Artivismo: The Place Of Art And Politics In Latin America
Graduate Conference on Friday 9th November 2018
University of Cambridge
Alison Richard Building, SG1


CALL FOR PAPERS

Co-organised by the Centre of Latin American Studies (CLAS) and the Section of Spanish and Portuguese Graduate students and early-career researchers from all disciplines are invited to share their original research in this interdisciplinary one-day conference devoted to exploring the intersections between art and politics in Latin America. We are delighted to announce that Prof Claire Taylor (University of Liverpool) and Dr Carlos Fonseca (University of Cambridge) will join us as Keynote Speakers for this event.

The aim of this conference is to explore how artistic interventions held in public spaces in Latin America in recent years are reshaping the ‘proper place’ and agendas of both art and politics in the region. We are interested in interventions into state politics that combine art and activism, which have been on the rise in countries like Mexico, Colombia and Argentina. These practices engage urgent questions that are being widely disputed throughout the region, concerning violence, memory and citizenship.

Topics to be explored in presentations may include, but are not limited to:
-Human rights discourses
-Politics of memory and heritage
-Environmental and other forms of activism
-Migration and displacement
-Violence and social conflict
-Nationalism and sovereignty
-Identity politics and citizenship
-Commemorations and festivities

Artistic interventions may include, but are not limited to:
-Theatre and performance art
-Music and dance cultures
-Graphic art and propaganda
-Graffiti and street art
-Demonstrations
-Parades and carnivals
-Oral cultures and speeches

To be considered, please submit:
an abstract/summary of the paper (max 500 words)
a short bio (max 150 words) describing affiliation and research interests
contact details

Presentations should not exceed 20 minutes.

We invite submissions in English, Spanish or Portuguese. Please send these to artivismo2018@gmail.com by Friday August 31st 2018.

Participation is free. For more information, check our website.

Conference organisers: Tatiana Vargas-Ortiz, Erika Teichert and Benjamin Quarshie.
