February 10-12, 2011 - Turin (Italy) INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM WWW.World Wide Women Globalization, genders and languages.

Tuesday, July 6, 2010 - 5:43am
CIRSDe - Research Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies

The conference, organised by the Research Centre for Women's and Gender Studies (CIRSDe), aims to promote cultural exchanges among researchers interested in the gender perspectives in their work. At the same time, it's an occasion to relaunch the debate on how Women's and Gender studies can be integrated into traditional academic approaches.

The topics we intend to discuss are: globalization, cultural exchanges, transculturality, migrations, languages, economic development and the decline in importance of national boundaries. It will be necessary to adopt a gender perspective and an interdisciplinary approach in discussing these subjects.

The different topics will be analysed in the following parallel sessions :

[UPDATE] Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference 2nd Futurist Theory and Fiction: Fear, Horror, and Terror(ism)

Monday, July 5, 2010 - 11:28pm
Lee Baxter & David Briggs / SETS Department of University of Guelph

Stephen King once stated: "everything we do has a history. No matter where you come in on any situation, you are not coming in at the beginning." King's observation diagnoses a primary function of horror fiction: to remind contemporary audiences of their placement within this historical, gothic continuum. Horror narratives may, as Robin Wood famously suggested, reflect "our collective nightmares" but this collective is by no means limited to the contemporary moment for fleshing out these nightmares. Horror implicates readers and viewers by exhuming the past—monsters return, bodies rise from graves, and ghosts haunt the present. Furthermore within the Gothic imagination new terrors lurk beyond our social and technological horizons.

Post-War Serbian Film—2011 SCMS Panel in New Orleans (03/10-03/13)

Monday, July 5, 2010 - 5:08pm
Zoran Samardzija, Columbia College Chicago & Steven Shaviro, Wayne State University

This panel explores Serbian Film post-1999 and the NATO bombings that marked the end to a decade of wars throughout the former Yugoslavia. Since then, Serbian films may not have received the same international attention as those released during the wars, perhaps because the former Yugoslav Republics and the Balkans no longer hold the same perverse fascination in the Western imaginary. Yet, the last decade has produced the most disturbing and challenging films since the Yugoslav "Black Wave" cinemas of the 1960s. Prospective panelists are invited to submit proposals on recent Serbian film in relation to topics including but not limited to:

• The NATO bombings

• The overthrow of Slobodan Milošević and his subsequent Hague trial

#3 -

I'm writing on behalf of a new reflective art journal, #3 , setting up here in London. As a journal, we are invested in providing a critical exhibition space through publication for artists from all over the word, dispersing critical/academic and creative reflection on art/architecture/aesthetics, with a particular intellectual focus on questions of spatiality/geography/physical structure/environment. Our forthcoming collaborations include explorations from an collaborative art studio in Kenya's Kibera slum, and comparative reflections on Cambodian temple architecture.
