Æffective Æsthetics: Representation of Emotion

Rice Graduate Symposium, September 26-27, 2008
Rice University, Houston, Texas

Affective representation in both artistic and lived experience is
frequently explained in terms of competing social, political, and
cultural systems that often nullify one another. Compounding the problem
is the tendency for affect to complicate how we think about
representation; it seems that the two are inextricable. Through
investigating representations of affect within a variety of fields, this
conference proposes to find inroads that will bring the competing claims
of various discourses together into productive dialogue.

CFP: [Renaissance] Gluttony (GEMCS Panel 05/01/08)

Friday, March 21, 2008 - 4:53pm
Nate Eastman

I'm seeking contributors for a GEMCS 2008 panel on gluttony (broadly defined).

This could include gluttony in the morality tradition, gluttony as a character attribute in drama or
prose, gluttony as a theological concept, gluttony in nondramatic art, or gluttony in any other
situation your imagination, material, and relevance will allow, e.g. gluttony in the surprisingly
numerous broadsheet ballads about providentially significant monstrous London swine, 1550-
1640.

Short (less than one page) abstracts or questions should be sent to Nate Eastman (eastmna at
earlham.edu) by 1 May 2008.

James Leo Cahill

Accidents in Film and Media

In The Accident of Art (2005), Paul Virilio proposes that “as soon as there
is invention, there is accident,” and that the accident “reveals something
important that we would not otherwise be able to perceive.” Writing of one
momentous invention, Mary Ann Doane identifies cinema’s driving impulse as
a “curious merger of contingency and structure,” suggesting that the moving
image participates in the taming of the unpredictable while simultaneously
reinforcing its power.
