The nature of the so-called “neoliberal age” demands consideration. From its origins as a response to fascism, to its fringe status during the post-war boom, to its current embrace across the political spectrum, neoliberalism is much more than an eclectic call for free-market ideals by economists such as F.A. Hayek and Milton Friedman. Unprecedented levels of deregulation transform media content as well as its criticism. Popular culture, one can argue, frequently supports neoliberalism by disguising wealth inequality, conjuring illusions of colorblindness, distracting consumers via “greenwashing,” and more.

(Bio)politics, affects, and emotions in literature and performance since WWII

The conception of biopolitics and the constitution of biopolitical power have become increasingly important for the study of political science, especially in the wake of one of the biggest shifts in population in modern history. Inspired by the ground-breaking research of Michel Foucault and the consequent development of this problematic in a variety of theoretical schools, political scientists have started addressing rationalities of power that go beyond traditional sovereign-territorial logics. Indeed, political categories such as that of population are now treated as affective structures. Affects have entered the extended definition of the political, investigated both as unmeasurable forces and as discreet emotions.

Transmedia Storytelling: Questioning Canon in 21st-century Popular Culture Narratives (NeMLA 2017 Panel)

How does transmedia storytelling inform and influence contemporary understandings of the relationship between medium, auteur, canon, and fandom? Although clearly successful in connecting with audiences hungry for more stories set in these universes, transmedia continuations of films, television shows, and comic books illustrate how the marketing of auteurism obscures as much as clarifies complexities in authorship, collaborative production, different reading styles demanded of audiences across different media, and the relative importance of dynamics between intention vs. reception and narrative continuity vs. formal dissimilarity.

In what ways can superpowers be read as disabilities, or disabilities as superpowers? For example, The Avengers hinges on Tony Stark’s ability to recruit Bruce Banner, the Hulk, by acknowledging how they both share the “privilege” of what are interpreted as disabilities: Stark’s heart injury that led him to develop the Arc Reactor powering the Iron Man robotic suit, and Banner’s condition as the Hulk, which by height, weight, mentality, and emotions can compromise his involvement in the world but can also make him a superhero.

In light of continued violence upon Black and Brown bodies, I am concerned about the physical, emotional, and psychological toll such attacks will have on the collective Black male conscience. In an attempt to soothe a friend's pain I mentioned that survival is part of the Black man's experience in America. We have seen them bounce back higher and stronger throughout the course of history. Many of these historical episodes have however left them absent from the collective. Martyrdom is frequent in Black history, but all men of color cannot be sacrificed so that the collective can enjoy American life. It is also obvious that they must do more than just survive, they must be allowed to thrive and soar.
