Beyond the Blockbusters: Themes and Trends in Contemporary Young Adult Literature
This panel hopes to investigate affect as that which disturbs the binary logic structuring contemporary discourses on collectivity. What happens when, rather than thinking of affect’s circulation as “mediating” between subjectivity and collectivity, we allow affect to unsettle this dyad? What does it mean for affect to render undecidable the relation between individual and collective, or to orient us towards a relation possessed of no advance guarantees? How does negative affect—for example, Sedgwick’s notion that shame throws the question of identity into relief—augment normative notions of self-possession towards new understandings of relationality?
In 2006’s Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide, Henry Jenkins defines “convergence culture” as “the flow of content across multiple media platforms, the cooperation between multiple media industries, and the migratory behavior of media audiences who will go almost anywhere in search of the kinds of entertainment experiences they want” (2). In contemporary culture, we are no longer merely passive consumers of media: we are participants in the narrative to the point where fans often actively influence outcomes and storylines well after a primary text has been released.

Cultural Studies and Media Studies / Interdisciplinary Humanities
Chair: Kenneth Sherwood (Indiana University of Pennsylvania)
The "Pedagogy and Poetry Audio" panel seeks to explore the implications of increased access to poetry audio which is provided by open, digital archives that allow the teaching of print texts alongside the phonotexts or recordings documenting situated, spoken-word performances. Contributions ranging from discussions of specific classroom practices (close-listening, creative remixing, etc.) to theorizations and contexualizations in terms of Ethnopoetics, Sound Studies, and Digital Humanities are welcome.
