Evolving Women in Film

updated: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 11:01am
Northeast MLA 2019 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Open discussion of how women are portrayed in film should examine how those portrayals evolve over time to reflect changing cultural values. Women have fulfilled roles that exhibit their historically subservient or sexualized positions in society, among others. Over the decades the gender identity of women has fluctuated to include powerful women, emotionally strong women, lesbian women, and even neurologically atypical women. These identities reflect the expanding possibilities that society recognizes as more likely and more mainstream.

The Emotional Life of Horror Films (SCMS panel)

updated: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 10:59am
University of California, Berkeley
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 7, 2018

For all the research that has been conducted into the ideological underpinnings of horror, ideology is not ultimately constitutive of the genre. Emotions are, as producers and fans well know. Yet there has been scant scholarly attention given to emotions (or affects) as such in the genre. Whether the defining generic emotion is taken to be art-horror (Carroll), a feeling of threat (Aldana Reyes), or a looser family of reactions like fear and suspense and disgust (Schneider), there is no escaping emotions.

Sovereignty and Early Modern Literary Representation

updated: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 10:59am
North Eastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The nature of sovereignty and its related concerns were central for political theorists of the early modern period (Renaissance). These questions continued to circulate in succeeding centuries, and returned with particular significance in the late 20th and 21st centuries, especially among continental political philosophers. This seminar will engage with questions surrounding sovereignty in both early modern literary texts as they relate to debates about sovereignty in their own time and/or in the present.

Renaissance Society of America (RSA) 2019 - Toronto

Panel - Renaissance Vegetarianism

The study of early modern food has blossomed in recent years. As scholars have parsed the politics of changing dining practices, the role of recipes in intellectual history, and the growing perception of food ethics as inextricable from social identity, dietary beliefs and habits have begun to be seen as central to early modern studies. One of the most striking dietary trends that spread across Europe in this period, however, remains underexamined: the rise of vegetarianism.

Carlos Reygadas is a twenty-first century Mexican auteur of international acclaim. His opera prima, Japón (2002), was awarded the Caméra d’Or Special Mention at Cannes. After his second and third features were nominated for the Palme d’Or, his latest feature, Post Tenebras Lux (2012), again nominated for the Palme d’Or, won the award for best director. Reygadas’s poetic and experimental use of images, along with his subversive approach to traditional cinematic representations of Mexican life, has opened up an array of possibilities of interpretation for audiences and critics alike.

Superheroes and the Immigrant Experience (NeMLA 2019)

updated: 
Monday, July 16, 2018 - 9:46am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The superhero-as-outsider has been a narrative told for decades since Superman’s parents sent him on a rocket from Krypton to Earth. The immigration narrative is closely aligned with extraterrestrial heroes, including refugees such as the Martian Manhunter and Icon. Yet a superhero does not have to be from another planet to experience the process of immigration: in just X-Men, Charles Xavier, Deadpool, Nightcrawler, Colossus, and Storm all work outside their nations of birth, and Magneto forms Genosha as an international sanctuary for mutants persecuted by their governments. Recent films such as Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther examine the challenges of being forced out of one’s home and taking on the role of an exile.

Apocryphal Technologies (special issue)

continent: journal of media, art, and philosophy
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

The journal continent invites submissions for a special issue on the topic of “Apocryphal Technologies.” While the term “technological imaginary” is often used to describe how technologies are invested with utopian aspirations that prevent users from sensing legitimate disappointments, frustrations, or malfunctions, the term “apocryphal technology” refers to technological imaginaries that are more explicitly dubious, suspicious, or fraudulent. It also refers more specifically to technologies that are actually designed, built, and implemented (as opposed to the purely theoretical) and that are openly endorsed by their designers, promoters, and users (as opposed to the obviously impossible).

Sunday, September 30, 2018

The literature produced by the communities of early Northern Europe, where the elements of craft and material culture informed the descriptive matter of both poetry and prose, has left a legacy which demands critical analysis of the ways in which the trappings of the real and the imaginary were represented.  What were the relationships between figurative language, mimetic representation, the production of craft, and perceptions shaped by the visual arts?  Did the allegories, symbols, emblems, fancies, and verisimilitude of literature in Old and Middle English, Old Norse/Icelandic, Early Welsh, or Early Irish provide opportunities to discuss the interface of descriptive writing with other modes of representation?  Potential papers are asked to cons
