American Literature Association (ALA) Panel Topic Proposal: Alternative Realities

This panel aims to explore alternative realities or perspectives that can be applied to and appear in American literature.  Through this exploration, it is possible to discover new avenues of discussion and interpretation of popular and/or canonical texts, which in turn allows for deeper cultural and social understanding.  Examining work that literally and figurative create alternative realities illuminates social anxieties, era-tied socio-cultural psyches, and continuing cultural patterns of oppression.

This panel is open to any American text, whether it is literature, graphic fiction, TV, video games and so on.

Access and Accessibility: Disability is Not a Metaphor

Disability has functioned historically to justify inequality for disabled people themselves, but it has also done so for women and [other] minority groups. That is, not only has it been considered justifiable to treat disabled people unequally, but the concept of disability has been used to justify discrimination against other groups by attributing disability to them.

Genders and Sexualities in Asian Cinemas

updated: 
Monday, December 2, 2019 - 3:16pm
Kritika Kultura
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 29, 2020

The circulation, commodification, and repression of discourses on genders and sexualities within and among Asian countries has been a constant feature of regimes of modernization, from colonial through neocolonial and postcolonial periods. Aptly enough, it is mainly through the modern vehicle of cinema where these discourses play out. Kritika Kultura will be initiating a forum on the filmic representations of issues on genders and sexualities in the Southeast Asian region, in line with its commitment to the pursuit and development of cultural and media studies, slated for the journal’s February 2021 issue.
