Reel borders: Transnational Cinema in the 21st Century

UConn will host a one-day film seminar in conjunction with the Reel
Ireland Film Festival on Saturday, April 5, 2008. The theme will be
Transnational Cinemas. As technological developments and economic and
social globalization come to the forefront of contemporary cultural
studies, the concept of the transnational artist becomes increasingly
more important. Themes that will be considered include but are not
limited to how nationalism is strengthened or weakened in the face of
such globalization, literary adaptations to film, identifying a (trans)
national audience, Diasporic film, hyphenated identities and cross-
cultural production.

UPDATE: [Graduate] 2008 New Directions in Critical Theory––Extended Deadline

updated: 
Wednesday, February 6, 2008 - 9:03pm
James Wermers

New Directions in Critical Theory is an
annual interdisciplinary graduate student
conference at the University of Arizona; the
2008 conference will focus on a selfconscious
examination of the ways we do
work at the university. While interdiscplinarity
questions the boundaries that mark off
everything from university departments to
methods of inquiry, the space between
disciplines is not a neutral zone. When we
shuffle prefixes and suffixes in an attempt to
announce new disciplines and identities, we
work in a liminal space that we participate in
creating. This endeavor must be undertaken
cautiously; remapping disciplines and
identities is never an innocent game.

Dear Director of Graduate Studies in English,

As organizers of the 4th Annual Intermountain Graduate Conference (IGC), we
would like to remind your graduate students of the upcoming conference to
be held on April 4th at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. We are
pleased to announce that we have received abstracts from over 20
universities in 16 states, as well as a few from overseas. Because of the
great interest and response to this conference, we have opted to make room
for more presentations. We have thus decided to extend the abstract
submission deadline to February 15, 2008.
