deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 10, 2016

Adaptation Studies is a growing field of research that addresses a significant subset of the intersection of film and literature, in which, as Maureen Quinn puts it, literature and film are studied as "two interdependent partial texts that become a new whole." This session invites papers that explore the many facets of adaptation studies, including literature adapted to film, film to video games, and film to textual works. Papers that engage some aspect of the conference theme of "Archives, Properties, Libraries" are especially welcome.

To submit a paper proposal for this session, or one of the many other approved PAMLA sessions, please go to: http://www.pamla.org/2016/topic-areas

Transfusions and Transductions: Science and Performance as Permeable Disciplines

updated: 
Monday, May 23, 2016 - 9:07am
American Society of Theatre Research, November 2016
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Transmit, transmute, transduce, transfuse: scientific and medical discourses have long relied upon the prefix “trans” to convey the mutability and permeability of living organisms, distant or tiny objects, and inorganic matter. Change is both a celebrated result of scientific advancements and an ominous harbinger of malignancies, disruptions, and decay. As with the clinical laboratory and astronomical observatory, the theatre serves as a reflexive and generative site of transformations, a place to penetrate barriers and test innovative ideas, approaches, and practices. This working session places transdisciplinarity at the core of its mission to identify and explore meaningful convergences of the fields of science and theatre.

Cinema 8 CFP: Marx’s Philosophy

updated: 
Monday, May 23, 2016 - 9:07am
Cinema: Journal of Philosophy and the Moving Image
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 15, 2016

Cinema: Journal of Philosophy and the Moving Image invites submissions for its 8th issue devoted to the philosophy of Karl Marx and its links with cinematic art.

Marxism, as a tool for social analysis and transformation, has influenced politicized and progressive filmmakers such as Sergei Eisenstein and Sembène Ousmane, in theory and in practice, as well as shaped theoretical discussions around film and history, aesthetics, economics, and ideology. Key topics of this discussion have been reproducible art and active collective experience (Walter Benjamin) and cultural and social hegemony (Antonio Gramsci), among others.

A Woman Well Reputed? Porcia/Portia from Antiquity to the Renaissance

updated: 
Monday, May 23, 2016 - 9:08am
Renaissance Society of America
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

Cato’s daughter; Brutus’ wife.  This panel will consider the figure of Porcia in the Renaissance, where she is to be found in a wide range of cultures and genres.  From the earliest accounts, Porcia has been something of a a paradox: heroic and vulnerable; the masculine soul who is also the devoted wife.   No woman in history can have passed into legend more closely defined by her menfolk; let’s give her some room of her own.

 

Topics might include, but are certainly not limited to:

 

National traditions (eg. Spanish lyrical Porcias; French tragic Porcias)

Exemplary Porcias

Porcia in the visual arts

Female suicide: strength or weakness?

Gender transgression
