S: Journal of the Circle for Lacanian Ideology Critique
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

For the most part, Lacanian discussions of Marguerite Duras’ work have focused on The Ravishing of Lol V. Stein. While this should not surprise – the novel was presented by Michèle Montrelay during Lacan’s Seminar in 1965 and Lacan himself devoted a short essay to it – it also raises the question whether other novels, theatre texts or films by Duras can be approached from a Lacanian point of view, to an equally illuminating effect.

The editors of S invite you to present readings of texts and films by Duras, other than Lol V. Stein. This may also be an occasion to address more general topics such as love, sexual difference, voice, gaze, repetition and politics, via a confrontation of Duras with Lacan.

Small Cinemas Conference

From the Grassroots to the Global

 November 9-10, 2018

Boca Raton, Florida Atlantic University

 

In an increasingly globalized world where digital technology has gained greater access to socio-economically marginalized communities, the parameters of small cinemas have broadened their scope to include digitally shot material from portable devices like cellphones in an era of transnational internet distribution alongside its ongoing and historical association with national cinemas and celluloid-based products.

What Now? NYU Cinema Studies Student Conference

February 23-24, 2018

https://cinemastudiesconference.wordpress.com

What now? A discomfiting question. It compels a revisiting of our pasts, a consideration of where we stand today, and an articulation of the directions in which we expect, or hope, to go. 

As disciplinary boundaries become fluid, technology continues to change, and temporalities seem increasingly uncertain, it is essential to address the What Nows confronting our field today, and reconsider those from before.

Mediascape Calls for Columns on Digital and New Media

 

Mediascape, UCLA’S Journal of Cinema and Media Studies, invites Columns submissions for their 2017 issue. The aim of this issue is to focus on Digital and New Media. As interactions with digital and new media are ever expanding, now deeply ingrained in TV show narratives and written about extensively in academia, we expect your submissions to be relevant, dynamic, and unique. Topics to consider include but are not limited to digital and new media in relationship to film and television, virtual reality, short-form web-series, queer game studies, and critical data studies.
