religious identity through embodiment and enactment. Here, religion is
broadly defined to encompass a wide range of spiritualities and religious
practices.

  

Possible sites for such performances include, but are not limited to:

explain that world with words, but words can never undo the fact that we
are surrounded by it. The relationship between what we see and what we

As disciplines heavily invested in making sense of the contemporary world, media and cultural
studies are constantly engaging with new examples, new technologies, new political contexts and
even new theoretical paradigms. Neither media nor cultural studies, as relatively recent
interdisciplines, has a canonical set of texts or all-conquering theoretical heroes or classic
methodologies. What we teach and how we teach shifts, in part, along with the evolving
experiences and enthusiasms of our students and changes in the cultural landscape.

The field of food studies has grown enormously over the last decade, as
evidenced in part by the steadily increasing number of academics and
professionals in the humanities, social and nutrition sciences, culinary
arts, and hospitality studies who have become engaged in cross-
disciplinary conversations about food. Operating in tandem with the
explosion of popular fascination with food, these conversations have been
joined of late by academics, attorneys, and activists who are
particularly concerned with the question of how our relationship to food
is, has been, and should be, mediated through law. In response to this
emerging area of inquiry, we are soliciting both conference papers and

What the "future of cinema" will entail has been an issue hotly debated by filmmakers, critics and
scholars alike throughout (and within the various inceptions of) film history. The Soviet montage
theorists bemoaned the death of cinema as a visual medium when sound threatened to change it
irrevocably; and twenty-five years later, movie producers saw the popularization of television as
an equal if not greater threat. Likewise, filmmakers, critics, and scholars today (both
optimistically and pessimistically) see new media outlets and technologies like Internet
distribution and digital media as the last great wave that will finally obliterate the classical

original essays for a new anthology on the theory and philosophy of screen
acting.
