Recent publications, such as Amy Villarejo's _Ethereal Queer: Television, Historicity, Desire_ (Duke, 2014) and Jason Mittell's _Complex Television: The Poetics of Contemporary Television Storytelling_ (MediaCommons Press, 2012-13), among others, herald a paradigm shift in television theory and historiography, one that deepens and expands the current critical language of TV studies. This panel seeks to pursue this shift in critical and theoretical approaches to television studies, inviting papers that situate television in broader questions of narrativity, historicity, critical theory, and continental philosophy.

Since its initial publication in 1974, the iconic role-playing game (RPG) Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) has spawned hundreds of other analog and digital RPGs, as well as an entirely new industry and subculture. In the last decade, scholars from across the disciplinary spectrum have explored the origins, characteristics, cultures, and player experiences of RPGs. Yet, little scholarly attention has been devoted to the meaningful ways RPGs have shaped and transformed society at large over the past forty years.

What are the literary legacies of Malcolm X's life and death? In 1965, after Malcolm X's life came to an end, The Autobiography of Malcolm X cemented his status as icon. Malcolm's death galvanized a nascent Black Arts Movement, inspiring the generation of black nationalist artists that Amiri Baraka termed 'Malcolm's sons and daughters.' This panel invites papers that engage with the enduring resonance of Malcolm X's life and death for literary and black studies.
