Shakespeare and Related Topics
We are seeking proposals focusing on Shakespeare and his time, Shakespeare and/or his peers, the influence of Shakespeare on later works of literature, adaptations of Shakespeare, and other proposals that touch on any aspect of Shakespeare and related topics. As a standing session we welcome paper proposals on a wide variety of topics; however, papers that address the conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages" in relation to Shakespeare are particularly welcome.
Open (accepting submissions until June 27)
On the Western’s frontier, citizens and sociopaths abound—lawmen and outlaws, gamblers and gunmen, cavalry wives and soiled doves, the Indian chiefs and buffalo scouts. How do these figures—materially or metaphorically—shape the creation, delivery and reception of the American West in film? The "good" citizen in a Western may seem easy to define, but when do some portrayals of citizenship succeed, inspiring audiences, while others backfire? When might the actions of sociopaths be laudable?

Popular Culture and Film
ReFocus: The Films of João Pedro Rodrigues & João Rui Guerra da Mata
With a career that spans over twenty years, João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata are one of the most creative duos in contemporary filmmaking working within the context of Portuguese cinema. Acknowledged by several film festivals (Cannes, Indie Lisboa, Locarno, New York) as major Portuguese directors, and by the Harvard Film Archive as creators whose works “reflect the multifarious history of film, from classic genres to experimental film”, both filmmakers have contributed to the growing interest in Portuguese cinema.
