[UPDATE] The Counterpublics of Underground Comix: MLA 2016 Special Session

updated: 
Tuesday, March 10, 2015 - 12:57pm
MLA/Margaret Galvan and Leah Misemer



When underground comix emerged in America in the 1970s, they were connected with the counter culture movement and rife with anti-establishment content. These comics participated in and addressed counterpublics, which queer theorist Michael Warner defines as "formed by their conflict with the norms and contexts of their cultural environment." Yet much of the scholarship of the underground comix movement has centered on straight white men located in San Francisco (e.g. R. Crumb, S. Clay Wilson).

Modernism's Revolutionary Geographies*
*Please send 300-word abstract and brief CV (one page) to Candis Bond at cbond2@slu.edu by April 01, 2015.

Building on the recent €œ"spatial turn"€ in modernist studies exemplified by scholars such as Andrew Thacker in Moving through Modernity: Space and Geography in Modernism (2003) and Rebecca Walsh in The Geopoetics of Modernism (2015), and in keeping with the conference theme of revolution, this panel considers modernism's innovative contributions to the ontology and perception of urban space, focusing particularly on counter-normative cartographies and deviant spatial practices.

Midwest Modern Language Association

This year's Fabricating the Body panel is soliciting proposals for papers that explore the notion of bodies in our post-human or post-modern culture. Given this year's theme of "Arts and Sciences," this panel seeks papers that consider how scientific inquiry and philosophy has impacted our understanding of bodies in media (literature, film, comics, video games etc.) or as consumers of media. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, theories of the post-human or post-modern body; (dis)abled, queer, global, marginalized, etc.
