging of objects, concepts, and theories and the (im)possibilities of interrogation.
In this workshop articulation(s) is presented in relation to four distinct themes that we will (re)articulate and/or interrogate to see whether they help us express the relationships between theories, discipline, and object(s) from our various fields.
These issues will be discussed in four panels:
* National Identity
* Migratory Aesthetics
* Politics of Mourning
The 2010 ASCA International Workshop: Articulations will take place March 22-24, 2010 at the University of Amsterdam. The deadline for proposals is October 31, 2009. For more information about the workshop and how to submit a proposal, please click the Call for Papers link.
