Seeking panelists or participants for ASLE panel/roundtable: “Nuclear Waste(lands)”

Decades after the fall of the Soviet Union and end of the arms race, the nuclear bomb and its attendant Cold War anxieties seem already deeply buried in the past. While the weapons themselves remain housed in storage facilities and silos across the globe, much of the cultural and even political thinking about nuclear weapons is outdated, malformed and covered, as it were, in rust. And yet the technologies remain relevant today, and recent world events have brought nuclear technologies back to the fore—the Fukushima Daiichi disaster, the Iran nuclear deal and even Donald Trump’s alleged remark, “If we have [nukes], why can’t we use them?”

Reading Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel series, The Sandman, is like racing through a condensed combined curriculum in the classic humanities and modern cultural studies. This panel explores The Sandman as a work of art and as a manifold vision into human life as viewed within a vast cultural and cosmologicial framework. All critical perspectives (including cultural studies, pedagogy, and interdisciplinary approaches) are welcome.

"Microzones": (Un)settling Culture in Caribbean and Latin American Texts

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel will examine how literary and visual expressions challenge and denounce epistemic violence in the Caribbean and Latin America. The scholar Nelly Richard identifies “microzones of agitation and commotion that unsettle the normative equilibrium of what is dictated by habit or convenience, and thereby creates disturbance in the semiotic organization of messages that produce and reproduce institutional consent”(1). This panel evokes the dialogue and study of the microzones in Caribbean and Latin American literature and art.

Rendering Subjectivity and Perspective in Visual Representations

Uncertainties, positionalities, and shifting interpretations often play an important part in our research, but standard graphical representations, which are frequently used in the Digital Humanities, seem to represent information objectively. Do charts, maps, graphs and other forms of representation hinder our discussions of experiential issues, or can we reinterpret this supposed objectivity to put tension on empiricism itself? Can we work to reimagine these traditional graphic representations through layer or distortion, or should we invent new forms for humanities work?

updated:

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel seeks to theorize the female Asian American body as a biopolitical site for either a patriarchal or maternal dialogue and to investigate these representations and the textual body in order to consider the following:

Are these representations vehicles through/by which postcolonial and diasporic trauma is articulated?


Are maternal bodies deleted from family histories?

Does the body represent a sexualized and feminized nation?

What are the haunted histories and locations of the Asian American experience in the literary field and in the American field of cultural production?


How does the narrator serve as a cultural translator?
