full name / name of organization: 
University of California, Riverside
contact email: 
disjunctions2013@gmail.com

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

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

Virtual Encounters-Video Games, a panel at (dis)junctions Graduate Conference, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE Feb 11

full name / name of organization: 
university of California, Riverside
contact email: 
disjunctions2013@gmail.com

Video games are a space in which encounters are enacted on many different levels. There are encounters within the game’s narrative space; encounters at the interface of player and narrative; and encounters within the external gaming space (think two-player games). These encounters can also be broken down into player-computer and player-player encounters. This panel invites papers that explore these different spaces of encounter in video games. How do these spaces disrupt normative discourses on sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, and social class? How do these encounters disrupt or challenge the player’s identity? What are some implications of network-mediated encounters in massively multiplayer online games? How might we rethink the structure of encounter between the gaming space and external “reality”?
