PAMLA 2016, Special Session

Institutional sponsor: California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

Session Chair: Stephanie Gibbons, Independent Scholar; Aaron DeRosa, Assistant Professor of 20th/21st C. American Literature, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

Session Title: Queering Terror

Abstract (50 words): If the post-9/11 moment associated terror with region and religion, how have events—Katrina and Ferguson, the Great Recession and Greek austerity, climate change and uprisings—mutated our understanding of the term? Can terror be a useful model for thinking through racialized and gendered violence, normalized extremism, and neoliberal policies?
