The turn of the millennium brought an explosion of YA sales with the most notable Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, and Divergent series.

In the Holzwege version of “Der Spruch des Anaximander,” Martin Heidegger advances the need to translate oneself prior to undertaking any translation of early Greek thinking (303). At the level of perception Nietzsche locates foundational moments of translation (Übertragungen) at each stage of the movement from stimulation to concept-formation (Über Wahrheit und Lüge §1: 312-17).

For the SAMLA 88 Conference, held in Jacksonville, Fl from Nov 4-6, we are seeking abstracts exploring gender-identity issues as expressed through digital mediums, with special emphasis on transgender identity (although any abstract addressing gender identity and digital culture will be considered) for a panel to be held during the conference. Any methodological approach will be considered.
