BAKEA 2019 6th INTERNATIONAL WESTERN CULTURAL AND LITERARY STUDIES SYMPOSIUM
deadline for submissions:

Cultural, geographical, political, social, emotional, linguistic, and economic borders, among others, define and determine different aspects of our identities, cultures, and social lives along with literatures and arts. In a world charmed by 'globalization', interdisciplinary studies in humanities and social sciences has thrown further lights on the definitions, conceptualizations, roles and functions of borders. They are understood not only in terms of limits, restrictions, and divisions but also in terms of opportunities, possibilities, and reconstructions.

In recent years, the media has abounded with stories of serial killers. Esquiremagazine notes that 2019 has been a particularly ‘bumper year for [Ted] Bundy’, but numerous other news stories have maintained our perennial fascination with serial murderers.[i]Indeed, the death of Charles Manson (2017), the 2018 arrest and subsequent identification of Joseph James DeAngelo (known as the ‘original night stalker’ and, latterly, the Golden State Killer), and multiple anniversaries, including the Tate-LaBianca murders (50th) and Ted Bundy’s death (30th), have all kept serial killers at the forefront of the public imagination.

In queer theory, few texts have spurred as much division and debate as Lee Edelman's 2004 polemic, No Future: Queer Theory and the Death Drive. This panel takes as its grounding premise one of this monograph's central arguments; namely, that queerness figures an irony that serves as a “corrosive force… [that] threatens, like a guillotine, to sever the genealogy that narrative syntax labors to affirm… [and] the continuity essential to the very logic of making [political] sense” (23-4). Upon its publication, Edelman's No Future drew reproach from queer theorists like Jack Halberstam, who sought to affirm queerness as a "form of negative knowing" (823) that projected a "bleak and angry" future politics (824).

This panel aims to explore the (re)emergence of a new wave of queer cinema that, over the course of the past two decades, has given rise to auteurs and narratives that consider the complexity of queerness through and beyond matters related to visibility and acceptance. Different theoretical frameworks are welcome, and relevant comparative studies among American, European, and/or non-Western cinema are strongly encouraged.
