Abstract: On June 26, 1993, President Clinton ordered an attack against Baghdad in retaliation for an assassination plot against former President Bush. The military strike was Clinton’s first and came at a crucial time in his presidency. The rhetorical strategies of responsibility, cause and effect, and time were significant to Clinton’s case because Saddam Hussein was held responsible for the attacks, and the delay for the appropriate response was portrayed as the product of careful deliberation.

a) the relationship between the BAM and contemporary black poetry and hip hop

b) the regulation and selection of what texts are deemed offensive versus acceptable when discussing Black women and sex

c) the depiction of black women in hip hop, particularly mainstream rap,

3. Davis, Stuart. and Straubhaar, Joseph. "Beyond Twitter Revolutions: The June 2013 Brazilian Mobilizations in National and International News Media" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association 65th Annual Conference, Caribe Hilton, San Juan, Puerto Rico, <Not Available>. 2019-06-18 <>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: As part of the panel’s attempt to create a comparative framework for addressing the position of communication technology in geographically and culturally disparate protest movements, this paper traces the role of national and international news media in the 2013 mobilizations in Brazil. In particular, we would like to address a few central elements that might offer points of comparison including the role of international news outlets in mediating messages coming out of the protests via social media, the rise of new social media-based news forums, and a general distrust of mainstream media by activists. We would also like to point out potential contrast points around elements specific to the Brazilian media system including the influential role of newspapers aimed at lower class urban audiences and the role of various political parties in shaping dissident media (Albuquerque, 2012).

Abstract: What was at stake in Brazil’s 2013-2014 cycle of urban protests? Many observers were initially optimistic about the meaning of June 2013. According to many observers, the beauty of Brazil’s so-called June Days—the country’s largest uprising since the fall of the dictatorship 25 years prior—were that they were horizontal, leaderless, and purportedly apolitical. The estimated one million who filled the streets in over 350 cities brought contradictory demands. One common thread, however, seemed to be the protestors’ disillusionment with all forms of organized politics, from parties to unions; from NGOs to traditional social movements. This paper begins to investigate how inclusive, politicized, and significant the demonstrations were, and under what conditions we might have expected different outcomes.

5. Oh, Gyung Eun. "A Strange Case of a Male Artist Using Female Subjectivity: Nam June Paik’s Voice as a Woman" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Asian Studies - Annual Conference, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, Toronto, Canada, <Not Available>. 2019-06-18 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Nam June Paik is well-known for his performance pieces written for woman collaborators. His proposal of Chronicle of a Beautiful Paintress (1963) for Fluxus artist Alison Knowles calls upon her to stain the flags of different nations "with your own monthly blood" and to "expose […] yourself in a beautiful gallery." Avant-Garde cellist Charlotte Moorman performed with nothing but an art object called TV Bra on her torso, and even strip teased in front of the audience under Paik’s directions. Such performances can be interpreted as examples of a male artist’s sexual objectification of the female body. Indeed, Knowles herself revolted at Paik’s direction and never completed the aforementioned performance piece. This paper questions whether such a reaction was well-grounded and reconsiders Nam June Paik’s ostensive sexist performance compositions from an alternative perspective.

As an Asian male expatriate working in Europe and in the U.S. in the 1950s and 1960s, Paik was conscious of his position as the marginalized being. With evidence collected from another female collaborator Shigeko Kubota, and newly-found poems by Paik written in a female voice, I argue that Paik identified himself with women’s status in the art world as second-class artists, and therefore masked his gender with the aid of women collaborators who agreed with his idea of criticizing the institutional discrimination as performers in Paik’s works. Subsequently, his performances using female bodies are read not as the symbols of androcentrism but as Paik’s own self-representational strategy to destabilize the male-dominant artistic subjectivity of Modernism.
