[UPDATE] The French New Wave at 60: A Reassessment (abstracts by Sept. 30)

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 - 1:23pm
Northeast Modern Language Association

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 jackiec159@hotmail.com
by Sept. 30.

The impact of the engagement between Shakespeare and the French continues to be immense, and this panel seeks to explore and appreciate the ever-changing nature of this impact. Submit abstracts (in English or French) to jackiec159@hotmail.com by Sept. 30.

"Holy and Unholy Roadtrips in Middle English Romance"

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.
