This essay addresses Alison Bechdel's graphic memoir, Fun Home and its critique of metronormativity, a dominant narrative within which rural queers move to a urban place of tolerance after enduring a long period of homophobic repression. The discourse of hegemonic lesbian and gay urbanism normalizes a big city as the final destination to which rural-identified queers must assimilate. By employing the frame of queer ecology, this paper submits that Fun Home critiques a homonormative impulse embedded in the metronormative discourse. The first half of this essay charts the way in which U.S. capitalism has provided material condition for the making of gay and lesbian identities. I also consider how queer politics of protest and equality has shifted to a de-politicized and commodified urban gay subculture in the post-Stonewall period. In the second half of this paper, I analyze Fun Home in a way that focuses on how the graphic memoir interrogates historical context and ideologies of metronormativity. Paying special attention to the book's portrayal of Beech Creek, the small hometown of Bechel's father in central Pennsylvania, this paper argues that Fun Home performs an intersectional queer ecological politics, one that links homophobia, metrocentric bias, homonormativity, and environmental commodification. In doing so, this paper concludes that Bechdel's text provides a complicated and nuanced understanding of metronormativity and queer ecology.

With the advent of the electronically networked digital media age, humanity's long-held dream of shedding the mortal coil to achieve immortality has never felt as feasible as it does now. While the drive to achieve a vicarious sublimation of the liberal subject model as that which aspires to such state fuels myriad endeavors in the tech-sector, the outcomes so far demonstrate that there remains much to be desired―not only in terms of their functional viability but also ethical integrity. The wondrous prospect of persevering beyond the demise of one's material fetters abounds in our current mediascape, with narratives about digitized humans or humanized artificial intelligence proliferating more than ever. Such portrayals of digital immortality, however, must contend with the risk of rendering the human-machine analogy literal, alienating the very value that it sets out to advocate by instrumentalizing personhood in service of its preservation. Focusing on comparative readings of fictional human and nonhuman entities that problematize the prospect of reducing the sovereignty of personhood to bodies of reproducible information, with specific focus on Ancillary Justice as an exemplar of the second variety in the two dominant strains of representations that respectively center on human and nonhuman provenance of personhood, this essay investigates the discontents of digital immortality to illuminate its an ontological paradox.

This paper examines the interface that splits apart yet at the same time links Native Son and Native Speaker, which unmistakably parallel each other in genre and theme in addition to their titular ties. In the first half of this Native Son/Native Speaker study, I investigate the complex and nuanced gap between the two texts, especially in relation to the matter of the unauthorized nativeness in white America, and also the direct clashes between Koreans and African Americans in the 1992 LA riots. In order to bridge the apparent gap between the two non-white minority groups, in the second half of this intertextuality study, I explore the unarticulated intersection of the African-Korean American texts by addressing self-effacement, the distinct feature shared by the subject formation of Green and Henry Park who appear, respectively, as a marginal African American character in Native Son and as a Korean American protagonist in Native Speaker. The main focus of this part is to examine the specific ways in which white surveillance culture exerts substantial influence on the distinct mode of the non-white subject formation, the correlation between surveillance culture and identity in a racially contextualized American society, so to speak. This Native Son/Native Speaker study thereby aims to contribute to a field of Afro-Asian intersection scholarship that is insufficient, compared to other cross-racial intersection scholarship within the field of American literary studies.
