Anthem: Remixing Race and Nation

A public symposium taking a critical view of 2016 through a controversial song that announced a cultural turn toward a Trump presidency: “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Featured guests will include NFL quarterback and activist Colin Kaepernick, whose refusal to stand during the playing of the national anthem caused a national firestorm of debate, as well as Rene Marie, a jazz vocalist whose 2008 performance of the anthem in advance of the Democratic National Convention combined the tune of “The Star-Spangled Banner” with the lyrics of the Negro National Anthem “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing.” Event

Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, Professor of English, Emory University; and Karen Nakamura, Professor of Anthropology and Chair of Disability Studies, UC Berkeley

The award provides funding to host Rosemarie Garland-Thomson and Karen Nakamura as part of UCLA Disability Studies' conference on Disability as Spectacle. This interdisciplinary conference aims to stimulate a discussion around how society constructs, reacts, and embraces or rejects visible and invisible disabilities in the public sphere. As visibility continues to increase in popular culture, scholars will need to confront a changing landscape in which (some) disabilities are de-stigmatized while others are prevented from participating in the new visibility.
