The Cultural Studies and Literature Division is inviting proposals for complete panels for the CSA (US) Annual Conference, which will be held at Columbia College, Chicago, IL March 24-26, 2011. We welcome all panels that take the conference topic ("New Directions in Cultural Studies") as an occasion to generate innovative analyses of the methodological and theoretical relationship between cultural and literary studies. In particular, we are interested in panels that interrogate the relationship between cultural and literary studies as it presents itself in the current social, economic, political, intellectual and disciplinary climate, as well as in relation to new information/communication technologies and infrastructures.

War Cinema

We are looking for contributions to a special issue, "War Cinema," of Jura Gentium Cinema, an online journal
that deals with film, globalization, and issues of social justice. This issue will deal with war cinema and
address question such as the following: how does cinema move between the national and the global
in imagining, reflecting, fictionalizing, or inventing life during wartime? How does film confront, evade
or displace issues of war and wartime? How can we think about both film and war in a global context?
What categories of social cohesion or contestation have emerged from the way cinema has staged
wartime?

'Who are you?' said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, 'I—I hardly know, sir, just at present—at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'

Panel Proposal | Ninth ASLE Biennial Conference
June 21-26, 2011 | Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana

Abstract Deadline: October 22nd, 2010

Despite pressing concerns about diminishing resources, garbage continues to accumulate in landfills, oceans, and toxic sites. Although the international waste trade is booming, those peripheral to the world economy—slumdwellers, rural poor, refugees—find themselves reduced to the status of the detritus in which they often live and work.
