Latino/a and Latin American Media Artists, Performers, Consumers, and Citizens. This American Studies Association 2010 conference panel seeks papers that examine the uses and designs of media by Latino/a and Latin American artists, performers, consumers, and citizens, specifically how they negotiate sociopolitical structures, challenge conventional artistic forms, circumvent media industry logic, and present citizen-consumersí and artistsí alternatives. Possible topics may be media performance artists, internet curators, digital filmmakers, community video makers, media activists, or media consumers. This call is open to perspectives, theoretical approaches, and methods from a variety of disciplinary areas, including but not limited to American Studies, Art and Art History, Anthropology, History, Sociology, Latino/a studies, Latin American studies, media studies, performance studies, and visual studies. Proposals that express a relationship to the ASA 2010 conference theme are encouraged, and they may address race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, migration, hybridity, consumer culture, public culture, and cultural citizenship. The panel will aim to explore media as a site of artistic, cultural, and political expression of cultural identities and cultural citizenship of Latino/a and Latin American peoples. Please send c.v., proposal title, abstract (maximum 500 words), and any questions to Chad Beck firstname.lastname@example.org by January 14, 2010.
