MMLA 2020 Popular Culture Permanent Session CFP: Fan Responses to Popular Culture

updated: 
Monday, February 24, 2020 - 3:58pm
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 5, 2020

Last year, when Fox canceled the television show Lucifer, a fan campaign to save the show resulted in Netflix picking it up for another season. This was not an isolated incident. Collectives of fans, gathering both online and in person, often influence the longevity, the content, the dispersal, and the afterlife of their favorite shows, games, songs, and other popular culture artifacts. In response to the conference theme “Cultures of Collectivity,” the popular culture permanent session invites papers that investigate how both planned and spontaneous groups appropriate or influence popular culture.

 

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

                Fan based activism of all sorts

Sunday, April 19, 2020

 

In 2016 Oxford Dictionaries named ”Post-truth” as the international word of the year, but as Lee McIntyre argues in his book Post-Truth (MIT, 2018), the concept of post-truth is not a new one, as he cites the vociferous arguments made against the cancer causing effects of cigarettes, the assault on vaccinations, and other significant moments of push-back that have occurred when the facts will out. 

However, in the 2010s the omnipresent nature of post-truth arguments has accelerated and is now an omnipresent part of our lives (on international, national, regional, and communal scales).

The theatre, as one might imagine, has noticed and has responded.

In her 2014 Transgender Studies Quarterly article, "The Technical Capacities of the Body, Assembling Race, Technology, and Transgender," Jules Gill-Peterson argues that "if both transgender and race benefit from treatment as technical capacities of the body, it remains to explain how it is they retain their differences in this framework as well as how they are made more or less available at various ecological scales by systems of normalization and regulation" (412).
