Gender is achieved through performances and interpretations associated to normative judgments of masculinity and femininity. Gendered imaginations and power relations are inscribed into space as structures and reproduced through spatial interaction, but gender is only one among numerous symbiotic categories of social differentiation and inequality such as ethnicity, class, sexuality, religion, etc. Different spaces present more or less great latitudes for reinterpretation, determination and conflict of all kinds of identity categories that can be interrelated or played out against each other.

deadline for submissions:

Papers invited for the joint (guaranteed) South Asian Literary Association-MLA panel exploring the incorporation of South Asian visual and literary traditions in the subcontinent’s comics. Inspired by the MLA 2019 theme of “textual transactions,” this panel explores the constitutive relations among South Asian graphic narratives and the region’s local, folk and national visual as well as literary cultures. This panel is interested in teasing out what makes South Asian graphic narratives' image-text interactions distinct from that of Western comics. What visual frames of reference do they rely on? How are image and text mutually constitutive in Indian graphic narratives?

Digital technologies, namely the “internet,” have catalyzed a dramatic shift in the production of space and how we conceive it. They are ambiguous at their borders, at once expanding yet shrinking notions of home and homeland, of the local and the global, and of the intangible and the material. Such fuzziness and shifting boundaries generate new spatial relations on multiple layers which we call “digital spatialities.”
