CECC - Research Centre for Communication and Culture

Although migratory movements have always existed throughout history, migration is nowadays usually associated with globalization and the resulting increase in the global mobility of people and information. In contrast to other forms of movement, migration normally refers to a relatively permanent displacement of individuals or groups from one region or country to another. However, migration describes a variety of experiences, referring to different groups of individuals, such as refugees, economic or environmental migrants and cosmopolitan elites with distinct social, political and legal status.

CFP Ecopoetics: Global Poetries and Ecologies, Deadline April 15, 2016

Sunday, February 14, 2016 - 6:49pm
Isabel Campos / Montana Tech of U of Montana

This is a call for article-length scholarly contributions for inclusion in a proposed anthology broadly focused on the entangled relationship between poetries and ecologies.

Jonathan Skinner's edited journal, ecopoetics, published between 2001 and 2007, constituted a fertile platform of enquiry into the relationship between poetry and the environment, its meaning, possibilities, modus operandi, processes, objectives, tactics, and responses. Contributors proposed and presented writing that often opposed the traditional stance of nature poetry, which seeks to possess the natural world through the deployment of the word, casting a figurative net on a vanquished wilderness.

ReFocus: The Films of William Castle. Abstracts due May 15, 2016.

Sunday, February 14, 2016 - 5:38pm
Murray Leeder

William Castle will likely forever be remembered first as "The Master of Gimmicks" and "The Abominable Showman": the director of exciting gimmick films like Macabre (1958), House on Haunted Hill (1959), The Tingler (1959), 13 Ghosts (1960), Homicidal (1961) and Mr. Sardonicus (1961), and the maestro behind the Emergo, Percepto and Illusion-O, the punishment poll and the life insurance policy against death by fright. But there was much more to his Hollywood career than this cycle, however innovative and indelible it may have been. He directed more than fifty films between 1944 and 1974, and produced both The Lady from Shanghai (1947) and Rosemary's Baby (1968).
