Today, the internet serves as a watering hole for many LGBT individuals, whether as a place to go to meet, learn, organize, converse, plan, debate, or play. According to a 2013 study by the Gay, Lesbian, & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), LGBT youth are five times more likely than non-LGBT youth to search online for information on sexuality or sexual attraction, almost twice as likely to search for medical information online than non-LGBT peers, and report high levels of online civic engagement. 1 in 4 LGBT youth report being “more out” online than offline, 1 in 10 LGBT youth report first coming out online, and about 52% of LGBT youth who weren’t out offline had used the Internet to connect to other LGBT users (GLSEN).

The notion of “community” sometimes centers unquestioningly on whatever it is shared by a given group of people without pausing to study the emergence of the uncommon, the disparate or the disjointed among its members. Thus, certain practices underlying distinctiveness, differentiation, and separation are manifested in ways that may become as equally meaningful to them as their common cultural, political, religious, material, and any other structures, values, and characteristics representing them and their community.

This panel investigates early modern coping strategies that engage both possibility and temporality. Specifically, how do early modern texts model alternative temporalities that evoke revised histories, alternative presents, or potential futures? How might intertextuality, grammatical structures, wordplay, and visual or other paratextual elements signal possibility? And how might alternative temporalities revise early modern subjectivity?

Topics of interest might include:

 Terrorism in Literature: On Examining a Global Phenomenon

A monographic volume on Terrorism

 

Mahmud Darwich claims: “Nothing, nothing justifies terrorism”. Terrorism, like a virus, is spreading to the whole world. It does not advocate any ideology; it rather involves psychopathological personalities.

Papers are invited to investigate and discuss terrorism in literary texts from different perspectives. What is this phenomenon? Why? What for? For/by Whom? What are its social, political and cultural drawbacks? What happened to humanity? How to stop this plague?
