NeMLA 2024: El archivo del futuro: memes, influencers y otras narrativas de la viralidad

Este panel invita a explorar la cultura de internet del mundo hispanohablante y sus representaciones en producciones artísticas. El meme fue acuñado por el biólogo Richard Dawkins en 1976 para referirse a la difusión de “tunes, ideas, catch- phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or builduing arches” (249) mediante procesos de imitación. Décadas más tarde, el estudio de Patrick Davison (2012) corroboraría que la idea de “meme” había evolucionado gracias a las redes sociales y había pasado a tener el poder de exclusivamente cumplir un objetivo humorístico. Autores como B. E. Wiggins y G. Bret Bowers (2014) argumentan que la circulación del meme es una herramienta conversacional que alienta la participación de la cultura digital.

Shirley Geok-lin Lim claimed, “My Westernization took place in my body.” This panel seeks to theorize the female Korean American body as a racialized and excluded site--a biopolitical site for trauma and haunting. More specifically, we seek to investigate representations of Korean women’s bodies in Korean/Korean American women’s writing and how these representations come to embody fidelity, disloyalty, and/or negotiate multiple affiliations and the movement between allegiances.

As such, this panel asks:

How is the Korean female figure situated between Westernization/Americanization and Asian alliances?

Cinema arrived with a train approaching the platform with such speed that the audience jumped off their seats. So it goes in film history, as Martin Loiperdinger points out in "Cinema's Founding Myth" (2004), with the account of the public screening of the Lumiere brothers' The Arrival of the Train at La Ciotat from 1896. And with the introduction of psychoanalysis and structural linguistics in film theory by for example Raymond Bellour in The Analysis of Film (1979: 182), so the train metaphor for sex in film lives on.
