With an increasing interest for a globalized and diverse society, the quest for an authentic self is more readily apparent and therefore further conflates the problem of representation. Globalization expands beyond social media and encroaches on the realms of the public and private spheres. However, the process of authenticity only further stabilizes potentially harmful ideologies that promote illusions of truth. In some instances, language (literature), film, and art, because of their figurative element, expose the artificiality of representation and engage the issue of authenticity. How are certain claims to truth (authenticity/referentiality) formulated, regulated, and destabilized through representation in literature, film, and art?

STRANGE NEW WORLDS: NEW FRONTIERS IN CINEMA AND TELEVISION
De Montfort University, Cinema and Television History Research Centre

Issues of technology and film have long been considered fundamental bedfellows. Studies of technology's impact both on the cinema - from the coming of sound and colour to the rise of digital media - and within its films have shaped much scholarly thinking. Indeed, representations of technology's effects on modern and future life shine a light on our most elemental fears.

MLA Special Session—A Radical New Vision: Popular Visual Culture and African-American Self-Fashioning—Abstracts due by March 9th

full name / name of organization: 
Stacie McCormick and Kya Mangrum

We are inviting proposals for a possible special session that asks how African-American writers and artists—from the end of the U.S. Civil war through the end of World War I—revised, re-mixed, and rejected popular images of Blackness in their struggle to shape alternative modes of seeing and being seen.

Indeed, the ubiquity of visual images representing Black people and Black life that followed the rise of mechanically reproducible visual technologies—from the lithographic print to the stereographic view—created a contesting set of visual archives that both reified and rejected the types of denigrating images made popular on the minstrel stage and in the uneven visual representations of the anti-slavery movement.
