American comics have a long and checkered history in the way they have portrayed racial difference, though more recent comics/graphic novels have used the medium to comment effectively on American racial politics. As the genre grows in popularity in bookstores and on college campuses, now seems an opportune time to take stock of the ways this medium has both fostered and critiqued racist attitudes. This panel welcomes submissions on this topic from any era of American comics/ graphic novels and from any literary critical or cultural studies perspective.

The failures of traditional periodization are nowhere more evident than when Western scholars approach non-Western cultures, religions, and/or political formations under the rubric of “middleness.” Even as projects such as the “Global Middle Ages” seek to broaden the geographic scope of medieval studies, which has for too long ignored the cultural production of non-European, non-Western societies, such endeavors import assumptions about modernization and enlightenment that may obscure as much as they reveal about the peoples and places they study.

In The Birthmark (1993), Susan Howe observes: "if you are a woman, archives hold perpetual ironies. Because the gaps and silences are where you find yourself." For Howe, historical omissions have been avenues for critical and creative agency. Writing into gaps--into invisible intersections between poetry and scholarship--Howe's work has brought us new forms of thinking and feeling about how we organize knowledge and what we recognize as "information." Howe's interrogation of the politics and aesthetics of knowing feels especially urgent in our current moment of Wikileaks and the Panama Papers, drone surveillance, the NSA, the spread of news via social media, and reality television.
