This panel for the 2015 NeMLA in Toronto seeks to explore the impact of The French New Wave along with the key filmmakers and films that defined the movement. The Nouvelle Vague changed the way that people watch, critique, and make movies for generations to come. However, what happens when the New Wave is no longer new? Has its elevation to classic status stripped it of its power to provoke? What is the continued relevance of the French New Wave? We seek to engage with these questions by looking at its criticism, filmmakers, and key New Wave films, and the current status of the Nouvelle Vague. Submit abstracts (in English or French) to firstname.lastname@example.org
by Sept. 30.

Submit abstracts (in English or French) to email@example.com by Sept. 30.

In Middle English romances, knights-errant traverse varied and perilous geographies on journeys that are often as moral, spiritual and experiential as they are physical. Some romances feature purposefully foreign or otherworldly landscapes, but others present quite familiar ones. This panel will consider the explicit and implicit functions of the physical and metaphorical journeys that drive Middle English romances.

Plaridel Special Issue
Locating Southeast Asian Horror
Issue editors: Katarzyna Ancuta & Patrick F. Campos
The unprecedented success of Japanese and Korean horror on international markets in the early 2000s increased the demand for the genre from the region, but also set a new standard against which these productions were judged. Encouraged by the enthusiastic reception of (the problematically labeled but widely accepted category) "Asian Horror" by commentators and the global fan community, Southeast Asian national cinemas began to revitalize their local horror genres, and distributors eventually turned to Southeast Asian horror as well.
The centennial of the canal's inauguration provides an opportunity to renew inquiry about Panama's mission of "service to the world," as stated by the country's motto. The colloquium approaches the history of the canal in light of recent efforts to promote "global," "connected," or "transnational" history. It aims both to reassess the geopolitics of the canal's control and
