Film and media adaptations have frequently projected an alternate cinematic world on screen that re-imagines the past and future. Movies (Blade Runner, The Quiet American), TV shows (Sherlock, Agent Carter), and digital ‘new media’ series—increasingly streamed and ‘binge watched’ on Netflix (House of Cards) and Amazon (The Man in the High Castle)—have been inspired by a variety of fiction novels, short stories, plays, comics, graphic novels, and historical works of nonfiction, memoirs (Bridge of Spies) or documentary (Jazz on a Summer’s Day) cine-essays that mediate and reframe history to portray an alternate worldview which re-imagines the past and anticipates a vision of future events.

Thursday, June 30, 2016

This CS Journal special issue aims at exploring the encounter and intersection between fashion studies and media studies, with particular reference to visual and audiovisual products, e.g. cinema, television, advertising and digital media. Over the past decades, fashion acquired centrality in social and economical dynamics in Western culture for its capability to penetrate and influence both production and identitarian practices. Fashion both fully takes part in artistic processes as an autonomous aesthetic and semantic object (fashion as a medium) and has a pivotal role in crea­tive industry as a provider of fundamental material for the formation of imaginary worlds and characters (fash­ion as a media industry).

In today’s global landscape, the category of the “human” has assumed a principal position not simply in terms of its ontological centrality but also in relation to surrounding nonhuman worlds. At stake are questions ranging from the impact of humans on the biosphere (the Anthropocene) to their involvement in the virtual world (Knowledge Commons and Ergodicity) to their experiences of the “inner life” of things (Object-oriented ontology and Affect Theory) to the ethical politics over the Other (the terrorist, the refugee, the queer).

The F Scott Fitzgerald Society
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2016

For only the second time in its history, the F.

Fitzgerald was, of course, born in Saint Paul and spent most of his formative years there. The conference theme, Was student – am now writer, comes from Fitzgerald’s military discharge interview, and marks the acknowledgement of his emergence in Saint Paul as a writer.

Tours & Detours (special issue) -- Textshop Experiments

updated: 
Tuesday, June 7, 2016 - 11:00am
K. A. Wisniewski & Felix Burgos / Textshop Experiments
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

The theme of this issue, Tours and Detours, is intended to provoke a wide variety of topics and approaches.  For some, it seeks to examine the interplay between identity, space, history, and memory, exploring the ways in which identities and communities are created, formed, and informed by spatial and temporal contexts.  For others, it conjures up ideas of travel, tourism, and critical heritage, seeking to actively exchange, share, and challenge ideas on information technologies, place-making, and digital economy.  Yet another group of scholars and artists might interpret the topic as rhetorical strategies around impasses of knowledge (what Barthes called the punctum and the situationists referred to as détournement).
