Films do not exist in a vaccum: they are almost always conceived produced, distributed and consumed within specific economic and social contexts.Film is now an integral part of our culture. What is it about films that attract us so much? Why do we enjoy films so much? Why indeed should we study films? It is not only fascinating to look at how films are made or even constructed but how they affect us is also a seminal question.

This graduate student conference seeks to analyze the emergence of new forms of antipolitics over the last several decades.

Posthuman Drag (Edited Collection)

Is drag separable from gender? A preponderance of self-described "drag things" (versus drag kings and queens) specializing in performances of non-human entities and appearing everywhere from stages in local gay bars to digital platforms like Instagram and YouTube would suggest so; however, when we speak of drag in academic literature, we hew closely to notions of drag as demonstrating gender performativity above all else. This collection therefore seeks to theorize a previously underrepresented form of drag performance that does not necessarily play with gender so much as it plays with humanness:We call this "posthuman drag."

From the moment the clock struck midnight (or so it seems) on January 1, a climate of uncertainty has loomed over the year 2020: a contentious presidential campaign, the mismanagement of a global pandemic, and widespread civil unrest over egregious acts of racial injustice have thrown the United States into a state of disarray. These incidents, the result of the outgoing administration’s efforts to disrupt and upend traditional governing institutions, have instilled unparalleled levels of uncertainty and distrust in the American public. Nowhere is this more obvious in contemporary American life than recently conducted surveys suggesting public confidence in a COVID-19 vaccine is well under the 70% threshold needed to achieve herd immunity.

We are a lively academic collective interested in investigating the articulation of the numerous and heterogeneous representations which have been constructing images of the US.

We’re also working to foster a stimulating space for early career researchers and postgraduate students in North American studies, thus we’ll warmly welcome their proposals as well.

“Drum Dream Girls and Northern Lights Kids: New Models of Constructing Childhood for Diverse Children” - ChLA Guaranteed Session for MLA 2022

In their chilling study “Listening to Black Women and Girls: Lived Experiences of Adultification Bias,” Jamilia J. Blake and Rebecca Epstein conclude “that adults perceive Black girls as less innocent than white girls as young as 5-9 years old.” While Blake and Epstein centralize Black girlhood, this adultification bias similarly affects Black boys and other children of color. Children of color’s perception as ‘more adult’ than their white peers does not imbue them with any agency or power, rather, it divests them of childhood, at least within childhood’s contemporary definitions. Yet, these contemporary definitions of childhood are grounded in whiteness and white privilege.
