This conference asks how could both the historical legacy of the Left and its current manifestations and performances contribute to formulating an aesthetic of resistance not only as a reactive practice, but as a way to sustain the politics of inclusion, equality, care for the commons and social justice? We invite contributions from different geographical and political contexts including Latin American, African and Asian countries, as well as case studies from areas that we have been researched more closely within our project: India, Europe, USA.
The conference will take place from April 15th-17th, 2019, at the premises of Warwick University in Venice.
700 word abstracts and short bios to be sent by January 8th, 2019 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
