The 7th International Conference in Small Cinemas
contact email: 

The Jagiellonian University
Krakow, Poland, September 28-30, 2016
DEADLINE: April 30, 2016
The topic of the conference is CONFLICT AND CONTROVERSY -- the divisive areas in contemporary societies and the ways in which they are presented in small cinemas today.
CONFLICT AND CONTROVERSY are at the basis of almost every political event communicated in the contemporary media, dominate media headlines and are present in popular culture and film on a large scale. Due to the vastness of the project, we seek the representation of conflict and controversy only in contemporary cinemas, including fiction film, documentary film, short film and private cinema, but disregarding other media like television and internet.

This Companion will cover the relationship between food and literature in the broadest sense. In recent years, food studies has developed into a solid and distinctly academic field of studies; the relationship between representational structures –such as literature – and the uses of food metaphors that these make has gained significant interest from the academic community, in interdisciplinary and transnational contexts. 'Literary food studies' can be viewed as a new and emerging field of enquiry, which re-evaluates, rethinks and (re-)discovers the importance of food and eating in understanding the ways we live and communicate.

Violent Feelings: Affective Intensities in Literature, Film and Criticism (Edited Collection)

"Violent Feelings" institutes a new conversation about the relationship between violence and affect. Such a conversation will also necessarily complicate our understanding of the two central terms in play. Must violence by definition inflict physical injury? Must violence be a strong, or intense affect? Does the exchange of affect take on a physicality that can become violent? How is violence similar to, or different from, other intense states of feeling, "ugly" or otherwise?

I'm putting together a panel on Travel Writing and Periodical Press for this year's British Association
of Victorian Studies (BAVS) Conference, "Consuming the Victorians" (http://bavs2016.co.uk/).

The panel, thus far, looks at women's serial periodical travel writing. My paper will focus on the travel writing of Frances Minto Elliot (née Dickinson) in The New Monthly Magazine, while the second panellist, Teja Pusapati (University of Oxford), will discuss Harriet Martineau's travel reportage on Ireland. However, we invite proposals on any aspect of travel and the Victorian periodical.
