Jeff Aziz, University of Pittsburgh

This panel invites papers that engage with narratives that problematize the dominant American narrative of migration into the "savage" West. For instance, In Jim Jarmusch's 1995 film Dead Man, the Native American Xebeche is captured and shipped east by railroad caged as an animal in a sort of counter-migration, even as European settlers travel west into the territories from which his relatives are being displaced. Of particular interest are papers that explore the relationship between suffering, objectified, or commodified bodies and American landscape.
