This volume, which will be proposed to a leading independent academic publisher, seeks to explore the implications of crime writing in its narrative forms through essays that situate orientations fictional and non-fictional, past and present in relation to public perspectives. Just as real crime has served as inspiration for fictional accounts, Kieran Dolin reminds us in Fiction and the Law that crime literature has long influenced popular understanding of social institutions as well.

“TikTok as a Cultural Forum”
This panel seeks presentations on Gloria Anzaldúa’s legacy in contemporary theory and literature. It welcomes discussions of displacement, duality, limit and boundary transgression, border culture as well as Chicanx and Latinx identity and experience today. The goal of the panel is not just to discuss the now but also to keep constructing a bridge of border consciousness and mestizaje.
The body on the screen and the body of the screen have always formed a compelling and productive pairing. From apparatus theory to production and exhibition histories, these two conceptualizations of cinematic bodies remain valuable avenues for reflecting on the use of images, their visibility, materiality, and presentation. As cinema continues to fracture and expand across our cell phones and living spaces, the screen is increasingly tangible, mobile, and ubiquitous. Like the mobile toys and popular illusions preceding modern cinema, these forms of new media present particular bodies on particular screens.
Unreliable narrators are storytellers that the reader (or viewer) cannot trust. They most often occur in narratives that are written from a first-person point of view. Unreliable narrators deceive purposefully in some cases and unintentionally in others. As a result, the reader/viewer is left with the sense that something is “off.”

Jason Moore in his introduction to Anthropocene or Capitalocene? (2016) remarks, “Capitalocene signifies capitalism as a way of organizing nature’s a multispecies, situated, capitalist world-ecology.” Capitalocene, therefore, stands for a motion, a reproducing technology, that manifests and re-manifests human life and relationalities between human and nature under the logic of aggressive material dispossessions and accumulations. The examinations and resistance against the functioning of capitalocene are especially crucial in facing the public health crisis one would remember as the COVID-19 and the racial conflicts intertwine with its narrative with the perception of the pandemic.
“No Culture can live if it attempts to be exclusive.” - Mahatma Gandhi
‘Diversity is strength, not weakness,’is an idea rapidly fading away. There are several thousand cultures, and several hundred belief systems in the world. However, only a few communities with their socio-cultural, geographical, and racial positionsdominate, the rest exist in socio-cultural outskirts. The saying, ‘majority Wins’has dangerously become, ‘minority wears away.’ While, this tendency is flourishing at the cost of secularism and pluralism at a collective level, it is causing dehumanization, hate, and violence, at individual level. Covert racism, socio-cultural hegemony, nationalism, partisanism, are paving way for totalitarianism.

Remainder from Epistemology: Exploring the Discursive Possibilities of Aporia
Man has not been able to describe himself as a configuration in the episteme without thought at the same time discovering, both in itself and outside itself, at the borders yet also in its very warp and woof, an element of darkness, an apparently inert density in which it is embedded, an unthought which it contains entirely, yet in which it is also caught.
– Michel Foucault
