Moving On the Wires: Alien Bodies’ Logo Contest


Via Alien Bodies:


The 2013 Emory Alien Bodies: Race, Space, Sex and the African Diaspora Conference is pleased to announce a Logo Contest!

The conference explores such questions as: how do we begin to understand the ways in which race, space, and sex configure “the alien” within spaces allegedly “beyond” markers of difference? In doing so, this conference also seeks to provide a forum for discussion on what Afro-Diaspora Studies as a field and as a network of analytical approaches can further contribute to the examination of the positions of Blacks around the world. We are looking for visual representations that best represents our conference topics including:

  • Environmental Justice
  • Critical Race Theory
  • Gender and Sexuality
  • Class
  • Disability Justice
  • Ethnicity and National Identity
  • Digital Humanities and New Media
  • Afrofuturism
  • Black Nihilism
  • Queer Theory
  • Film, Photography, and Visual Culture
  • Music, Soundscapes and Social noise
  • Performance and Performativity
  • Geography and Space
  • Speculative Fiction

Presented by the African-American Studies Collective at Emory University, Atlanta, GA in the Spring of 2013
