Cinema: Journal of Philosophy and the Moving Image invites submissions for its 8th issue devoted to the philosophy of Karl Marx and its links with cinematic art.

Marxism, as a tool for social analysis and transformation, has influenced politicized and progressive filmmakers such as Sergei Eisenstein and Sembène Ousmane, in theory and in practice, as well as shaped theoretical discussions around film and history, aesthetics, economics, and ideology. Key topics of this discussion have been reproducible art and active collective experience (Walter Benjamin) and cultural and social hegemony (Antonio Gramsci), among others.

Transmit, transmute, transduce, transfuse: scientific and medical discourses have long relied upon the prefix “trans” to convey the mutability and permeability of living organisms, distant or tiny objects, and inorganic matter. Change is both a celebrated result of scientific advancements and an ominous harbinger of malignancies, disruptions, and decay. As with the clinical laboratory and astronomical observatory, the theatre serves as a reflexive and generative site of transformations, a place to penetrate barriers and test innovative ideas, approaches, and practices. This working session places transdisciplinarity at the core of its mission to identify and explore meaningful convergences of the fields of science and theatre.

Much of Walker Percy’s fiction and non-fiction writing is social commentary. At least two novels - Love in the Ruins and The Thanatos Syndrome - may be called dystopian or post-apocalyptic.  His numerous essays on race relations, on secular materialism, on misguided “self-help” books in a postmodern world seem to indicate that he suspected 20th century America was a dystopia itself.  Additionally, Walker Percy’s personal life included social action in his local community and through the Catholic Church.  Proposals addressing the SAMLA 88 theme "Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is It?" in Walker Percy’s fiction, non-fiction, or life are welcome.  Send 300-word abstracts, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Dr.

For its 25th annual meeting, the British Women Writers Conference invites papers and panel proposals considering the theme of “Generations.” As we look back on a quarter-century of feminist scholarship and practice within British Studies, we want to celebrate those who have defined the British Women Writers Association’s past and nurture those who will shape its future. Of course, even within literary traditions or scholarly networks, generational transitions are rarely ever easy or smooth. Such transitions may be accompanied by paradigm shifts, struggles to be heard, or difficulty letting go. We therefore welcome investigations into the complexities of generational exchange and transition in women’s writing.
