Seeking Panelists for Session Proposal - "Material Subcultures"

Dear colleagues,

I am seeking historians, art historians, and anthropologists (preferably of color) who'd be interested in submitting something with as part of a session that explores subcultural identity construction, tentatively titled "Material Subcultures: Production and Consumption on the Margins." My research is on queer Euro/American pornography in the early twentieth century.

If you deal with subcultures, film and/or material culture or know someone who does, please let me know! My email is gvgk.tang@temple.edu.
