Court and Spark: An international symposium on the work of Joni Mitchell.

School of English and Journalism,
University of Lincoln, U.K.
July 3rd, 2015.

*Call for papers*

Joni Mitchell is widely recognised as an innovative, influential, much-loved and much-imitated artist. From her debut album Song to a Seagull to her most recent Shine, Mitchell's music: her tunings, her lyrics, her scope has drawn critical and popular acclaim. And yet, scholarly attention to her work has been relatively limited. This symposium will attend to Mitchell as a figure worthy of sustained critical thought and appreciation.

Four times in competition at Cannes since 2009 (with J'ai tué ma mère) and once in official competition at Venice with Tom à la ferme (2013), Dolan has been a crucial player in the film festival circuit for the past five years, and a spokesperson for the inventiveness of Quebec cinema in the international context.

The Velvet Light Trap #77: Performance and the Body - Deadline January 15, 2015

The Velvet Light Trap

Historically, studies of performance have often been tied to star images, focusing on issues of celebrity in professional, public, and private spaces. As a result, a large body of research has explored how the star is constructed through extratextual discourses and how this off-screen persona may shape perceptions of on-screen performance. However, scholarly attention to performers has been shifting from star image and celebrity to acting and performance. Several collections on film acting and performance - most recently Cynthia Baron and Sharon Marie Carnicke's Reframing Screen Performance (2008) and Aaron Taylor's Theorizing Film Acting (2012) - have extended our knowledge of the historical evolution of acting practices.
