SCMS 2015 (Montreal): Justice Served?: Investigating the Theme of Punishment in Crime Films

Sarah Delahousse

During the course of a crime film, punishment is a major motif that drives the film's narrative. The anticipated conclusion to a crime film, for instance, typically depicts the criminal receiving punishment of his or her misdeeds; this conclusion's prevailing message implies a resolution to the genre's powerful commentary on cultural values related to work and morality by reassuring that social order is restored. However, the instances when the criminal evades punishment or when race, class and/or gender strongly motivate the punishment given call this expected feature's moral compass into question.

Endemic: Essays in Contagion Theory

This call for proposals invites interdisciplinary approaches toward the development of an edited collection on contagion theory. The goal of this project is to build upon nascent foundational texts, such as Priscilla Wald's 2001 _Contagious_ and Laura Otis's 1999 _Membranes_, and hone this formative work in light of recent technological and socio-cultural developments.

These landmark texts elucidated the social construction of germ theory and the discourse surrounding epidemics in a globalized world. Endemic seeks to explore the further productive potential of theorizing contagion in an era where cancerous lesions and cardiac failure provoke more fear than cholera.

In our interconnected age, everyone can be a published writer. Not only do blogs and discussion boards make it possible for any writer with a smartphone to reach a global audience, but the Internet also puts aspiring writers into immediate contact with publishers, editors, and webmasters in search of content. This situation has significant implications for composition studies. With the Internet at the tip of everyone's fingers, a world of publication opportunities is only a click away.

The figure of the hero underwent a renascence in meaning, visibility, and cultural cachet in the twenty-first century, with the success of the Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and World War Z franchises; the Batman, James Bond, and Marvel Cinematic Universe tent-poles; and the 24, Arrow, and Games of Thrones television series. Moreover, the hero took on new significance in other countries' cultural productions, as with the film series Krrish in India, Zebraman in Japan, and Valley of the Wolves in Turkey.
