Call for papers

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

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.

Social Discourse, Mythos, and Visual Culture

Monday, February 20, 2017 - 2:10pm
Maryland Institute College of Art
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2017

We invite papers from graduate students and emerging scholars that address the ways in which visual culture, the built environment, and electronic media affect and inform our perceptions of collective memory and/or identities. This symposium is devoted to a consideration of the role that popular visual culture plays in shaping critical discourse with the aim of better understanding the world around us.

For example, what role do monuments play in forming public memory around specific historical events? How do adaptations of film, comics, and other forms of popular art address classic themes, such as myth? As many popular artforms are now available digitally, how do professional and amateur artists respond?
