Journal of Surrealism and the Americas (JSA)

The Journal of Surrealism and the Americas (JSA) focuses on the subject of modern European and American intellectuals’ obsession with the “New World.”  This obsession-the very heart of Surrealism-extended not only to North American sites, but also to Latin America, the Caribbean, and to the numerous indigenous cultures located there.

The journal invites essays that examine aspects of the actual and fantasized travel of these European and American intellectuals throughout the Americas, and their creative response to indigenous art and culture, including their anthropological and collecting activities, and their interpretations of the various geographic, political, and cultural landscapes of the Americas.

They furthermore intend to investigate the interventions / negotiations / repudiations of European/American or other surrealisms, by indigenous as well as other artists, writers and filmmakers.

After registration, it is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet. Please click here to access.

Making a Difference Through the Arts

The Asia Society released the report in August 2010, and it was part of a broader effort “to stimulate new thinking and to identify extant resources than can enhance connectivity between the United States and Muslim communities in Asia.” The report takes a close look at the “diverse ways in which stakeholders in cultural development and exchange initiatives in and with Asian Muslim communities have built successful projects by drawing on culturally grounded knowledge and strategies.” Throughout its 95-pages the report offers reports from successful initiatives across the globe, and it also spells out six core principles and strategies based on the empirical case studies from this work. For anyone interested in this type of cultural
policy work, this piece will be most helpful.
