What contemporary uses can we make of Dada methods, techniques, innovations, and ideas? Should Dada inform our politics? Can it help to break us out of the postmodern ever-same, or is it the already-been-done, as Peter Bürger'€™s Theory of the Avant-Garde might suggest? Where is the Dada apparatus today?

Hope and Change: The Representation of Barack Obama (ASA 2013, Abstracts due January 18th, 2013)

Cameron Leader-Picone

This panel will focus on Barack Obama as a symbolic figure related to the idea of indebtedness. The logic of debt undergirds the idea that Obama's election signals a transition into a "post-racial" era. This framework suggests that the election of Obama signals a full restoration of democratic values, an absolution for the sins of slavery and Jim Crow, and signals a decisive push towards a new era. In contrast, since his election, Obama has been critiqued for failing to demonstrate his indebtedness to communities of color. African American leaders have specifically critiqued the president for his failure to act on issues of particular interest to the black community.

Virtual Wildernesses: Ecocritical Explorations of Wildness in Gameworlds

Despite the rapid increase in the popularity of gaming in the last decade, there has been little ecocritical consideration of how virtual worlds fit into the ecosystem that supports our increasingly hybridized experience of reality. Thus, the intent of this collection is to (re)consider the virtual spaces of gameworlds as a new kind of wilderness and players as a new kind of explorer.
