Voyeurism functions in fiction in many ways: as state surveillance, as individual stalking, and even, arguably, in the acts of reading and writing. This panel will consider voyeurism through voyeur-tinged original fiction and critical papers both on voyeuristic works of fiction and on the voyeurism of the reader/writer/character relationship.
A return to the feminisms of the 1970s is one of the most salient dimensions of feminist studies to emerge over the last decade. This proposed volume seeks essays that reflect on this return—evident not only in academia, but in emergent activist feminisms of the 21st century—and speculate on what it means for feminist scholarship, politics, and cultural production.
This interdisciplinary anthology invites work by scholars in fields such as Film Studies, Philosophy, Art History, Cultural Studies, Visual and Cultural Anthropology, Literary and Historical studies, Media Studies, Women’s Studies, and beyond.

Violent Feelings: Affective Intensities in Literature, Film and Culture
The multi-media possibilities of the web, the optic flexibility of digital books, the ability to record image and sound cheaply and share that material quickly and widely over a variety of platforms, have drastically undermined poets' dependence on the page and print-based forms of distribution. Something has changed in the manner we encounter poetry. To what extent, though, have these technological changes transformed the forms and functions of poetry as such? Have they finally produced the necessary conditions for truly 'verbi-voco-visual' work, a one-time dream of the modernist avant-garde? Have multimedia forms of poetry displaced more traditional forms and formats?
