Food media have become exponentially popular throughout the 21st century, with growth in the production and consumption of digital ‘food porn,’ cookbooks and content in the food blog- and vlogospheres. Across these diverse formats, food media have long been recognized as artifacts that reference culturally- and historically-specific ideals of gender at the same time that they offer instructional food pedagogies. For instance, scholars have pointed out the links between food preparation rituals and the performance of gender from the hypermasculinization of barbeque to the feminized daintiness of baking desserts, and from ideas about the gendered organization of food labor to the embodied pleasures of food porn.

Brand placement in film and TV series

updated: 
Monday, February 12, 2018 - 12:56pm
University Paris 8
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

The research program MEDIA (TransCrit, EA 1569) is organizing a one-day workshop on brand placement in film and TV series. The workshop will be held at the University of Paris 8 on Friday 15 June 2018.

Neither an artistic choice nor a coincidence, brand placement started to be used as soon as the movie industry was created but in a moderate way. Due to the rising costs of film production, this financial partnership has progressively become unavoidable to such an extent that a certain number of Hollywood movies and series could not be produced without it. The same applies, perhaps even to a larger degree, to TV shows, even though their production mode sometimes places them side-by-side with regular TV commercials.

Theorising the Popular Conference 2018

Liverpool Hope University, July 11th-12th 2018

 

The Popular Culture Research Group at Liverpool Hope University is delighted to announce its eighth annual international conference, ‘Theorising the Popular’. Building on the success of previous years, the 2018 conference aims to highlight the intellectual originality, depth and breadth of ‘popular’ disciplines, as well as their academic relationship with and within ‘traditional’ subjects. One of its chief goals will be to generate debate that challenges academic hierarchies and cuts across disciplinary barriers.

MLA 2019: Postcolonial Textual Transactions and Critical Reception

updated: 
Friday, February 9, 2018 - 11:17am
MLA Africa since 1990 Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

In his 2001 book, The Postcolonial Exotic: Marketing the Margins, Graham Huggan contends that writers from formerly colonized societies negotiate their marginality and the “realpolitik of metropolitan economic dominance” by providing “exotic registers” and making them “palatable” for “predominantly metropolitan audiences” (viii). This non-guaranteed MLA session organized by The Africa Since 1990 forum invites submissions examining literary texts from the Global South that circulate well beyond their immediate contexts of production. To what extent is this circulation due to the exoticism that Huggan elaborates in his book? What other factors may be at work in the appreciation and appropriation of these works in new environments?
