•political repression and persecution: totalitarianism, autocracy, dictatorship, despotism
•representations of post-millennial watersheds (9/11, Enron, John Jay Report, crisis of 2008)
•new forms of narrative expression (blogs, fan fiction, Twiterature)
•text as an interactive space: ergodic literature, hypertext, cybertext
•video games and virtual worlds as spaces of expression and repression
•cross- and trans-media dialogues (expressing image through text and text through image)
