Rolling Thunder Revue

Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - 3:40pm
Comparative Drama Conference (April 2-4, 2020, in Orlando)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2019

In summer of 2019 Netflix released the highly anticipated Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese. Scorsese takes footage shot before and during Dylan’s legendary concert tour, combines it with later interviews of principal figures (real and fake) involved with the 1975 shows, and adds in his own cinematic sleight-of-hand, producing a film which attempts to recapture the carnivalesque spirit of Dylan’s travelling revue.

I seek papers for a panel examining the dramatic dimensions of the Rolling Thunder Revue. Subjects might include, but are not limited to, the following:

CFP: Cine-feminisms and the Academy Symposium

UNSW Sydney, 12-13th December 2019

The contemporary media landscape is shaped by increasing precarity and awareness of gendered issues. The global screen industry is grappling with the cultural and industrial shifts precipitated by the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. For some, the Harvey Weinstein revelations and subsequent scandal resulted in a re-evaluation of the gendered operation of Hollywood. The industry has responded on the red carpet, through the media and in film festival juries. What role do – and can – forms of film feminisms (or cine-feminism) play within this context?

Gender Equality and Sustainability: Agnès Varda’s Sustaining Legacy

Friday, September 6, 2019 - 4:14am
Istanbul Bilgi University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 1, 2019

İstanbul Bilgi University is launching a series of annual events dedicated to the intersecting themes of gender equality and sustainability under various academic disciplines. This year’s event will consider the framework of film studies. The inspiration for this inaugural symposium comes from the tireless gleaner of images Agnès Varda, whose legacy of female subjectivity spans more than six decades, from her first film La Pointe Courte (1955) to her final documentary Varda par Agnès (2019). An opening event launching the series will be followed by a one-day symposium to mark the anniversary of Varda’s passing, taking place at İstanbul Bilgi University, March 27-28, 2020
