Representations and Critiques of Social Justice

Social protest and subversion are at the foundation of Anthropology and the communities who offer subject matter for the discipline.  Both academia and community have found many ways to artistically present social movements, resistance, and protest to hegemonic structures of inequality at both individual and community levels. This consists of, but is not limited to: television, radio, internet, music, poetry, literature, theatre, space-occupation, and body-political approaches. What is more, human injustices are broad in spectrum, from culture to sexuality, and from social class to the environment; the challenges are myriad and global. In an attempt to look critically at how social justice is defined and enacted, we invite abstracts for presentation of formal papers dealing with representations of social justice via social mediums such as: television, radio, internet, music, poetry, literature, theatre, space-occupation, and body-political performances. We welcome individual, group, community, academic, government and policy-based demonstrations, presentations, performances and workshops.

Deadline for Submission of Abstract or Presentation Proposals: February 1, 2016 via this survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2016_HPSfAA_Abstract_Submission
