The Forum Prize 2015 – Call for Articles

The Forum for Modern Language Studies Prize competition 2015 invites submissions on the subject of translating cultures.

In an increasingly transnational, multi-cultural and multi-lingual world, translation has a crucial role to play in inter-cultural understanding, to which research in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures makes a vital contribution. Translation has long been at the heart of LLC teaching and research activity and is a thriving area of interdisciplinary scholarship across a broad range of historical and geographical contexts.

Teaching is one of the most challenging professions because it brings individuals of different backgrounds (teachers and learners) into a very close relationship. The process of teaching/learning arguably constitutes the most important aspect of this relationship, but it is intimately connected with other complex personal, social, cultural, and even historical and political factors. A teacher is not a neutral entity, nor does s/he teach in a social, cultural, and historical vacuum. Similarly, the learner is not a tabula rasa, subject to the teacher's inscriptions. Inevitably, the process of education will elicit critical questions or even resistance.

University of Massachusetts-Amherst (English Graduate Organization)

We make assumptions based on bodies all the time: what bodies are
normative, strange, dangerous, fragile, familiar, foreign, and so on. The bodies we see are always-already constructed and commodified within various cultural marketplaces. Bodies function as currencies, some of which have more cultural capital than others. This cultural capital lends visibility to some bodies, while rendering others invisible.

Call for Papers/ Projects - ATHLETICISM (Deadline: 1/30/15)

The word 'athletic' derives from the Greek, athlēō ('compete for a prize'). In this schema, the 'prize' is the thing competed for, but this can be defined in many ways: as a gift, a kiss, a drop of blood, or a ribbon. We are often told that the prize is not important but participation is. The athlete models subjectivity, the body, desire, social relations, matter and chance in order to achieve a measure of success, recognition, mastery, the deferral of death and emptiness, a place in history, an apotheosis of self-love, among other things.

Provocation as Art. Scandal, Shock and Sexuality in Contemporary Visual Culture, 2nd Ekphrasis Conference 28-29 May, 2015

full name / name of organization: 
Babeș-Bolyai University, Faculty of Theater and Television, Department of Cinema and Media, Cluj, Romania

The Faculty of Theater and Television of the Babeș-Bolyai University is announcing the Call for Papers for the Annual Cinema and Visual Culture Studies Conference held May 25-29 2015. This 2015 conference is designed to discuss the irreverent nature of art, cinema and visual production in various media environments. The purpose of the conference is to deal with the various obstructions of the creative spirit, both in the context of the passivity of the consumer society and in a highly censored and politically correct environment. Often art is vilified, accused of blasphemy and obscenity, threatened with violence, prosecuted and even imprisoned, yet the function of art has to be a source for scandal and provocation.
