In his essay “Reflections on Exile,” the Arab intellectual Edward Said noted that the difference between earlier exiles and those of our own times is “scale”: “our age—with its modern warfare, imperialism, and the quasi-theological ambitions of totalitarian rulers—is indeed the age of the refugee, the displaced person, and mass migration.” Exile and migration—the experiences of being separated from one’s homeland—have informed intellectual, cultural, artistic and political thought since antiquity all over the world.

Call for Papers
The impact of aviation on the 20th and 21st centuries on both time and space has been enormous. From the first adventurers and explorers, through the first legacy companies, the jet age, and now the low cost operators, aviation has tremendously changed concepts of time and space, which in turn has impacted on commerce, security and culture.

This panel invites papers on representations of social transformation in the Marvel Universe to be presented at South Central MLA’s 2017 annual convention held October 5-8th in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Presenters should feel free to propose papers on a wide-range of topics. We are especially interested, however, in papers that explore the representation of trauma and/or violence as a necessary part of socially transformative practices. Proposed papers could consider, for instance, the trauma of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s terrigenesis or how Luke Cage’s body—often riddled with bullets—offers a challenge to the “All Lives Matter” movement.
