Matthew Holtmeier, Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in Screen Studies, publishes article on Battle of Algiers and Outside the Law in the peer-reviewed journal Film-Philosophy.
Contributed by Stephen Tropiano on 11/14/2016
The article, titled “The Modern Political Cinema: From Third Cinema to Contemporary Networked Biopolitics,” looks at a qualitative shift in global political cinemas within the new era of globalization. Outside the Law reworks the earlier Battle of Algiers in order to situate the Algerian Revolution in an increasingly globalizing world. This acknowledgement has important ramifications for the production of political subjectivity, which is both fragmented and networked by global flows of information, economies, and people. The cinematic production of subjectivity offers an important critique of Samuel P. Huntington’s Clash of the Civilizations, illustrating the unique potential of film to enter into contemporary debates surrounding international relations.

Chrystyna Dail, Assistant Professor in Theatre Arts, publishes Stage for Action: U.S. Social Activist Theatre in the 1940s with Southern Illinois University Press.
Contributed by Wendy Dann on 11/13/2016
Drawing on underexplored and only recently available archives, Chrystyna Dail examines the influence of Stage for Action, a theatre group founded in 1943, on social activist theatre in the 1940s, early 1950s, and later. Exploring the intersection between performance and politics and the direct impact of the arts on social activism, Dail argues Stage for Action is a theatrical reflection of progressivism and the pro-working-class theatrical aesthetic of the 1940s. The theatre group, which used performance to encourage direct action and personal responsibility for change, eventually would function as the theatrical voice of the United States Progressive Party in the failed presidential campaign of former vice president Henry A. Wallace.
Dail's book won the American Theatre and Drama Society's 2016 Publication Subvention Award and is a part of SIUP's Theater in the Americas series.

Carlos Figueroa recently published Op-ed piece "Donald Trump's Rebranding of U.S Politics Matters," Fair Observer
Contributed by Carlos Figueroa on 11/05/2016
"Why does Donald Trump matter? What factors seem to explain the flourishing of a Trump political brand?
Rising income and wealth inequalities across segments of the declining middle class, the growth of conservative media outlets since the 1980s—especially Rupert Murdoch’s business ventures—and the expanding campaign finance system that opens the powerful moneyed interests have all played a part. As do the return of identity politics over recognition and redistribution from the left and right—the political fights and white backlash over affirmative action, Black Lives Matter and the struggles over the classification system, leading to what I call a cultural war over taxonomy as politics for defining citizenship, civic worth and social entitlements.
