Trajectories of Global CapitalismFrom Cultural Economy to Creative Industries

What cultural objects and phenomena are designated to be ugly, bad, unacceptable, and monstrous, especially in relation to gender, sexuality, disability, race, class, and caste? Whose histories are marginalized or overlooked because of their perceived bad taste, abject existence, and the taint they leave on supposedly beautiful, grand narratives of nationhood, well-being, or progress? How do kitsch, camp, and excess function in the realms of activism in contemporary politics? How do nasty, revulsive art, literature, and performances act as sites that engender questions that push boundaries of societal mores and cultural hierarchies?

Femspec is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed feminist journal dedicated to science fiction, fantasy, magical realism, surrealism, myth, folklore, and other supernatural genres.

Since the fin de siècle, the ubiquity of the camera has disrupted notions of gazing at others and ourselves. Moving from the 20th century to the 21st, the camera’s gaze has taken on many overlapping and at times antagonistic roles: it archives, captures, testifies, interrogates, interrupts, imagines, distorts, exposes, imposes, and surveils.

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).
The Esotericism, Occultism, and Magic Area of the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association invites paper proposals for a special panel addressing intersections of witchcraft and sexuality in practice and representation through tradition and cultural media, to be held in the forthcoming annual conference this February 21-24 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
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.
The Area for Esotericism, Occultism, and Magic at the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association invites presentation proposals for this special panel addressing the relationship of esotericism, occultism, and magic to art, particularly in the context of art history. A brief panel description is below, but any related proposals will be considered. Even if your proposal is not selected for this special panel, the Area welcomes any proposals relating to esotericism, occultism, magic, and associated areas of culture. For further details or to inquire about sending an abstract for this special panel, please contact the Area Chair, Dr.
