We are seeking chapter submissions for an edited volume that interrogates representations of children and youth’s agency in science fiction and fantasy. Our collection will explore child and youth agency in the context of “beyond the known.” Often, children’s agency is viewed as imaginary, given the heightened structures foisted upon them by adults/parents, peers/friends, and institutions/organizations in the real world. Insomuch as science fiction and fantasy represent liminal spaces with unbounded potential, our book may unearth that child and youth agency is accepted as more real in the unreal, more possible in the impossible.

The research program MEDIA (TransCrit, EA 1569) is organizing a one-day workshop on brand placement in film and TV series. The workshop will be held at the University of Paris 8 on Friday 15 June 2018.
Neither an artistic choice nor a coincidence, brand placement started to be used as soon as the movie industry was created but in a moderate way. Due to the rising costs of film production, this financial partnership has progressively become unavoidable to such an extent that a certain number of Hollywood movies and series could not be produced without it. The same applies, perhaps even to a larger degree, to TV shows, even though their production mode sometimes places them side-by-side with regular TV commercials.
