Networks of protest and dissent, actual and virtual, were understood to have become increasingly centreless and leaderless across the 1990s, and beyond. Even the nature of protest and dissent fell away from previous models, as aligned to pragmatic demands and manifestos, single issues and norms of controlled civil disobedience. Now the masses were understood not to assemble behind any one position, or rally to one slogan, but more to stand in a kind of collective negative correlation to the faltering status quo: a crowd of singularities.

In keeping with this year’s SAMLA theme of utopia and dystopia, this panel will investigate the ways in which work, class, and labor have been represented throughout these traditions in American literature and culture. From utopia texts from authors like Edward Bellamy and Ignatius Donnelly to dystopian films like The Hunger Games and Divergent, utopian and dystopian representations have had a lot to say about work, class, and labor. In this panel, the questions we are interested in posing in this session are these: how are utopias/dystopias important for thinking about social class and labor? What can these representations tell us about popular and theoretical understandings of social class and labor?

Muslims in America

This panel intends to examine the works of Muslim American poets, novelists, jazz musicians, punks, hip hop artists, mipsters, filmmakers, and visual artists. Muslims are woven into the American fabric, from the generations of Moorish slaves accompanying the conquistadors in the Southwest, enslaved West Africans such as those in the coastal Gullah communities, Arab laborers in the Midwest factories in the late 1800s, twentieth-century immigrants fueling the medical and technology sectors, to those currently displaced by wars and natural disasters. Papers are invited that explore the diverse compositions of Muslim American identities in literary and cultural texts.

Since the discovery of oil in the 1970s, Gulf Cooperation Countries (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman) have employed a large expatriate labor force, primarily from neighboring South Asian Countries of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Philippines.  Recent studies claim that nearly 50.4% of the total population of the Gulf Cooperation Countries are expatriates.  Such mass emigration has not only allowed for the rapid economic expansion of these Gulf countries, but at the same time they have produced a number of cultural and socio-economic consequences for the countries from where Gulf’s primary work forces originate.

I am interested in collecting essays that explore religious belief and practice in contemporary young adult fiction (written after 2001).  There are several questions that each chapter will address:  How are the religious experiences of teenagers expressed in contemporary young adult literature?  What is the relationship between the characters’ religious beliefs/values and their interactions with parents, their friends, their schools, and their societies (real and fantastic)?  How do young adult authors use religious texts, traditions, and beliefs to add layers of meaning to their characters, settings, and plots?  How does contemporary young adult literature place itself into the larger conversation regarding the postsecular?
