Curation, Community, and Commodity: Media Collections and Playlists on screen and off.

This panel seeks to investigate a particular casualty of the move away from brick-and-morter storefronts as distributors of media objects towards online vending (and piracy): the staff picks shelf. Whether the media in question is music, video, comics, print, how does the taste community generated around the curation of the staff within the local and particular physical and commercial space of the shop compare to the disembodied, dispersed access model of online reviews and "Best of" lists? How does the locality, particularity, and face-to-faceness of encountering register differences in the relations between curator, media object, and auditor in these situations?

Science Fiction and the “Worldly”,, a panel at (dis)junctions Graduate Conference, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE Feb 11

disjunctions2013@gmail.com

In “Reflections on Exile”, Edward Said writes that theoretical interventions need to engage with the “worldly situation”, the messy, unstable mosaic through which the long history of colonialism affects a diverse set of political affiliations, global disparities, international divisions of labor, regional rivalries, national identities, cosmopolitan ideologies, green, queer, and leftist movements. Science fiction, likewise, has seen a recent surge in interest and scrutiny devoted to postcolonial and global problematics including works by Istvan Csicsery-Ronay Jr. (2003), John Reider (2008), and Patricia Kerslake (2011). This call for papers welcomes in submission interested in further exploring the role of the postcolonial and global in science fiction.

Histories and Futures of Reading, a panel at (dis)junctions Graduate Conference, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE Feb 11

At the close of the twentieth century, the proliferation of networked digital technologies has led a number of critics to call into question the future of reading. However, in the last several years it has become increasingly clear that reading continues to be an important aspect of our cultural practice, even as it manifests itself in multiple forms. This panel invites papers that concern themselves with both the history and the future of reading.

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

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”?
