War Cinema : Final call for abstracts

Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 4:31am
Jura Gentium Cinema

We are looking for contributions to a special issue, "War Cinema," of JG 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?

Rethinking Baudrillard and Feminist Theory [deadline 11/1/2010] ACLA 2011, Vancouver, 3/31-4/3/2011

Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 12:42am
Panel proposal for American Comparative Literature Association annual meeting

From Jane Gallop's 'French Theory and the Seduction of Feminism', Meaghan Morris' 'Room 101 or A Few Worst Things in The World' to Douglas Kellner's 'Baudrillard's Affront to Feminism,' the French sociologist Jean Baudrillard has been widely condemned in the 80s and 90s as an anti-feminist philosopher. This criticism makes some sense: Baudrillard's major mistake has indeed been his caricaturizing of feminism and feminist theory as mere emancipation or equal rights discourse.

Writing in Online Courses: Disciplinary Differences--Call for Papers for a Proposed Edited Collection (Jan. 31, 2011)

Wednesday, September 22, 2010 - 4:41pm
Phoebe Jackson and Chris Weaver, William Paterson University

Writing teachers know that writing itself is not a neutral act of articulating knowledge, but a highly contested act of constructing oneself in relationship to one's environment. We are also aware of how online spaces differ from traditional spaces and how those differences affect the way that teachers and students construct themselves in relationship to each other. This edited collection will look at how teachers in different disciplines have grappled with these issues and what they can tell us about writing as an act of negotiating identities.

Possible topics:

Queer Encounters in Afro-Diasporic Space, ALA, April 13-17, 2011, Athens, Ohio

Wednesday, September 22, 2010 - 1:22pm
African Literature Association

African literature has often envisioned queer encounters within the frame of Afro-diaspora. Wole Soyinka's Joe Golder from The Interpreters (1965), the emblematic figure for such encounters, is an African American returning from the "other side" of diaspora. Simultaneously, travel across Afro-diasporic geographies frequently queers African protagonists, as their bodies and desires extend in new spaces and assume new configurations. Those who travel from Africa to Europe, the U.S., and the Caribbean experience their desires as unruly, refusing to follow the ethno-racial demands and sex-gender object choices their personal and collective histories dictate.
