CFP (SCMS 2020) Screening Ourselves: Mediation, Exemplars of Difference, and Cultural Transformation

Digital media proliferates, in part, because it allows individuals to adopt, inhabit, revise, and project their ways of being. Liking, saving, and sharing digital objects shapes our personal and social lives, and has transformed what it means to see and be seen, to garner and wield cultural influence. By self-reflexively mediating ourselves in cultural artifacts, what political claims are we adopting about how the world is, or should be? Which lives are screenable, or screened?

Looking for panelists for the Association of Asian Studies (AAS) annual conference in Boston, March 19-22, 2020. Below is the panel description:

This panel seeks to explore the intersections between religion and technology in Asian cultures and societies. Taking a broad view of religion, as lived and performative, the aim of this panel is to show how the theological, the technological and the anthropological intermingle to the point of indistinguishability in Asian cultures. The goal is to go beyond an instrumentalist approach wherein technology is enlisted into the service of religion and religious belief. I seek papers related (but not limited) to the following:

1) de/post colonial approach to religion, technology, secularism

In June 2019, Stonewall 50 marked the largest LGBTQ+ event in history. Half a century ago, after the NYPD raids on the Stonewall Inn, a resistance movement that had loudly proclaimed ‘Gay Pride’ was born. The year before, James Brown had urged African Americans to “say it loud, I’m black and I’m proud.” Ever since, activists and scholars in these movements have welcomed the community-building that social formations rooted in pride have fostered, while, at the same time, backlash against the increased visibility of such disenfranchised groups has appropriated this terminology as well, for instance in the supremacist slogans ‘white pride’ or ‘straight pride.’
