Whether it is some sort of histrionic hyperbole or an actual description of our current state of affairs, it’s not a novel assertion to say that the West seems to be on the verge of collapse. If this is the case, the time and esotericism that psychoanalysis requires seems, yet again, to position it entirely on the axis of outdated luxury rather than sophisticated, trenchant, or even useful political analysis.

Fashion studies’ move toward non-Western, non-traditional modes of exploring sartorial history (cf. The Fashion History Reader: Global Perspectives, Riello and McNeil, 2010) and the rise of critical luxury studies (cf. Luxury. A Rich History, Riello and McNeil, 2016; Critical Luxury Studies. Art, Media, Design, Armitage and Roberts, eds., 2016) indicates a renewed interest in the ways that objects interact with the body and vice versa. Scholars have begun to study how luxury and fashion objects interact with consumers, designers, and manufacturers in a new light, focusing, for example, on non-hegemonic fashion makers and consumers.

RuPaul’s Drag Race has steadily increased its audience share and jumpstarted the careers of dozens of drag performers. It’s not simply a contest to be declared “America’s Next Drag Superstar,” but a platform for each queen to shape their brand, promote different forms drag, and start conversations on a number of cultural questions (i.e. gender, race, and identity). This panel seeks paper that considers how the show has educated audiences on drag, beauty, race, and gender through its successes and failures.

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 21-24th, 2019 in Washington, D.C.

Submissions are due: September 30, 2018

Approaches to Teaching Fake News: When Technology Acts Faster than Journalism

The rise of the internet has certainly led to a proliferation of false news stories and social media posts/pages. Fake news's profile has only risen as more organizations describe legitimate news sources as false when they don't like what is being said, leading to further confusion for students regarding who to believe. This roundtable looks at how to effectively educate first-year students on credible research methods, such as how to vet web sources and disseminate biased news reporting. The priority should be on recent examples to provide a practical context on the subject.

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 21-24th, 2019 in Washington, D.C.
