Stigmatised identities: Alternative Sexualities in/out of Normative Representations

 

The concept of ‘stigma’, including the many perspectives on stigmatised identities and processes of stigmatisation, is a crucial tool to focus on alternative sexualities and their representation. The issue has been addressed in numerous disciplinary fields, with studies attempting to understand stigma both generally in terms of social dynamics (Goffman 1963 and 1969; Becker 1963; Jones et al. 1984), and in its specific relation to sexuality (Herek 1998; Evans 2002).

We inhabit a moment of accelerated urbanization primarily driven by the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in urban planning and management, most ambitiously articulated in the promises of the ‘smart city’. The ubiquity of digital information infrastructures has reshaped the form, shape, and texture of cities. Contemporary urbanity has come to be defined by ICTs. As the social, experiential and physical spaces in the city are increasingly being experienced with and through data generated by networked digital devices, digital mediations exert profound impact on how urban spaces are being reconfigured, curated and navigated.

Abstract Deadline Extended: Special Issue on Yellowstone (2018) (Journal of Literary Studies)

Yellowstone (2018, Paramount Network), Taylor Sheridan’s neo-Western television series that premiered in 2018, has grown into a cultural phenomenon. Not only has the show itself been enormously popular (as measured by its ratings and fan following within the United States and South Africa, for example), but its characters, and the Dutton family that are central to the story, have since been incorporated into a shared story universe covering a period from 1881 to the present day. This story is centred around the fictional Yellowstone ranch in Montana, which is both the main setting and metaphorical heart of the show.

CFP - Unauthorized: Media Piracy, Digital Forgery and Generative AI

The specter of replicating – movement, physical reality, and life itself - has haunted cinema ever since Maxim Gorky stepped into the Lumières’ “Kingdom of Shadows.” Over a century later, digital copies and online piracy of media content raise questions of distribution, access, and emerging technologies’ impact on authorship, perpetuating the age of the unregulated reproduction. More recently, AI’s entry into creative production has made concerns over image duplication and fabrication as urgent as ever.

In July 2023, a tech startup called “Simulation Inc” released an AI technology that the company claims will make it possible to generate entire t.v. episodes—including dialogue, voice acting, animation, and editing—from nothing more than a two-sentence prompt. Somewhat oddly—and provoking suspicion that the project might be a hoax or internet prank—Simulation Inc’s website lists a fake address under their contact info: 500 Baudrillard Drive, San Francisco, CA.

Consent-Based Theatre Pedagogy: Anti-Oppressive Practices for Youth Performance

Consent-based performance practices have been widely discussed in recent years–specifically those practices related to the staging of intimacy in live performance and in film. While scholarship dedicated to the practices, theories, and politics of consent in theatrical and cinematic labor continues to accumulate, the use of consent-based practices in theatrical settings to impact the artistic and social-emotional learning of youth remains largely underexplored.
