SEMINAR PAPERS FOR THE FOLLOWING SEMINAR AT NEMLA CONVENTION 2015:

Philip K. Dick: Literary and Cinematic Visions for the Twenty-First Century

This seminar seeks papers that engage with Philip K. Dick's work. More specifically I would like the seminar to engage with any aspect of Dick's work, cinematic adaptations of his work, or work that was inspired by his vision—social, economic, religious, political—which has become so relevant in the twenty-first century and possibly beyond. Let us reflect on the immanence and historicity of the work and its adaptations while exploring it alongside contemporary issues and developments.

[UPDATE] Imaginary Relations (ongoing; ejournal)

Imaginary Relations: A Journal for the Ideological Critique of Aesthetic Objects (IR)

Announcing Imaginary Relations
Invitation to submit essays

Imaginary Relations is an experimental ejournal dedicated to ideological critique and analysis of aesthetic objects: poetry, fiction, drama, film and television. The journal seeks to examine the competing meanings that ideologies generate; how ideologies are produced and reproduced in single cultural productions; how ideologies function to produce material practices, such as reading, and how those reading practices can work to reproduce and transform ideologies. The journal, therefore, focuses on the complex valences of ideology as positive and productive forces in culture that do, and can, transform subjectivities and social relations.
