STRANGE NEW WORLDS: NEW FRONTIERS IN CINEMA AND TELEVISION
A POSTGRADUATE CONFERENCE
18th June 2015

Issues of technology and film have long been considered fundamental bedfellows. Studies of technology's impact both on the cinema – from the coming of sound and colour to the rise of digital media – and within its films have shaped much scholarly thinking. Indeed, representations of technology's effects on modern and future life shine a light on our most elemental fears.

In keeping with the conference theme of Modernism & Revolution, this panel seeks to explore modernism's little magazines as sites of provocation and revolt. The magazine communities were hotbeds of controversial figures and politics, and their publications challenged national programs and social mores via radical ideologies and aesthetics. Of particular interest to this panel is the interplay between their innovative experimental aesthetics and their cultural, social, and political interests that included socialism, anarchy, feminism, women's suffrage, sex, race, nationalism, militarization and labor. Panel papers might focus on The Crisis, The Dial, The Freewoman, The Little Review, The Messenger, The Others, The Liberator, The Masses—to name a few.

Just over a decade ago, Dana Phillips (in)famously attacked ecocritics for uncritically borrowing terms and ideas from the discipline of ecology, which, he argued, is itself a "less than fully coherent field with a very checked past and fairly uncertain future." While controversial, Phillips's critique sparked important discussions about ecocriticism's methodology, especially its claim to interdisciplinarity. So-called "second wave" ecocritics reexamined the field's founding assumptions; a period of self-assessment propelled ecocriticism toward a more rigorous engagement with the sciences as well as the humanities.

For all its many urban topographies, the literary landscape of modernism contains a startling array of greens. From William Carlos Williams's representations of Garret Mountain Park, to Peter's reflections on Mrs. Dalloway in Regents Park or Wallace Stevens' frequent use of Elizabeth Park throughout his oeuvre, planned green spaces play an overlooked role in the development of modernism. We propose that thinking with and through public greens leads to a fresh and often more complex understanding of modernism's tangled engagements with arts, politics, material culture, bodies, and the nature-culture divide.

When politics, arts, history, ethics or philosophy are judged by their ability to disrupt what is visible and sayable, is there a danger that the potential political efficacy in remaining hidden is ignored and the possibility of intervention/action for the already unseen is inhibited? How do artistic practices reflect and engage in strategic invisibility? What are the artistic and political intersections of acting invisible? What kinds of visibility are afforded to whom? How can research approach invisibility without eliminating the invisibility it purports to study? Can there be a methodology of working around (in)visibility and if so what claims can it make to validity?

[UPDATE, Keynotes added] THE REAL AND THE INTERMEDIAL, Oct 23-24, 2015 (deadline May 25) Film and Media Studies Conference

Following up on the themes introduced in our previous conferences dedicated to "film in the post-media age", the "cinema of sensations", "rethinking intermediality in the digital age", and "figurations of intermediality in film", we invite you to address one of the most puzzling phenomena of contemporary media and film: the intertwining of the illusion of reality with effects of intermediality, connecting the experience of a palpable, everyday world with artificiality, abstraction and the awareness of multiple mediations.

Etymologically, vulnerability refers to a "wound" (from the Latin vulnus, vulneris). Somebody is said to be vulnerable when they have been wounded, injured, hurt or harmed. Or indeed when they are in a state of greater weakness, more fragile, and therefore more easily wounded, injured, hurt or harmed. Vulnerability can be physical, moral and social. An individual, a group, a community, even a country can be vulnerable.
