High Art/Low Art: Boundaries of Genre, Character, and Viewer in Popular and Independent Film, SAMLA 89 [proposal due June 1, 2017]

updated: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:14pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association Film Studies Group
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

Across independent, international, and Hollywood film communities, notions of boundary continue to articulate and challenge how we engage with film. As viewers, critics, and theorists, how might we problematize boundaries of genre, character, and viewer in popular and/or independent film? And when boundaries separating high from low art begin to dissolve, how do we trace dissolutions and reformulations of boundary between popular and independent film? In keeping with the theme of high art/low art: border and boundaries in popular culture, this panel seeks papers addressing liminality in writing, directing, visual style, and performance in popular and independent film.

Early Modern Drama and Ecocriticism

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:14pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

This panel seeks papers about any aspect of Early Modern Drama and Ecocriticism. Presenters are welcome to address the SAMLA 89 theme, as well as themes important to the study of Early Modern drama and Ecocriticism (i.e. nature, ecology, anthropocentrism, recycling, and sustainability). Responses to some of the following boundary transgressions in popular culture are particularly encouraged: How does Early Modern drama alert audiences to the materiality and interconnectivity of human subjectivity? How do the storms, anatomy lessons, catalogues of plants and animals, and forests in the old plays we read inform the contemporary climate crisis? How does Early Modern drama complicate the “anthropo” of the Anthropocene?

THE POLITICS OF MEMORY IN CONTEMPORARY U.S. VISUAL CULTURE

updated: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:13pm
SAMLA 89 South Atlantic Modern Language Association Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2017

This special session investigates the function of memory in U.S. visual culture, tracing political significance of remembering particular historical events in a contemporary moment. Indeed, judging by recent examples—including Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway sensation Hamilton, Theodore Melfi’s blockbuster Hidden Figures, and John Lewis’s graphic novel trilogy March; the representational backwards-gaze upon the national past seems to enact, at a minimum, influential political critique and, at a maximum potential, art-based activism. We welcome proposals for 15-minute papers that consider the political stakes of memory and remembrance in any visual artifact (broadly defined) that engages U.S. culture.
