CFP for ACLA 2013 Panel: Tactics of the Visible in the Age of Overexposure
Submission Deadline: November 1, 2012

Space is now overexposed, seemingly made transparent by the operations of countless optical devices such as security cameras, satellite imaging, and even spy drones. Ordinary life is triangulated by Global Positioning Systems, captured by “reality” television, and streamed live over the network.  In this context, what new tactics of visibility and invisibility ensue?  Can transparency be appropriated and used to other ends?  Does privacy itself take on new political valences in the age of
overexposure?

This panel invites scholars from all areas to consider the evolving relationship between the public and the private, transparency and opacity, exposed spaces and intimate enclosures, approached either as conceptual problems or analyzed in literature and visual arts.
