The Ethics of Passing
   
  The concept of "passing" is not new to the American landscape. While racial/ethnic passing may be the most widely recognized form of passing, recent acceptance of queer and transgender studies reveals passing as more than a matter of skin color. The most general question, what are the ethics involved and undermined in participating in passing, opens the door to many other questions surrounding this issue. Does the actor always have control over her/his own ability to pass? What does it mean that someone can be passed without desiring such recognition? What kind of responsibility is involved in revealing ethnic, sexual, or gender "authenticity" if even the notion of the authentic has become problematic?

We are seeking a third participant for a special session that will be taking

pm, in Philadelphia. The title of the special session is "Postirony in
Theory and Fiction."

One of our participants is no longer able to take part in this panel, which
means we have an open slot that we'd like to fill. We're especially
interested in papers that discuss the concept of postirony in the essays
and fiction of David Foster Wallace. Papers on related topics are also
welcome.
