Hypervisibility III - Beyond the Closet: Coming-Out Narratives in Transnational Visual Cultures

University of Ottawa, Canada

In 'La Queer Theory est made in the USA', Lawrence R. Schehr underlines the pitfalls on an uncritical, un-problematized re-appropriation of Queer Theory to national and cultural contexts other than its original one (North America). Queer Theory itself is predicated upon specific signifiers characteristic of the English-speaking context, that is the closet metaphor (which determines visibility in binary terms) and homophobia. Eager to challenge universalising North American queer thought, Schehr argues for Post-Queer Theory instead, a theory that would extend the problematique of Queer Theory to other national contexts while taking into account the specificities of other cultural environments.

Josh Pearson and Sarah Lozier, University of California Riverside

At the close of the twentieth century, the proliferation of networked digital technologies has led a number of critics to call into question the future of reading. However, in the last several years it has become increasingly clear that reading continues to be an important aspect of our cultural practice, even as it manifests itself in multiple forms. This panel invites papers that concern themselves with both the history and the future of reading. Paper submitted to this panel may address the following questions: How have reading practices changed over time in a given historical period? What kinds of reading practices are specific to print culture and/or networked digital culture and what practices span both?
