In season one of the television series The Wire, there are obvious hierarchical connections that create power relations where basic rules of discipline stem from chain-of-command in both the police force and the Barksdale crime syndicate. In these organizations, the superior characters out-rank the inferior ones and their presence as kingpin or Major allows simple control over the lower-ranked officials. The low-rises function in a similar way, but with the added element of a panoptic structure that makes their situation interesting and complex. Jeremy Bentham invented the concept of a Panopticon in the 18th century, which deals with how a particular structure can aid in various disciplinary functions.

1. Home and Toni Morrison's Works
In all of her fiction, Morrison examines how the feeling of belonging and a sense of an identity have been put in jeopardy by the perils of history. Her fiction also explores how social, cultural, and political changes produce for individuals a sense of dispossession from their homes. Morrison herself has defined components of home as memory and ancestry as well as citizenship and belonging. We are pleased to accept papers for this panel that conceptualize and/or theorize representations of home; home and identity; home and repressed memory/trauma; and home and nostalgia.
