American cinema has long been preoccupied with depictions of the foreigner, and mainstream films typically stage scenarios where the resolution to eject or assimilate the foreigner is celebrated as a moment of solidarity for Americans. Our panel will explore representations of the foreigner in contemporary American cinema, and we invite contributions that pay specific attention to films that address:

- Images of the foreigner in the immediate aftermath of 9/11
- Foreign terrorists/terrorism during the War in Afghanistan
- American responses to refugee crises around the globe
- The impact of the 2016 election and Donald Trump's presidency

SCMS 2019- Network Aesthetics

Wednesday, August 8, 2018 - 11:06am

Our panel is focused upon networks, and the ways in which cinema and media have responded to the difficulty in representing complete models of contemporary networked existence. Our first speaker will be exploring how networks are represented geographically, specifically examining the second season of True Detective. In the series California is characterized as an infrastructural-economic network. This network poses significant problems for policing networks trying to mediate criminal activity that moves fluidly across borders and behind political obfuscation. In the series, effective policing is part and parcel with efforts to maintain a stable sense of identity complicated by the incongruity between personal and professional networks.

Contributions are now being accepted for a new edited book titled ‘Capture Japan: Visual Culture and the Global Imagination from 1952 to the Present’. The book aims to analyse, deconstruct and challenge representations of Japan in a variety of different visual media such as cinema, documentary film, photography, visual art, anime, manga, comics, television or advertising. Through a series of case studies by an international group of experts in the field, the book will highlight the institutional framework that has allowed certain types of images of Japan to be promoted, while others have been suppressed.
