Despite persistent conceptions of the American South as pastoral, Modern and Postmodern Southern literatures have just as persistently grappled with the significance of modernity, consumerism, and technology. David A. Davis demonstrates how Southern modernism emerged from the disruptions that modernity introduced into the region by World War I. Rapid technological change can transform our connections to our own bodies and to others; and these transformations have profoundly animated Southern literatures.

Editor:Sylvia M DeSantis

This roundtable will examine adaptations of Western canonical works by South Asian novelists, poets, filmmakers, and essayists. We want to keep the focus of this session as wide and as open as possible. Our suggested approach for your presentations is to isolate a single passage, character, or chapter and explore similarities and differences between your target of study and the original Western “version.” Ideally, roundtable participants will share precise texts or film clips with the attending audience and fellow roundtable members.
Thematic areas of interest:
· social structure
· social change
· post-colonial themes

With the increased cost of textbooks and a market that can never quite meet the individual needs of a given campus community, many universities are encouraging the use or development of open educational resources as a means of increasing access and promoting equity and inclusion across the curriculum. These materials are either in the public domain or licensed by their creators to be repurposed by other users, and more and more universities are beginning to incentivize their faculty to create such resources for their courses, whether they be a collection and adaptation of already existing materials or the creation of a wholly original text.
This panel is interested in critiques of narratives and representations of spaces and technologies of care, including the medicalization of homes, disabling spaces in the home, examinations of how bodied and disembodied artificial intelligence may change geographies of care, deterritorialization of long-term care facilities, the cosmopolitanized spaces of care in hotels, the gendered and racialized politics of service industries, and the promotion or promise of care through mediated forms of print and digital technologies.

From the very first traces of written poetry, poets have been inspired by their peers: whether with elegies, odes or allusions to the poets they admired, they have always incorporated figures of poets and other poetic texts in their own poems. Intertextuality abound from the classical texts (quotations, sources and models) by earlier poets, for instance Ovid, Virgil or Cato. Some of their contemporaries, like Tacitus, have questioned the ideologies of their predecessors. Closer to us, Milton in his 16-line “On Shakespeare” (1630) argues that no monument is a suitable tribute to Shakespeare’s oeuvre; Thomas Gray pays himself homage to Milton in “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard” (1751).

Over the past decade, the media ecology has been dramatically shifting with the advent of online “overthe-top” streaming services, the streaming wars that followed, and the platformization of the web. As the distance between big tech companies and legacy media players rapidly dwindles, rippling effects can be felt across industries, audience practices, regulatory frameworks, and more. Simultaneously, the rise of streaming services also continues to provoke further theorizations on topics that have concerned media scholars for decades regarding the asymmetrical dynamics of power and influence as it relates to globalization processes, representation, identity, politics, cultural and national mediations, and economic development.

For a Book of Essays on Forgotten Disney
Since Walt Disney released the first animated talking short Steamboat Willie in 1928, the Disney name has been associated with many classics of film and television. Recognized worldwide, these works and their characters have received extensive popular and critical attention and overshadowed other interesting but less significant offerings in Disney’s prolific oeuvre. This
In Sensory Experiments (2020), Erica Fretwell argues that “literature is a sensitizing mechanism, not merely a representation but an amplification of experience,” positing literature as “a technology […] that has the potential to reproduce—not copy but produce more—feeling and […] to create more connections to the world by registering more differences in it” (28-29). Fretwell makes that claim in the context of her transatlantic study of the relations between American literature and the failed science of psychophysics as it developed in Germany at the end of the nineteenth century.
In Song of the Shank, Jeff Allen explores his characters’ sense of “placelessness...empty distance...like retracted thoughts, half-told secrets.” What defines a writer’s underlying map of “urban space?” Urbanity as a focus offers history, but how do cities’ secret histories, deep ecologies, and furtive sounds offer a shape to urban narrative? What memory resides in cities’ erased/lingering boundaries, vacant lots, and disintegrating concrete? This roundtable explores how writers and other artists have utilized particular cities’ cores, edges, and points of transit as means to rethink the shape, shift, and stasis of urban space. We welcome papers on the full range of literary forms, but also welcome examinations of visual and sonic expression

The Fractured States of America
Comics studies has been an established field long enough now to have consistent theoretical touchstones: Scott McCloud, Thierry Groensteen, and a handful of others. But much contemporary work on comics continues to rely on the same theoretical frameworks, returning to Understanding Comics over and over again. This session invites panelists to speculate on new directions for formal comics theory, leaving behind individual texts and close readings to ask for innovations our theories of comics as a medium. Of course, because of the abbreviated nature of conference papers, it will be impossible to put forward a fully-formed, all-encompassing new theory.
