Disability studies has a problem with representation. Michael Bérubé locates the roots of this problem in two dominant trajectories of literary disability studies. The first trajectory largely pursues a logic of identification and revelation, a tactic for demonstrating the ubiquity of disabled characters and the overwhelmingly negative thematics attached to their peripheral bodyminds. The second trajectory depends on diagnosing characters as disabled that have not been explicitly designated as such.

Affect and emotion have long been staples of WPA scholarship, field stories, and lore. In fact, Diana George’s iconic collection, Kitchen Cooks, Plate Twirlers & Troubadours: Writing Program Administrators Tell Their Stories, includes several chapters dedicated to the emotional labor of WPAs, such as Mary Pinard’s “Surviving the Honeymoon: Bliss and Anxiety in a WPA’s First Year or Appreciating the Plate Twirler’s Art,” in which she discusses the isolation and pressure of a do-it-yourself approach, and Doug Hesse’s “The WPA as Father, Husband, Ex,” in which he discusses the roots and implications of his perpetual feeling of provisional access and his need to be a prover and a provider, all rooted in his working class background (47).

This panel seeks papers that discuss the historical and cultural relationships between queerness/transness and ideas of safe spaces. Focal points may include, but are not limited to, college campus, gayborhoods, and the queer/trans internet. Areas of particular interest encompass the effects of the “non-profit industrial complex” on LGBTQ understandings of their needs, intergenerational mentorship and the relationship of the “traumatized past” to the “safe future,” how race, class, and gender affect queer ideation of safeness, utopian impulses in striving for safe spaces, and the relationship of queer theory to the resurgence of identity politics.
