University of Southern California Call for Papers
This issue of Spectator seeks papers that engage in current debates about "post-identity" and their significance to academic studies of identity and media within national and global contexts. Questions of post-race, post-gender, and post-human identities have been consistently raised within the disciplines of Critical Race Theory, queer theory, new media theory, and gender studies, and this issue will examine the implications of these claims and their relationship to the field of media studies. Academic essays, interviews, and book reviews that interrogate the idea of "transcending" or moving beyond identity, as well as representations of "post-identity" within film, television and new media, are all encouraged for submission. Deadline for submission is November 29, 2009. Send manuscripts in email format to: Janani Subramanian, Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow, School of Cinematic Arts, University of Southern California at firstname.lastname@example.org.
