* apologies for cross-posting *

Following requests, the deadline for proposals for this event has been extended by a month to May 20, so there's still time to work on something.

Proposals of no more than 250 words should be sent to Thomas Austin ((t.r.austin /at/<mailto:(t.r.austin /at/>) by 20 May 2021.Thanks very much.

Working across a range of formats, from video art and gallery installations to Hollywood to BBC1 with his recent Small Axe pentalogy, SteveMcQueen’s prodigious output has been marked by formal ambition and political urgency, engaging most notably, but not exclusively, with black experience in racialised settings. This symposium interrogates his body of work, its political, aesthetic and institutional dimensions, and the interfaces between them.

Keynote speaker: Dr Clive Nwonka, University of York

Proposed papers are especially welcome on, but not limited to, the following topics:


The body


Funding, commissioning, production

Haptic images




Memory and memorialisation



Popular genre/s

Sex and sexuality
