CFP: Iconic Images in Media for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

Our daily lives are saturated with images, but among the mundane are the few—like the drowned Syrian refugee child—that stand out and become icons of some bigger issue in society. It is not only their stories that are important to analyze, but also the effect these images have on the population. No longer are we dependent on those with professional equipment and experience to show us images and stories from half a world away. Pictures taken by the people and of the people have a way of refocusing hearts and minds away from war/conflict/political agenda and to the lives of the individuals affected. This session will focus on these kinds of images as text and analyze their stories, context, and effect in our society.

This panel welcomes papers that address the topic of “Global Media Ecologies” in a broad sense. In an age defined simultaneously by increased media sharing across national lines and the retrenchment of perceived “clashes” of cultures, an analysis of media ecologies offers a unique window onto shifting notions of community and identity. Papers might reflect on contemporary ecologies created by new media platforms, softwares and marketing; on old media forms (radio, television, film) and their popularity in a variety of local and global spaces; on the limits and possibilities of translation; on the emergence of distinct popular narratives and tropes, etc. Papers may analyze these and/or other questions within one region or across regions.

From the Frankfurt School to contemporary cultural studies, the social ramifications of Disney movies and theme parks, and their cultural penumbra, have long provided rich terrain for critical scholarly analysis. This panel explores the discursive, literary, filmic, and historical dimensions of the Disney phenomenon in both the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Papers that draw upon the rich canon of scholarship on Disney and engage with its cultural effects through critical theory, spatial or historical analysis, feminist methodologies, or close reading strategies are particularly encouraged.
