The online journal "Jura Gentium Cinema" ( 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.

The Urban Catwalk: Fashion and Street Culture (April 23 2011)

Thursday, July 22, 2010 - 4:00pm
madison moore /Yale University

What is street style, and what is the relationship between style, "the street," and popular culture? How have the Internet, digital cameras and other technologies impacted how we understand the way we dress? In what ways does street style engage with broader issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality?

The Urban Catwalk: Fashion and Street Culture, a one-day symposium at Yale University, aims to investigate and openly discuss the relationships between street style and identity. We are interested in papers that approach street style from a contemporary lens, but also encourage papers with more of an historical perspective.
