India is one of the few countries in the world to have a film censor board. And one of its recent casualties is a lesbian film significantly titled "Unfreedom." The current government has upped the ante by extending the ban culture of censorship from the aesthetic realm to the realm of everyday consumption with the ban on beef. The ban on Jafar Panahi, the Iranian filmmaker, continues and he continues to express himself in his art form in house arrest. The recent Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris has put the limelight back on censorship.

Today more than ever fairy tales permeate pop culture, literature, music, fine arts, opera, ballet and cinema. Speaking of the history of stories and especially fairy-tales, we may say that the Pot of Soup, the Cauldron of Story, has always been boiling for centuries. Dwarves have always been a recurring image and a character from the fairy tales to the novels.

Call for Submissions: The Hermeneutics of Hell: Devilish Visions and Visions of the Devil in World Literature

"There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors, and hail a materialist or magician with the same delight." C. S. Lewis. The Screwtape Letters

[DEADLINE EXTENDED: JUNE 6, 2015] Whose (French) Renaissance? RSA Boston, March 31 - April 2, 2016

Wednesday, June 3, 2015 - 1:37pm
Renaissance Society of America

Complicating the notion of the 'French Renaissance,' this panel seeks papers that explore the dynamic relationship between Italian artists and their French patrons, audiences, and counterparts in the fifteenth- and sixteenth-century courts of Charles VIII, Francis I, Henry II and Henry IV. We are interested in investigations into the ways in which these artists realized their royal commissions by participating in, subverting, and creating artistic dialogues. Rather than simply importing visual language, humanist discourses, and artistic debates into French contexts, Italian artists and their French patrons mediated different processes of material, contextual, and formal translations.

{UPDATE] [DEADLINE EXTENDED: July 1] Radical Kinship

updated: 
Wednesday, June 3, 2015 - 12:53pm
Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens
when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign?
When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and
fatherhood?
Can we undomesticate kinship?
