deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 21, 2017

This session will explore the intersection of film studies and history. We are looking for papers that explore filmic depictions of historical events, including motion pictures and television forms. Papers that foreground discussions of the accuracy, truthfulness, and ethics of filmic depiction, issues of historiography, and questions of the history of film-making itself are welcome. Since this year's conference theme also addresses sight, visuality, and ways of seeing, papers submitted that combine historical philosophies of film with the ontology of vision are also very welcome.

Transgender identities: questioning borders and binaries

South Atlantic Modern Language Association 2017 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 10, 2017

A growing awareness of transgender issues has exploded in recent years, especially after the high-profile gender reconstruction surgery of Caitlyn Jenner. The rising awareness has caused activism both for and against the transgender community, and forces us to question many of the binaries that permeate culture. Few issues question borders and transcend boundaries in as dramatic a fashion as current transgender concerns, so for the SAMLA 89 Conference, held in Atlanta, Ga from Nov 3-5, we are seeking abstracts exploring the conference theme of “Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture” as expressed through a transgender lens.

A return to the feminisms of the 1970s is one of the most salient dimensions of feminist studies to emerge over the last decade. This proposed volume seeks essays that reflect on this return—evident not only in academia, but in emergent activist feminisms of the 21st century—and speculate on what it means for feminist scholarship, politics, and cultural production.
