While the Covid pandemic left many feeling isolated, from tragedy has emerged a new surge in modes of fan interaction and fan fiction that further challenge who, what, and how “canon” is determined in fictional worlds that have long since been closed by the authors and script writers.

This proposed "Just-in-time" session at the 2022 MLA Convention in Washington, DC (January 6-9) seeks to situate recent amplifications in anti-Asian violence and rhetoric (as well as the resistance to name them as such) within the context of Asian American literary and cultural production. As the theme of the MLA convention is Multilingualism, this session invites papers on Asian American texts, media and experience that privilege embodied affect or memory as language itself.

CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTER PROPOSALS

We’re seeking chapter-length contributions to an edited volume on politics and the Western. The working title for this project is A Fistful of Politics: The Western and Political Thought. We’re anticipating that much of our collection will deal with Western films, but we’re open to—and excited about—contributions that discuss anything within the Western genre (prose fiction, films, television series, comics, poetry, video games, theater, music, etc.) in connection with politics and political thought.

This panel seeks original contributions to the study of the Italian Spaghetti Western, its filmmakers, and their production through perspectives such as Feminist theory, Men’s Studies and Queer Studies, (De-)Coloniality, and Auteur Theory. Politics, the Mexican Revolution, the invention of an American Civilization through the experience of the Wilderness, and Western Symbolism are lenses that can be applied to the analysis. Original approaches that emerge from a specific ideology and/or iconography are also welcome. Particular attention will be given to those papers that examine how the Italian Spaghetti Western satirizes both American and Italian cultures through the representation of a world destabilized by violence and death.

Over the course of the 20th century and into the 21st, cinema, television, and related media have become increasingly central both to individual lives and to the lives of peoples, groups, and nations. Cinema has become a major form of cultural expression and films both reflect and influence the attitudes and behaviour of people, representing their tensions and anxieties, hopes and desires and incarnating social and cultural determinants of the era in which they were made.

This essay popularised the terms secondary world, subcreation and subcreator in specialist criticism.

CFP: 2022 NeMLA Conference Panel: "Trans Visibility In A Time of Public Transphobia" March 10-13

updated: 
Wednesday, September 8, 2021 - 11:56am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Laverne Cox’s debut role in Orange Is The New Black seemed to usher in a new era for trans representation. In 2014, TIME decreed that the “Trans Tipping Point” had arrived and heralded a path to trans acceptance through visibility on the screen. Yet this increase in visibility has not formed an antidote to rampant transphobia. In 2021, thirty-three states have introduced 117 bills to limit and curtail the rights of trans people across the United States. Public incidents of transphobia are on the rise. In this panel, we consider the effects of hypervisibility in a time of public transphobia across media, and critically consider what the task of representation entails.

It also marks the 25th anniversary of the publication of Killing Floor (1997), which introduced the inimitable Jack Reacher, whose fight for justice, on behalf of the vulnerable and oppressed, has become a series hallmark.

Friday, October 1, 2021

Over the past decade, the media ecology has been dramatically shifting with the advent of online “over-the-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.

Visual Representation of Transgender Bodies in Film and Television

This panel will explore the varying visual representation of transgender people in film and television. Peter Lehman’s Running Scared: Masculinity and the Representation of the Male Body explains the visual shame of the male body and could also begin to understand the complexity of the transgender body. Lehman describes it as “men have managed to keep out of the glare, escaping from the relentlessness activity of sexual definitions” (6).  Newer shows like Sense8 and films like Hedwig and the Angry InchA Fantastic Woman, and The Danish Girl allow for characters that have visually and complex personalities along with their visual body. They explore trans struggles in storylines that do not end with death.

There are multiple reasons behind the recent eruption of female directors within the documentary field, such as the fact that it is a field in which major resources or connections aren’t needed in order to succeed. However, the thriving of women documentary filmmakers may also respond to reasons of a more formal nature. As feminist film theorists have argued, driven by its lack of faith in the visual archive, the female gaze tends to push traditional image and narrative boundaries in order to open up the door to memories, experiences, and forms of cultural knowledge encoded in senses other than (and questioning of) the visual and/or auditory.

Suicide and Popular Culture

According to the World Health Organization, more than 700,000 people die by suicide every year; one in 100 global deaths is by suicide. In the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 45,000 deaths by suicide (14.2 per 100,000) for the year 2020, representing a 30 percent increase over a 20-year period. Suicide is the eleventh leading cause of death in the U.S., and among persons between the ages of 10 to 34, it is the second leading cause. Women are more likely than men to attempt suicide, but men are three to four times more likely than women to die by suicide. In short, suicide is an intractable public and global health issue that has shown few signs of abating.

Locations and Landscapes in Weird and Horror Fiction

Thursday, September 30, 2021

Landscapes, scenery, architecture, and locations are integral to the study of horror in fiction-- and yet, one might point out that they rarely recieve as much emphasis or attention as monsters that live within them. This panel is for these forgotten landscapes of horror and "weird" fiction--a place to observe and recognize the importance or triteness of the haunted house trope, the mysterious ineffability of Lovecraftian underwater temples, or the aged spirituality of Dracula's castle. This panel seeks to turn the paradigm of antagonist-focused readings of texts on its head, and start understanding place and location itself as a tangible and critical piece in the inculcation of horror.
