UPDATE: CONFLICT AND CONTROVERSY in Small Cinemas

The 7th International Conference in Small Cinemas

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.

Dr Lorna Piatti-Farnell and Prof. Donna Lee Brien

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.

We are seeking proposals for an interdisciplinary anthology, tentatively titled "Perma/Culture: Imagining Alternatives in an Age of Crisis," that will treat cultural production and practices related to "alternatives"—both critical and creative, descriptive and imaginative—that challenge the unjust and unsustainable systems that dominate at present.
