SCMS 2015 Proposed Panel: "Toward a Critical Transnational Cinema," deadline June 30

updated:

Joy Schaefer & Beth Tsai, Stony Brook University

CFP for SCMS 2015 Proposed Panel: "Toward a Critical Transnational Cinema"

Society for Cinema and Media Studies annual conference, March 2015, Montreal, Canada

There is an emerging preference in film studies for the term "transnational" instead of "world" or "global" cinema. Key topics within transnational film studies include border crossing, migration, diaspora, mobility, and the circulation of cultures and capitals.
And yet, the concept of transnational cinema is used more often than it is defined. What exactly is transnational cinema, and how can we come to use this term most productively?

[UPDATE: Deadline Extension] "The Undead" Abstracts due 6/13 (for SAMLA 11/7-9))

Lynne M. Simpson, College English Association

The Undead as Sustainable (Academic) Resource

"ZOMBIES are a value stock. They are wordless and oozing and brain dead, but they're an ever-expanding market with no glass ceiling," writes Chuck Closterman for The New York Times. Thanks in part to the commodification of the zombie and vampire, the undead prove rich fodder for the academic as well. Papers that explore the undead (in any manifestation) as cultural, ecological, political, or, of course, commoditized figure are welcome. Please send abstracts of around 500 words to Lynne Simpson at lsimpson@presby.edu by June 1, 2014.

The Literature of Loss

Tuesday, June 3, 2014 - 1:50pm
Dr Deirdre Flynn / Limerick Literary Weekend / Mary Immaculate College

The Literature of Loss

Irish literature is filled with loss; the loss of love, of language, of sovereignty, of wealth, of health and of religion. The atmosphere of loss almost haunts the pages and words of the Irish, and leads to questions about the influence of loss, the representation of loss and the meaning of loss. Where does this loss fit in? How has it changed? What impact do chronological, political, economic and geographical changes have on loss?
