We are pleased to invite contributions to an edited volume that analyzes sexual taboo in contemporary popular culture, with an eye toward theorizing taboo sexual practices using frameworks that reveal the uncomfortable or silenced spaces that surround non-normative sexual desire. We seek chapters that focus on how different cultural products normalize the taboo, bringing deviant behavior into mainstream spaces that challenge the traditional relegation of non-normative behavior to fringe spaces. We invite readings of literary, film, interactive and fan-created works that reveal positive representations of taboo, opening our readers to a sympathetic experience of deviancy and socially proscribed behavior.

In The Legacy of the Great War: Ninety Years On (2009), Jay Winter identifies four generations of critics, historians, novelists, and other cultural producers that engage with the representation of the First World War: “the Great War generation,” who had first-hand experience of the First World War; “the generation ‘fifty years on’,” writing in the 1950s and ‘60s; the “Vietnam generation,” working primarily in the 1970s; and the “transnational generation,” which broadly encompasses the more contemporary representations of the Great War. Winter adds that “everyone writing today draws upon or reflects upon earlier publications in this field,” speaking to the importance of intertextual and cross-generational analyses of the war.

The Optics of Excess: How the Body Knows

Scholars across the humanities have embraced affect theory as a productive avenue for examining aesthetic expressions of feeling, especially those that unfold outside of or beyond representation. In doing so, many have worked to distinguish “affect” from “emotion”: Brian Massumi privileges the former as uniquely able to account for that which escapes “performed action and ascribed meaning.” This conference, however, seeks to investigate affect’s alternate and often neglected theoretical counterparts: feeling and emotion.

Southeast Asia is the most densely populated region in the world, where neighboring states are political and economic heavyweights, leading players in a globalized world, and small countries that retain their distinctive appearance and style. It is a cauldron of ethnic groups, religions, worldviews, which has given rise to many alternative ways of integrating traditions and modernity.

In particular, Asian media, especially electronic ones, and social networks such as Chinese Weibo, WeiChat, Tencent and Qzone, South Korean Naver, and Japanese Line can serve as an example of such integration.
