Autopsia Online Journal
contact email: 

Autopsia is an online, international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that provides a diverse forum for scholars and professionals to interrogate and challenge the intellectual and aesthetic dimensions of mass culture. Autopsia invites critical and/or theoretical examinations that further our understanding of the serial consumption and the circulation of ideas, images and objects that flow from numerous centers, margins and multiplicities of production from the Industrial Revolution to the present. The journal welcomes submissions for publication that perform autopsies on a broad range of media: film, literature, art, and philosophy with a particular emphasis on how these cultural productions function as commodities.

In a multicultural and multilingual context, immigration has been an integral part of the national identity of Canada.
Modern Canada constitutes of a large percentage of Diasporic population who contribute extensively to the making of Modern Canada. In the wake of globalization, the evolution of Canada as a Multicultural State has been receiving much attention from mass media. This again has been a contested terrain since the settlement of a chosen race in a promised land has resulted into the subjugation of the Peoples who have been residing in the geo-political entity which came later to be known as Canada.

Final Reminder CFP (30/10): Forgotten Bodies PG Conference, 9th Jan 2010

Forgotten Bodies will provide a forum in which postgraduate researchers can explore often overlooked discourses, representations and practices relating to embodiment, sexuality and gender. Previous research into this field has often urged overly simplistic hegemonic models of practices, desires and identities, which this conference hopes to reassess. Our main objective is to explore the challenges of not only researching, including but also re-positioning so-called 'forgotten bodies' in academic programmes.

"That Which Moves: The Kinetic Nature of Language and Literature"  

January 29th, 2010 ● 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement.
