Videographic criticism has recently emerged as an exciting new mode of film scholarship, allowing one to write not simply on films, but with them. Through experimentation with a wide-range of styles and affects, many of which lie outside what is able to be expressed by the written word, those practicing videographic criticism have just begun to explore its possibilities. In this special issue of [in]Transition, we aim to provide a space for the application of this emerging and generative mode of scholarly expression to Latin American cinema and film cultures.

NeMLA 47th Annual Convention

La tavola rotonda si propone di discutere il processo che dalla Filologia può portare alla Critica letteraria, con particolare attenzione alla metodologia e ai "nuovi" strumenti di lavoro (internet, archivi digitali, ecc.). Ci si interrogherà sulla relazione tra questi due campi di studio: il filologo può o deve essere anche un critico e viceversa? Si sollecitano contributi su studi e lavori conclusi o in corso di svolgimento concernenti il diciannovesimo, ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo.
