[UPDATE] From Boardroom to Bijou: Exploring Cinema Distribution and Exhibition (proposals by 31st July 2010)

Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities - special issue

Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities (Texas A & M University-Commerce) welcomes original manuscript submissions for a special issue on cinema distribution and exhibition.

The classic Hollywood studio model had three main strings: production, distribution and exhibition. Less print space has been devoted to scholarship on the latter two, which remain essential to the story of cinema in the United States and the rest of the world. Post Script aims to address this imbalance with a special issue focusing on the business of film distribution and the art of cinema exhibition. Papers, essays, interviews, reviews and other articles on any area of cinema distribution or exhibition are welcome.

[UPDATE] Ethnic American Drama -MMLA conference- Chicago Nov. 4-7, 2010 (Deadline 6/1/2010)

updated: 
Saturday, May 15, 2010 - 11:27pm
Samuel Park/Columbia College Chicago

For the past twenty years, playwrights such as Suzan-Lori Parks, David Henry Hwang, and Cherrie Moraga have found themselves becoming as common in the dramatic literature curriculum as O'Neill, Williams, and Beckett, and the study of their work both re-affirms and challenges traditional approaches to studying and teaching drama. This panel seeks to address pedagogical approaches to teaching the work of minority playwrights in the classroom. Papers may focus on particular texts by ethnic American theater artists, and/or pedagogical models that grapple with the intersections of ethnic literature and drama as genre.

While we have many accounts of reading and the emerging middle class in eighteenth-century England, our understanding of literacy for domestic servants is less clear. There is evidence that a range of men and women servants read for pleasure and self-improvement. Ironically, as the number of domestic servants who were able to read grew steadily, writers became aware of how the text can affect moral character.

[UPDATED DEADLINE] Imago Dei in Contemporary World Literature (31 May; SAMLA Nov. 5-7, 2010)

updated: 
Thursday, May 13, 2010 - 4:48pm
J. Stephen Pearson

Special Session on Religion & World Literature: Imago Dei: humanity contains the image of God. What does this idea look like in late 20th-century world literature (1970-2010)? How have globalization, technologization, secularization, post-secularization and other historical developments created new "images of God"? In what ways are modern "images of God" syncretic and in what ways are they traditional?

Send 1 page abstract by 31 May to Steve Pearson at aristophanes68@hotmail.com . Panelists will need to be SAMLA members by 15 August.

"A modern reflection on being must be aware of itself not as an approximation of metaphysical truth; rather, the ontology most congenial to an age of information is one that identifies being as relationality, as the principle of connectedness assumed by all technologies of transmission, as well as by the social imaginary that can refract or violate it." - Leo Bersani and Ulysse Dutoit, "Beauty's Light"

[UPDATE] Consuming the Past: Library Resources for PGRs - An Interdisciplinary Conference and Training Day

updated: 
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 - 9:13am
Durham, Newcastle and Northumbria Universities

As researchers we 'consume' texts, reading, interpreting and reusing material found in archives or specialist electronic resources. Libraries are a key tool in this process. Library-based research is no longer restricted to the book, but also encompasses archived materials, electronic databases and local resources. This conference provides an opportunity to explore both the practical and theoretical issues arising from attempts to understand the past: training sessions will investigate the use of archival resources in the arts and humanities whilst panellists will also consider how texts themselves conceptualise and appropriate the past.

Call for Entries: CINESONIKA: The First International Film and Video Festival of Innovative Sound Design

CINESONIKA

CINESONIKA: The First International Film and Video Festival of Innovative Sound Design

The theme of this international film and video festival is to celebrate the soundtrack. Usually in cinema festivals there is a fixation on movie stars, or captivating imagery, or the literary qualities of screenplays, or the abstract concepts of film theory. Sound tends to be relatively unvalorized in moving-image making. The intent of the festival is to give attention to innovative work in the creation of film and video soundtracks, and to give due credit to the importance of audio in audiovisual media.
