The Art of Change: Conversations with Ford Foundation Fellows–Live Webcast, Fri., Jan. 15, 2016, 9am-5pm Eastern Time

Please join us for a live webcast of “The Artists of Change,” a daylong forum with our Art of Change Fellows—13 creative visionaries working at the forefront of art and social change. Over the course of the year, the Fellows have pursued independent projects on critical issues such as surveillance, climate change, drug policy and capitalism, soft power, diversity in the arts, social networks, and the power of technology. Tune in as they share their work and spark lively conversation—with the audience and each other—around the ideas they are exploring.

CFP: African American Expression in Print and Digital Culture @ University of Wisconsin, Madison, September 2014

“In Their Own Images: Visual Culture in African American Periodicals”

African American periodicals such as the Indianapolis Freeman, Colored American, Crisis, Opportunity, and The Black Panther emphasize the impact of images, as well as the printed word, in enabling black Americans’ self-expression and empowerment. Such periodicals often have been the primary venues for showcasing and supporting the work of black visual artists, including Aaron Douglas, Black Panther illustrator Emory Douglas, and political cartoonist Garfield Haywood. This interdisciplinary panel seeks papers that address the production, history, and aesthetics of black periodical art in a range of forms: mastheads and stock images, cover art, comics, sketches, political cartoons, and other illustrations. Papers may address any twentieth- or twentieth-first century African American periodical art or artist(s). Submissions that focus on the New Negro Movement, Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights era, and Black Arts and Black Power Movement are especially welcome.

This panel is proposed for the conference “African American Expression in Print and Digital Culture,” to be held on September 19 – 21, 2014: http://www.slis.wisc.edu/chpcconf.htm.
