November 7, 2017 will mark the first anniversary of the death of Leonard Cohen. Known predominantly for his music, Cohen’s artistic contributions extend into the genres of poetry, fiction, and visual art. This year’s SAMLA conference theme, “High Art/ Low Art: Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture,” presents a timely and appropriate venue for an examination and celebration of the artist’s life and work.
This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages.
“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.
For its next edition, FINE would like to invite practitioners, educators, teachers, students and scientists to submit their work on the following broad topics:
- Education in the age of technology
- Innovative teaching practices across the disciplines
- Innovation and creativity in teaching
- Transforming traditional education
The journal encourages the sharing of ideas from a wide spectrum of disciplines and educational practitioiners, specialists and researchers. The articles are peer reviewed using a double-blind peer-review process (at least two anonymous reviewers).
Call for chapter proposals: Animation and advertising
Proposals are invited for chapters in a new edited collection on the topic of ‘Animation and Advertising’.
In the last two decades, scholarly attention to transmedia storytelling (TS) has increased dramatically. Approaches to the topic vary widely, ranging from a focus on the effects of TS on narratives and texts (Harvey, Mittell); explorations of paratexts, metatexts, intertexts, and pretexts (Gray, Clarke); and the increase in fan participation and agency with regard to narrative agency since the transmedia turn (Jenkins, Geraghty, Hills). More recently, scholars such as Raúl Rodríguez-Ferrándiz have returned to what might be considered the beginning, looking to Gerard Genette’s discussion of paratexts and building on Genette’s print-bound ideas with transmediated frames.
