A conference at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee
March 8-10, 1996
Issues surrounding the Right seem to be crucial to contemporary
discussions of postmodernity. We see the "Right" at the heart of recent
popular and academic discourses; it can be traced geographically,
politically, and historically. We'd like to discern -- that is,
unhinge -- what appears to be an assumed relationship between the (civil,
moral, political) Right and popular politics, conceived globally and/or
locally through a consideration of various theoretical, critical,
and/or representational discourses and other cultural productions.
We invite papers or panel proposals deriving from a wide variety of
readings of the conference title and a similar variety of disciplinary
perspectives: legal, pedagogical, literary, artistic, anthropological,
race studies, queer, sociological, personal, theoretical, historical,
psychoanalytic, postcolonial, televisual, feminist, cinematic, lesbigay,
scientific, materialist, creative, etc.
Send a 300-word paper or panel proposal (papers should be 15-20 minutes
long) by November 1, 1995, to:
