Afrofuturism has become increasingly central to critical conversations about Afro-pessimism, race relations, and cultural histories. This proposed panel draws from Benedict Anderson’s conception of “nation” in his pivotal text Imagined Communities as a generative starting point for thinking about black community formations, black futurity, and cultural histories represented in literature. Anderson claims that “since World War II every successful revolution has defined itself in national terms” (2). However, nations are merely “imagined political communities… as both inherently limited and sovereign” (6).

Our age is one of refugee crises, of wars where the civilian population is more exposed than ever before, and of terrorist attacks that can produce more victims than organized combat. Today, information about all of these events circulates faster than ever, particularly outside of traditional media outlets.  Witnessing and reporting about destruction has never been easier, and cultural memory and social responsibility are more mobile and more complicated as a consequence.

The current “crisis” in the academic job market was already unfolding a decade before many recent PhDs were even born. The pages of publications like the Chronicle of Higher Education are littered with grim reports on the state of the profession, jeremiads against adjunctification, glib inducements to go “alt-ac,” elegies for those lost to the academy, and of course, “quit lit” testimonials by scholars who have said goodbye to the tenure-track job market. Talk is cheap, but organizing gets the goods. Accordingly, this roundtable will explore how members of academia’s army of surplus labor are responding to this situation and what alternative futures they are already working toward.

The tension between the visible city and the invisible city produces an increasingly marginalized society. The end of the Fordist pact constituted a break between the modern and postmodern city, laying the foundations for the most radical paradigm shift that the urban phenomenon has experienced in the last four decades. A specific pervasiveness has influenced different levels of the social structure, and this phenomenon has characterized the advent of the neoliberal new economy.

The dramatic increase of U.S. original scripted TV productions over the last decade has come to be known as “Peak TV.” As Hollywood mega-corporations intensify their investment in streaming platforms to compete with Netflix, new TV offerings will be more ubiquitous — yet more isolated behind exclusive paywalls — than ever. Enter the industry’s latest buzz-phrase: tentpole TV.

We are pursuing two more chapters to round out our edited volume on the intersection of children’s/youth agency in fantasy. Chapters must be fully constituted and directly reference theories and research from the social studies of children/youth and/or children’s geographies, particularly that which attends to agency (of course, in addition to whatever other published work in your discipline that contributes to your central arguments). Chapters should use fantasy popular cultural forms as sources of analyses – these may include television, cartoons, films, novels, toys, comic books/graphic novels, advertising, storytelling/folklore, fashion, art, video games, etc.
