Engendering Narrative:

Transforming Image, Text, and Medium

"Living substance conquers the frenzy of destruction

only in the ecstasy of procreation."—Walter Benjamin

The Pennsylvania College English Association (PCEA) invites proposals for its 2020 Annual Conference on the theme of engendering narratives, or begetting, producing, and procreating narrative. We are requesting pieces that focus on what engenders narrative creativity while highlighting the importance of reading and better understanding artistic purpose and intent.

Reminder [ACLA2020] Post-Magical Realist Worlds: Contemporary Postcolonial Story-Telling Modes, Critiques, and Perspectives

Born in the mid-twentieth century in Latin America, magical realism quickly became “the literary language of the emergent post-colonial world” (Bhabha 7). It developed as a means of capturing and representing the experience of living in worlds marked by both colonial conquest and anticolonial resistance, and in which “improbable juxtapositions and marvelous mixtures” (Zamora and Faris 76) exist side by side. Since then, magical realism has circulated widely, picked up by authors in formerly colonized nations around the world and adapted to their own, local, representational needs.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2019

In summer of 2019 Netflix released the highly anticipated Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese. Scorsese takes footage shot before and during Dylan’s legendary concert tour, combines it with later interviews of principal figures (real and fake) involved with the 1975 shows, and adds in his own cinematic sleight-of-hand, producing a film which attempts to recapture the carnivalesque spirit of Dylan’s travelling revue.

I seek papers for a panel examining the dramatic dimensions of the Rolling Thunder Revue. Subjects might include, but are not limited to, the following:

CFP: Cine-feminisms and the Academy Symposium

UNSW Sydney, 12-13th December 2019

The contemporary media landscape is shaped by increasing precarity and awareness of gendered issues. The global screen industry is grappling with the cultural and industrial shifts precipitated by the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. For some, the Harvey Weinstein revelations and subsequent scandal resulted in a re-evaluation of the gendered operation of Hollywood. The industry has responded on the red carpet, through the media and in film festival juries. What role do – and can – forms of film feminisms (or cine-feminism) play within this context?

Gender Equality and Sustainability: Agnès Varda’s Sustaining Legacy

Istanbul Bilgi University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 1, 2019

İstanbul Bilgi University is launching a series of annual events dedicated to the intersecting themes of gender equality and sustainability under various academic disciplines. This year’s event will consider the framework of film studies. The inspiration for this inaugural symposium comes from the tireless gleaner of images Agnès Varda, whose legacy of female subjectivity spans more than six decades, from her first film La Pointe Courte (1955) to her final documentary Varda par Agnès (2019). An opening event launching the series will be followed by a one-day symposium to mark the anniversary of Varda’s passing, taking place at İstanbul Bilgi University, March 27-28, 2020
