Audiovisualtopia: A Conference on the Contemporary Screen Scene

updated: 
Tuesday, June 9, 2015 - 4:02pm
Brian Goss / Department of Communication, Saint Louis University, Madrid Campus

CALL for PAPERS: One hundred twenty years after the Lumiere Brothers' Arrival of a Train at Ciotat Station / L'arrivée d'un train en gare de La Ciotat and about 60 years after the insinuation of television...into living rooms across the industrialized world, contemporary societies are saturated with audiovisual culture. More recently, the rise of widely affordable techno-substrates for production (digital photography) and exhibition (youtube, proliferating film festivals) are clearly enabling toward the "democratization" of audiovisual sophistication, such that the committed college sophomore can readily produce polished short films. In other words, there is much to celebrate!

CFP: Literature and Censorship (Deadline: September 30, 2015)

Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry (Vol 2 Issue 2)

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.

Trafficking Memory: Women, Catastrophe, and the Limits of the Transnational

updated: 
Friday, June 5, 2015 - 12:45pm
Stephenie Young and Adele Parker

If one measure of the term catastrophe lies in its power to subvert existing systems, we ask how this concept impacts certain memory-narratives produced by contemporary women writers and artists in the wake of human-made catastrophes in the 20th and 21st centuries.

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
