full name / name of organization:

On November 16, 2012, Hostess announced that, rather than cave to striking bakers’ demands, they were closing their doors for good.

full name / name of organization:

contact email:

Immigration and migration call into question the boundaries of American literature.

This panel invites papers that concern themselves with transnational American literature.

Studies of celebrity, fame, notoriety, and stardom have become increasingly complex and important in our media saturated society. Beginning with studies of fame--which focused on a wide variety of figures that operated in the public sphere, including politicians, religious figures, and military heroes--and studies of stardom--which interrogated stars like Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Diahann Carroll and Lucille Ball as symbols of societal fears, prejudices, and desires--the field of celebrity studies has continued to evolve, accommodating the changes in media and the relationship between the individual and the public sphere in the 21st century.

In the spirit of the (dis)junctions theme of encounters which "stress[es] a sense of unanticipated or oppositional" as it interacts with the traditionally endorsed, this panel seeks to address ways in which these "meetings" of traditional and contemporary artistic expressions of "blackness" have changed since 9/11 as it relates, comments, critiques, and augments on the traditionally endorsed definitions of artistic expression.
