As the interior of the body has become increasingly visible, viewers have learned to, in Lynda Birke's words, "read the text of the body's insides." Popular media have helped make this "text" legible to viewers but do so by normalizing medical images and a biomedical view of the interior body. This panel seeks papers that problematize popular narratives of the interior body. Can we interpret the interior body other than through a biomedical lens? How do writers and artists develop counternarratives that contest the biomedical view of the body?
Are we what we eat? One's relationship to food is closely intertwined with many aspects of one's identity including ethnicity, social class, and gender, among others. Our perception of food production, preparation and consumption practices tends to influence how we see the people who are implicated in those practices. This session will consider, through the lens of food, works created by French and Francophone authors. The session will encourage reflection on how those artists are able to address questions of identity, assimilation, marginalization, and agency using food imagery.

We are looking for proposals that address any aspect of the convergence of Popular Culture and American Childhood and Youth. This work may come from discipline as far-flung as media studies, education, literature, history, psychology, philosophy, film studies, gender studies, law, music, economics, sociology, and may reflect and equally broad range of methodologies.
