We invite participants to discuss how attitudes about race influence and challenge the classroom environment in American universities. Questions to consider: How does the current post-racial discourse influence discussions of race in historical and contemporary contexts? What pedagogical strategies have been successful? What has not worked? In what ways do both students and instructors contextualize race within the classroom and in the larger university setting?

The nature of the so-called “neoliberal age” demands consideration. From its origins as a response to fascism, to its fringe status during the post-war boom, to its current embrace across the political spectrum, neoliberalism is much more than an eclectic call for free-market ideals by economists such as F.A. Hayek and Milton Friedman. Unprecedented levels of deregulation transform media content as well as its criticism. Popular culture, one can argue, frequently supports neoliberalism by disguising wealth inequality, conjuring illusions of colorblindness, distracting consumers via “greenwashing,” and more.

(Bio)politics, affects, and emotions in literature and performance since WWII

The conception of biopolitics and the constitution of biopolitical power have become increasingly important for the study of political science, especially in the wake of one of the biggest shifts in population in modern history. Inspired by the ground-breaking research of Michel Foucault and the consequent development of this problematic in a variety of theoretical schools, political scientists have started addressing rationalities of power that go beyond traditional sovereign-territorial logics. Indeed, political categories such as that of population are now treated as affective structures. Affects have entered the extended definition of the political, investigated both as unmeasurable forces and as discreet emotions.

Transmedia Storytelling: Questioning Canon in 21st-century Popular Culture Narratives (NeMLA 2017 Panel)

How does transmedia storytelling inform and influence contemporary understandings of the relationship between medium, auteur, canon, and fandom? Although clearly successful in connecting with audiences hungry for more stories set in these universes, transmedia continuations of films, television shows, and comic books illustrate how the marketing of auteurism obscures as much as clarifies complexities in authorship, collaborative production, different reading styles demanded of audiences across different media, and the relative importance of dynamics between intention vs. reception and narrative continuity vs. formal dissimilarity.
