SIGHTLINES - University of Toronto Cinema Studies Graduate Student Conference

updated: 
Thursday, November 19, 2015 - 6:21pm
Cinema Studies Graduate Student Union

Our conference, Sightlines, takes into consideration the sound [saɪt]* and all that it encompasses. While the concept of sight has been paramount to film scholarship since its inception, site and cite have remained lesser concerns. No longer. Our conference will bask in the unintentional interplay between these concepts, revel in their strange possibility for juxtaposition and unseen fecundity. Collision, then, guides our sightline; what strange children will be borne out of this chaos?

Translation/Transnation: Languages, Geographies, Genders

Texas Tech University Comparative Literature Program

Central to the Latin word translatio is the notion of 'carrying across' or crossing boundaries. Translation is fundamental to effective human communication, but translation requires more than just moving between two languages. When we translate, we cross many kinds of boundaries – political, linguistic, geographic, and gendered. Thus, whether literary, linguistic, media-based, or artistic, communicative acts require reliable interpreters in order to "carry across" their intended meanings. Yet, this "carrying across" can result in unintended loss and gain, even with the most skillful of interpreters. When a literary work, a piece of art, an idea, or a system moves across boundaries, what is left behind? What resists translation? What is added?

Early Modern Black Studies: A Critical Anthology

updated: 
Thursday, November 19, 2015 - 8:56am
edited volume

We are seeking submissions for a collection of essays tentatively titled Early Modern Black Studies: A Critical Anthology. Inspired by and modeled after interdisciplinary studies such as Black Queer Studies and Shakesqueer: A Companion to the Works of Shakespeare, this edited volume stages a conversation between two fields—Early Modern Studies and Black Studies—that traditionally have had little to say to each other. This disconnect is the product of current scholarly assumptions about a lack of archival evidence that limits what we can say about those of African descent in earlier historical periods. This proposed volume posits that the limitations are not in the archives but in the methods we have constructed for locating and examining those archives.
