[The deadline for proposals for this panel has been extended to September 25th.]

Game studies is quickly emerging as a popular, interdisciplinary field within the humanities and social sciences, yet medieval scholars are still only beginning to explore the relationship between recreational games and literature from a literary or cultural context. This session seeks to broaden this field of study by focusing on depictions of games and gaming in medieval literature and their relation to recreation in the Middle Ages.

The received wisdom tells us that the modernization of American culture and society was contingent upon its secularization. And yet, when we look to both canonical works of American modernism and to contributions to the "cultural front," we find an abiding concern for the religious that troubles this dominant narrative. This panel seeks to reexamine the multivalent modernist concern for the religious in order to reassess its place in early 20th century American literature and culture, to analyze the myth of the 'secular age,' and to determine the place of religion in the conflict between capital and labor.

This panel will examine representations of Asian American and Asian diasporic communities in new media such as blogs, internet forums, social network sites, video games, etc. How do these representations deal with the heterogeneity of the Asian diaspora? How do online spaces develop, interrupt, or redefine transnational spaces? What do these representations tell us about the future of Asian American and Asian diasporic studies?
