Hi,

I am seeking essays in English to include in a volume tentatively entitled "Dreamscapes Projected: The Oneiric in Italian Film Culture," to be published by FDU Press.

This volume will explore the oneiric in Italian cinema, from filmic representations and visualizations of dreams, nightmares, hallucinations, dream-like and hypnagogic states, to dreams as cinematic allegories and metaphors, and the theoretical frameworks applied to the investigation of this relationship. Relevant comparative studies between Italian and American, European and non-Western cinema are encouraged.

The Golden Age: Nostalgia in Word and Image

University of Dundee

The Golden Age is the Tenth Annual Postgraduate Conference hosted by the English Programme, University of Dundee, in conjunction with the Scottish Word and Image Group. It is intended to investigate the diverse applications and conceptions of the term 'The Golden Age'. The phrase most obviously resonates with the theme of nostalgia, which is popularly understood as a wistful longing for the past but which also denotes homesickness. While 'The Golden Age' typically conjures up idealized and nostalgic visions of the past, it is equally suggestive of a discontented present, and it even gestures forward to utopian visions of future golden ages.

Moving Modernisms - Panel at MSA conference

Wendy Knepper / Brunel University

"Moving Modernisms"€ aims to reconsider our understanding of modernism by situating the modernist aesthetic as an affective response to a world where a sense of place and spatial relations are undergoing fundamental change. The word "€œmoving"€ can refer to a change of position or location, feelings and emotions that touch one and the impetus to act or make something happen.

In a modernist context, the notion of moving calls to mind the interplay between modernism as an era of changing relations to space, the emergence of a new sense of affect and a wider engagement with the world through writing as action. In the context of the MSA conference, papers that place an emphasis on spectacle are especially welcome.
