This is a call for proposals on cyberqueer strategies in contemporary art, film and media.

The importance given to spatial configuration in relation to technology in contemporary art and film scholarship points to the fact that cyberspace is no longer viewed as an intangible software entity or space outside our physical reality. Instead, it is understood as a pervasive presence imbedded within our DNA.  Many contemporary artists and filmmakers who have grown up with the Internet have labeled their artistic practice “post-Internet,” in order to articulate this cultural shift.

Social factors such as race, gender, and class influence relationships of power between individuals and groups, separating those with access to cultural, political, and financial resources from those without.  Functioning as overlapping lenses through which to examine cultural texts, they can be used as tools with which to condone or contest repression and domination in the daily lives of individuals.

The American Romance in 2016

his panel addresses the American romance in light of recent developments in early American studies. While many Britishists accepted the ascendancy of the anglophone novel, others challenged this teleology, and the transatlantic turn has invited us to consider whether the romance genre survived the New World. The existence of a colonial romance would challenge the “birth” of the American genre in the wake of Scott’s Ivanhoe (1819), and revising that literary history could in turn broaden American romance beyond a hoary pro-slavery ideology. Post-WWII critics arguing for an American romance tradition often cite Hawthorne’s own christening of his novels as “romances” as a key piece of evidence.

  Literature from the Antipodes has become increasingly influential. The New Zealand writers Janet Frame, Katherine Mansfield, Keri Hulme, Alan Duff; Australian writers Colleen McCullough, Joan Lindsay, and Miles Franklin are only a few of the prominent names. Significant antipodal literature has recently explored themes of colonial versus native cultures, nation building, indigenous culture and nature versus imposed Western vision of what should be.
