[UPDATE] Speaking is Being: Modern Transnational and Transcultural Francophonie (NeMLA March 17-20, 2016; Abstracts due 9-30-15)

How and where do Francophone voices speak? Where are they silent? How do linguistic and cultural expressions define what is French and what is Francophone? Are these two terms simultaneously inclusive and exclusive of one another and of other selves, places and languages that they encounter? This NeMLA panel hopes to explore the relationship between identity and voice in digital media (web, social platforms, e-books, audio, video, etc.) in French-speaking spaces that cross national, linguistic and/or cultural borders either intentionally or implicitly. Does digital media offer ways to investigate Francophone identities not available in other forms?

CFP: Special Guest-Edited Issue of [in]Transition on Latin American cinema and film cultures

updated: 
Wednesday, September 16, 2015 - 4:05pm
[in]Transition

Guest Editors: Nicolas Poppe, Middlebury College
Michael Talbott, Castleton University

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.
