This panel will examine representations of Asian American and Asian diasporic communities in new media such as blogs, internet forums, social network sites, video games, etc. How do these representations deal with the heterogeneity of the Asian diaspora? How do online spaces develop, interrupt, or redefine transnational spaces? What do these representations tell us about the future of Asian American and Asian diasporic studies? Please submit 250-500 word abstracts to Swan Kim at SwanKim@virginia.edu.

Proposals are now being accepted for a conference on Screen Representations of Nurses in Mass Media, to be held at UCLA on May 12, 2011. Proposals are sought that explore and interrogate the representations of nurses in film, television and digital media. While literature, film and televisual studies have examined representations of medicine more broadly, academic and popular literature has frequently eschewed critical analyses of nurses specifically within the hierarchies of institutional power and the politics of representation. Nurses as educated, skilled problem solvers and autonomous health professionals remain contested categories in media.
