Digital Platforms and Cancel Culture: Television and New Media Special Issue

updated: 
Monday, July 25, 2022 - 12:50pm
Special Issue for Television & New Media
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 15, 2022

With the advent of social media and platform infrastructures, cancel culture has engendered new means of regulation through digital media platforms which appear to further silence already marginalised communities.

NeMLA 2023: Niagara Falls, NY. March 23-26, 2023.

In the second half of the 20th century, Haitian society has been profoundly impacted by massive waves of exile provoked by the collective trauma of the Duvaliers dictatorships and epitomized by the internationally recognizable image of the "boat people". On the literary scene, the resulting Haitian diaspora, in North America and elsewhere, has found ways to maintain connections with the native land, reminiscing on childhood memories, revisiting Haiti both physically and metaphorically, and engaging with their shared history, myths, and traditions.

What makes us happy and content in our life? Some people may point to fabulous fame, fortune, or money. Some may say that the key to happiness are interpersonal relationships.
