CFP: Borderlands and Breaking Points: Tension Across the 49th Parallel

Edited by Kyle Conway and Timothy Pasch

For a certain class of phenomena, the logic of the national border--that is, the logic of the controlled passage from one side to the other--does not hold. Crime operates by definition outside of the legal frameworks on either side of a border. Rivers flow across borders, regardless of the actions of the governments whose territories they affect. Native communities, in particular those on the U.S.-Canadian border, enjoy sovereign status that gives their members special rights when crossing the border.

CFP: Call for Contributions on "the depiction of Indigenous bodies"

updated: 
Saturday, July 24, 2010 - 2:46pm
Jura Gentium Cinema

The online journal "Jura Gentium Cinema" (www.jgcinema.org) is seeking articles (3,000-5,000 words) for a special issue on the depiction of Indigenous bodies in motion pictures, from "Apocalypto" to the "Whale Rider".

The articles should critically address cinematic representations of Indigenous cultures that either idealize or negate the Other, while also drawing attention to how films subvert and re-write these representations as part of Indigenous people effort to reclaim their own images and rendering on the silver screen.

Film reviews should be informative and evaluative, without being dismissive: that is, the reviewer should find some value in the work being reviewed.
