Not being seen for who one is has always been a problem in society; conversely, having difficulty seeing what is hidden beneath surface appearance is a constant challenge. This traditional session will explore how characters’ identities are both concealed and revealed in literature, television, and film. A variety of approaches are possible, including (but not limited to) the questions that follow: When/why do characters find it difficult to let themselves be seen for who they are? When do plots rely on a character’s mysterious identity, and how do both characters in the story and the audience discover (some) of the hidden truths?

This CFP is a call for essays for a forthcoming edited collection.

Consent is often deemed a prerequisite to ethical interactions—particularly sexual ones. A nonconsensual act is viewed as an affront, a violation, an oppression. For an act to seem permissible, one requires what Heidi M. Hurd calls the “moral magic” of consent.

Usually, the narratives around food habits and culinary practices are structured around individual tastes. However, the narratives can be and need to be structured much beyond individual tastes. Historically, it has been observed that individual and collective food habits and culinary practices are driven by various social, cultural, gendered, sexual, racial, caste, geographical, commercial, and political factors. These factors provoke us to go beyond the stereotypical scientific narratives of consumption and unpack the various social dynamics and power structures that are associated with our daily food habits and culinary practices.

The pandemic brought a lot of changes to the structure of American society. COVID-19 was a disabling pandemic, leaving many people with severe health issues that they didn’t have pre-pandemic and which now affect their daily life. And when it comes to mental illness, the pandemic threw some of us into the realization that loneliness, depression, anxiety, etc. are more prevalent than we thought. This issue was so prominent in the minds of health officials, that the Surgeon General released a report on this new loneliness epidemic.

Monday, June 30, 2025

 What began as a predominantly American gay white cisgender male identity and community has grown and transformed substantially since the publication of The Bear Book (1997) and Bear Book II in 2000. Since then bear culture has spread rapidly across the globe and been embraced embodied and transformed into new sex and gender identities beyond the hetero/homo binary and further inflected by non-Anglophonic cultures. Self-identifying bears are “queering” masculinities. These profound shifts in bear identity, community, and culture remain underdocumented and understudied.
