High Art/Low Art: Boundaries of Genre, Character, and Viewer in Popular and Independent Film, SAMLA 89 [proposal due June 1, 2017]

updated: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:14pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association Film Studies Group
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

Across independent, international, and Hollywood film communities, notions of boundary continue to articulate and challenge how we engage with film. As viewers, critics, and theorists, how might we problematize boundaries of genre, character, and viewer in popular and/or independent film? And when boundaries separating high from low art begin to dissolve, how do we trace dissolutions and reformulations of boundary between popular and independent film? In keeping with the theme of high art/low art: border and boundaries in popular culture, this panel seeks papers addressing liminality in writing, directing, visual style, and performance in popular and independent film.

Outlaw Politics: MLA 2018 Special Session Proposal

updated: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:14pm
Alexander L. Kaufman
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

How has the concept of the outlaw been formed from legal and political traditions, both from the Anglo-American perspective and from elsewhere? Presently, how does the physical or virtual outlaw serve as a form  of resistance, dissent, and transgression in literature, media, and art? This panel solicits papers that discuss how outlaws, whether in specific texts or as a general tradition, have been appropriated and used in a specifically political context which is simultaneously intensely local and yet, through its connections to a larger international tradition, is also global in its scope.  This is a proposed Special Session for MLA 2018 (NYC, 4-7 January). Please send abstracts of 250-300 words by March 15, 2017 to Alexander L.

John Berger Now

 

12-13th September, 2017 School of Humanities, Canterbury Christ Church University.

 

The Conference:

‘The death of the artist is a dividing line’ wrote John Berger in 1966. ‘Every artist’s work changes when he dies. And finally no one remembers what his work was like when he was alive … [His work] will have become evidence from the past, instead of being … a possible preparation for something to come.’
