Defining the Americas: Media Within/Across Borders

The history of the American continents has long been one of establishing and
crossing borders. From pre-colonial times to the present, people and
cultures define and redefine themselves and their borders, especially in
response to perceived conquest opportunities or threats. As cultural
discourse, media interrogates the construction of identity within and beyond
national or other boundaries.

The Sounds of Vision: Spectatorship and Aural Perception

The musical score, dialogue, and sounds of contemporary screen based
products of the past ten years have addressed a far more aurally
aware spectator, as demonstrated by the increasing complexities of
style and construction of the sound track. What might be some of the
methodological approaches that can account for the direction of the
spectatorial eye via the ear?

CFP: Contemporary Forms and Conditions of Entertainment Media (9/25/03; journal issue)

Wednesday, August 13, 2003 - 10:02pm

Call for Papers: Journal issue

Superhuman, Supernatural, Superlative, or Simply Super Entertainment? :
Contemporary forms and conditions of entertainment media

Materiality aside, the entertainment media possess a refractory
nature: they are often obstinate, stubborn, wayward, perverse, and
disobedient, refusing to be pinned down by critical responses that
seek to homogenize their nature. For this special issue of the
Refractory Journal, we are interested in critical and theoretical
discussions of the forms / conditions / relationships of contemporary
entertainment media products / industries that may include films,
comic books, computer games or theme parks.

of celebrity to become a Western cultural force of the late-twentieth and
early twenty-first centuries. As she show nears its much anticipated
end--though its endless reproduction in syndication seems inevitable--it
seem appropriate to produce an anthology that evaluate the multifaceted
influences and implications of Oprah.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
