[UPDATE] Consuming the Past: Library Resources for PGRs - An Interdisciplinary Conference and Training Day

Durham, Newcastle and Northumbria Universities

As researchers we 'consume' texts, reading, interpreting and reusing material found in archives or specialist electronic resources. Libraries are a key tool in this process. Library-based research is no longer restricted to the book, but also encompasses archived materials, electronic databases and local resources. This conference provides an opportunity to explore both the practical and theoretical issues arising from attempts to understand the past: training sessions will investigate the use of archival resources in the arts and humanities whilst panellists will also consider how texts themselves conceptualise and appropriate the past.

CINESONIKA: The First International Film and Video Festival of Innovative Sound Design

The theme of this international film and video festival is to celebrate the soundtrack. Usually in cinema festivals there is a fixation on movie stars, or captivating imagery, or the literary qualities of screenplays, or the abstract concepts of film theory. Sound tends to be relatively unvalorized in moving-image making. The intent of the festival is to give attention to innovative work in the creation of film and video soundtracks, and to give due credit to the importance of audio in audiovisual media.

Representing the Sack of Rome, RSA 2011, Montreal, March 24-26 (deadline extension)

Jessica Goethals, New York University; Aimee Ng, Columbia University

André Chastel famously argued that Italian artists greeted the 1527 Sack of Rome with silence and self-censorship. And yet in other arenas we find a chorus of voices attempting to define, decipher, register, and comprehend the fall of Rome and its individual and collective impact. This session will examine representations of the Sack and its aftermath in all historical and cultural mediums and from all national origins. Projects that examine predictions of the Sack are also welcome. This session will attempt to challenge the idea that the Sack was the end of the Renaissance by looking at the event as a stimulus for new and often self-aware cultural production or revitalization.

Please send a 250 word abstract and a brief cv by May 18th.
