How does contemporary fiction of the Americas and Caribbean explore practices of healing? This panel considers all aspects of healing, including but not limited to religion, indigenous practices and rituals, the spiritual, and through community and the collective. How does their depiction in literature allow for generative further discussion about identity, culture, and tradition, and what does this mean in the 21st century?

Over the past decade, the media ecology has been dramatically shifting with the advent of online “overthe-top” streaming services, the streaming wars that followed, and the platformization of the web. As the distance between big tech companies and legacy media players rapidly dwindles, rippling effects can be felt across industries, audience practices, regulatory frameworks, and more. Simultaneously, the rise of streaming services also continues to provoke further theorizations on topics that have concerned media scholars for decades regarding the asymmetrical dynamics of power and influence as it relates to globalization processes, representation, identity, politics, cultural and national mediations, and economic development.

For a Book of Essays on Forgotten Disney

 

Since Walt Disney released the first animated talking short Steamboat Willie in 1928, the Disney name has been associated with many classics of film and television. Recognized worldwide, these works and their characters have received extensive popular and critical attention and overshadowed other interesting but less significant offerings in Disney’s prolific oeuvre.

It’s a statistic we hear often: America incarcerates more people per capita than any other nation. Yet, most Americans can go about their daily lives without thinking about their physical proximity to prisons or the people locked within. With few exceptions, prisons are built in rural, remote areas, set back from main highways and not visible from shopping centers, restaurants, and housing developments. Likewise, America’s political landscape works hard to obfuscate the realities of life locked up, reducing discourses of mass incarceration to shocking statistics and incomprehensible numbers.

Whether from health crisis, family isolation, or governmental-social prejudice, care has always been an invaluable resource in queer communities, whether physical, psychological, or spiritual. This care manifests not only in physical forms, such as providing food and medicine, shelter for queer homeless populations, and access to health care, but also in the ability to connect with new modes of family and to fight in the broader struggle for queer rights and liberation. However, this care can become disrupted due to biases present within the mainstream queer community, such against queer people of color, queer women and gender non-conforming people, and queer people with disabilities.

Dark academia is a recently emerging term of phrase describing not only an aesthetic within popular culture but also a type of genre involving an academic background, elements of the gothic, and the spectacular. Like the speculative supergenre, dark academia often borrows freely from other literary and cultural categorizations, in the way of crime fiction, classical Greek & British mythologies, artistic aesthetics, paranormalcy, romance, villainy, stoicism, and posthumanism. Oftentimes within dark academia, the Other represents a romanticized villain and/or monster with whom the reader and reviewer empathizes with. Through this romanticization, we often find that nostalgia for a colonial history takes centerstage.

Through the centuries, humans have often shaped their social life by fictional moments and by taking part in fictional events: carnivals, representations, role plays, society plays, structured and semi-structured collective and singular moments where strictly coded contexts organize specific worlds and cultural dimensions. Play, in its wide acception and in its nature of artificial and coded mechanism, reflects historically the symbolic work by which human societies have elaborated, explained and organized the world.
