IL PARLAGGIO

 

This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages.

“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

Thinking Labor with Cinema

What can cinema teach us about labor, in the past, the present or the future? From Workers Leaving the Factory (Louis and Auguste Lumière and Harun Farocki) to the question of automation; from protest and resistance to the rhythms of the workday on screen, cinema has been a laboratory and incubator for ideas about work, value, time, energy, and capital. While this diacritics special issue will focus on cinema, we may also consider work that engages with other screen media cultures as long as cinema remains a point of reference. Essays may focus on specific films, genres, styles; or they may look more broadly at critical theories or limitations of the filmic apparatus to engage labor.

Beginning with the linguistic turn, there have been an increasing number of methodological “turns” in humanities-related fields, including the visual turn, the sonic turn, the corporeal turn, the spectral turn, the ontological turn, the non-human turn, the infrastructure turn, and so forth. This special issue of diacritics proposes to critically examine the phenomenon of the turn, focusing on the way in which it pivots on the juncture of a set of theoretical and methodological considerations. 

 We invite articles that:
