The New Black and The New Negro: Generational Tensions between Blackness, Colorlessness, and Post-Black

MLA 2016 Special Session: The Counterpublics of Underground Comix

MLA / Margaret Galvan and Leah Misemer

When underground comix emerged in America in the 1970s, they were connected with the counter culture movement and rife with anti-establishment content. These comics participated in and addressed counterpublics, which queer theorist Michael Warner defines as "formed by their conflict with the norms and contexts of their cultural environment." Yet much of the scholarship of the underground comix movement has centered on straight white men located in San Francisco (e.g. R. Crumb, S. Clay Wilson).

Looking beyond the common meaning of "profane" this roundtable takes for its focus the theme of The 51st Annual Conference of the Western Literature Association, to be held in Big Sky, Montana. President Elect, Linda Karell, asks us to approach: "profane as that which is underrepresented, undervalued, censored, denied, shared in secret; unofficial and unsanctioned pleasures; profane as the necessary other side to sacred, as that which helps define sacred but undoes it, too; profane as in challenging rote and accepted ways of thinking about/defining/ celebrating the West, even though those ways might once have occupied the status of subversive.
