NYU Cinema Studies Student Conference, Spring 2011
February 25-26, 2011 -- New York University, New York, NY
The New York University Cinema Studies department is excited to announce the 2011 Student Conference. Each year, our goal is to bring together scholars from a variety of departments and disciplines in order to address the transformations currently shaping the field of cinema studies.

What is at stake when we read a text? What do we mean when we call ourselves literary critics or practitioners of critical theory, literary theory, or men and women of letters? This conference calls out to those who practice close reading and invites them to reflect on what happens in the critical moment of reading.

21st Annual Mardi Gras Conference at Louisiana State University
March 3 – 4, 2011
Keynote Address by Dr. Shoshana Felman, Emory University
Erie, Pennsylvania, the state's only port city, has historically served as a center for maritime and rail travel. Its waters were vital to winning wars and providing a point of arrival for immigrants. Erie's remote location and close proximity to the Canadian border also offered a conduit for those escaping slavery. Narratives of travel have long served to document the course of peoples' physical and imaginative movements. They have recorded minute details of lived experience as well as aspirations for the future and fears of the unknown, creating histories of time and place, directing individual lives, and shaping cultural realities.
