What can moving images do? An ecological thinking of the moving image

updated: 
Thursday, December 21, 2017 - 10:11am
Transformations: journal of media, culture and technology
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

This issue of Transformations calls for papers as provocations into the human-nature relation through the questioning power of the moving image. In particular, we are looking for contributions that focus on the function of the moving image as a material artefact or visual object within an ecological milieu or image-world, where the human relation to nature is rendered open-to-question. Thinking about the moving image extends to many formats, including panoramas, dioramas, video art installations, online digital displays, scientific data schematisation and other visual apparatuses, as well as narrative and non-narrative film and cinematic projection.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 30, 2018

This panel seeks to examine the writings of Marilynne Robinson, one of the most important contemporary American writers.  Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and contemporary culture.  This panel considers the ways in which Robinson’s religious vision informs her writing.  How has Robinson contributed to discussions of faith in our contemporary moment, both through her fiction and essays?  How is her investigation of this topic especially relevant to the growing field of post-secular studies?  How is her Pulitzer novel, Gilead, a meditation on race and religion in American culture?

Gravity Assist: Speculative Change in Literature, Film and Art

updated: 
Wednesday, March 28, 2018 - 3:40am
Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, The University of Split, Croatia
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 1, 2018

Gravity assist is a slingshot move, when one object uses the gravity of another to propel itself out of orbit. This concept from space travel, first used with the Mariner 10 probe in 1974, functions as a metaphor for escaping the constraints of the present to create change for the future. The conference, to be held by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Split, Croatia, 14-15 September, 2018, aims to examine strategies for challenging the limitations of the present in order to escape from them. Much contemporary thought is unfortunately, but understandably, focused on dystopia.
