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.

Literature, Politics, Media

 

‘There is no name for this: we read this as a truism. What is unnameable here is not some ineffable being that cannot be approached by a name; like God for example. What is unnameable is the play that brings about the nominal effects, the relatively unitary or atomic structures we call names, or chains of substitutions for names. In these, for example, the nominal effect of “difference” is itself involved, carried off, and reinscribed, just as the false beginning or end of a game is still part of the game, a function of the system’

-          Jacques Derrida, “Difference”

International Conference on Interrogating Disability Studies: Literature, Culture, Performance

Though the roots of neglect and discrimination against persons with disabilities can be historically traced, the voices of this critical segment of society have largely remained unproblemitized in academic discourses. The traditional medical and welfare-based approaches have often overlooked the significant impact of disability on the socio-cultural and psychological lives of persons with disabilities both as individuals and groups. Further, till recently, most academic discussions relating to disability paradigms have tended to revolve around legal provisions, support systems etc.
