CFP ReFocus: The Films of Xavier Dolan

Ever since his first feature film J’ai tué ma mère premiered at Cannes in 2009, where it received an eight-minute standing ovation and three awards, every film from the prolific and precocious 28 year-old Québécois director Xavier Dolan has generated significant buzz. A recipient of numerous international awards, Dolan has recently taken his career into genre filmmaking (with Tom à la ferme, which premiered at Venice and garnered the prestigious FRIPESCI prize) and to an international level, with his first English-language feature The Death and Life of John F. Donovan now in post-production.

The current political climate cultivates a culture hostile to basic freedoms of speech and press, refuses to acknowledge fact-based knowledge, and belittles activists as “paid protesters.” Recently, Inside Higher Ed published, “Time for the Scholar Activist” (Oct. 2016).  Its author, Kerry Ann Rockquemore, suggests, “The main feature of the [Reframe Your Definition of Activism] model is integrating the work you are hired to do as a faculty member with the changes you want to see in the world.

Organic Systems: Environments, Bodies and Culture in Science Fiction

London Science Fiction Research Community (Birkbeck + Royal Holloway)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Though often understood in ecological terms, the word ‘environment’ can also be viewed more widely as the surroundings and conditions of a specific system—whether they be mechanical, biological, social or chemical. Culture arises from and then informs these systems, becoming itself a further component of environments. Science fictional texts have explored the interactions between culture, environments and bodies on a wide spectrum of scale: from the level of a planetary biosphere or climate system (e.g. terraforming) to a single body or organ (e.g. genetic engineering). This conference will gather Science Fiction researchers, critics, authors and readers together to discuss intersections between cultural and organic systems in all forms of SF media.

Issue #4: From Digital to Print:  Letters and Learning in Electracy

At the 2005 annual meeting of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, Gregory L. Ulmer reminded conference-goers of the importance of understanding our relationships to writing and print, the apparatus from which our identities, perspectives, theories and practices emerge.  Over the course of thirty years and eight books, Ulmer has called for us not only to be aware of the emerging apparatus he dubbed “electracy” but also to help invent and shape it.

Experiments in Relational Pedagogy: Initiating Invention in the Arts and Humanities

The Arts & Humanities in the academy are in a critical juncture in its history. As we progress further into the digital age, colleges and universities are gradually adopting new policies and new programs and college-wide initiatives to foster research and teaching that addresses both technological and societal changes as well as economic and industry demands. Simultaneously, these departments are facing new or ongoing financial restraints and students, faculty, and practitioners alike confront new, real world obstacles in their respective markets.

Monday, April 3, 2017 - 2:07pm
The Projector: A Journal on Film, Media, and Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2017

     The Projector is developing a special (potentially double) issue reinvestigating art house exhibition. We are interested in research that contributes to the growing body of work on art house exhibition, particularly in relation to the changing modes of art house distribution and exhibition in the era of media convergence.

      This special issue looks at the changing modes of exhibition at art house theatres by examining their audiences, marketing strategies, programming, fundraising, technologies and industrial practices.

Approaches to this topic may include:

  • Case studies of individual art house theatres

  • Historical art house theatres and their marketing strategies and audiences
