Queer Media and the Digital

Digital technology has altered all aspects of media cultures, including questions of identity that can affect everything from the production of texts, their content, their distribution, their reception, and more. At the same time, popular and academic understandings of queerness have evolved to incorporate expanding ideas of gender, sexuality, race, disability, ethnicity, and other identity categories. Not only has digital technology altered the ways in which queerness can be articulated, but queer media has also shaped the form and reception of digital texts. Understanding queerness in the digital age requires us to account for the changes in both queer studies and digital studies.

Desegregating Comics: Debating Blackness in Early American Comics, 1900-1960

Contributions are invited for a collection of original essays that explore race and blackness in American comic books, comic strips, and editorial cartoons from the turn of the twentieth century through the industry’s Golden Age in the 1940s and 1950s. The historical perception of black people in comic art has long been tied to caricatured images of indecipherable minstrels, witch doctors, and brutal savages, yet archives reveal a more racially complex narrative and aesthetic landscape, one that was enriched by the debates among comics artists, writers, editors, and readers about how blackness could be expressed on the page.

Videogames have grown into a global socio-cultural phenomenon and are now a primary concern of Literary and Cultural Studies as well as the Social Sciences. In a medium that sweeps across geographies (including virtual ones), however, the discourse usually privileges a certain section  when it comes to the representation of identity. In a medium, where roleplaying and playing in character is of prime importance, such an ignoring of the marginal and the diverse is indeed problematic.

Participants are encouraged to consider the MCU both as a whole as well as specific franchises under the overall banner.  

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 5-8th, 2020 in Boston, MA

No one escapes Marvel’s Endgame: the economic and cultural impact of the past few decades’ boom in superhero movies, and more broadly superhero narratives, is evident well beyond the boundaries of the United States. In fact, the presence and influence of American comic-book superheroes abroad started shortly after the debut of DC's Superman in 1938, and has been growing ever since.
