“Alternative Facts” and Fictions: Multiplicity, Indeterminacy, and the 2016 Presidential Election

updated: 
Thursday, March 2, 2017 - 10:57am
MLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 10, 2017

This MLA roundtable will reconsider the “Theory” debates of the 1980s and after in light of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.  Is poststructuralist “de-centering” somehow complicit in the rise of “alternative facts” of recent newspeak or does it offer a critical bulwark against it?  (This is not a guaranteed session, so the proposal will be submitted once the roundtable is set.)  Please send a 250-word abstract and short biographical blurb by March 10 to David Ben-Merre (benmerdn@buffalostate.edu).

SCRUTINISING BEAUTY

 

Beauty is the only thing that time cannot harm. Philosophies fall away like sand, creeds follow one another, but what is beautiful is a joy for all seasons, a possession for all eternity.

-          Oscar Wilde

 

Beauty is desired in order to be befouled. Not for its own sake, but for the joy brought by the certainty of profaning it.

-          Georges Bataille

High Art/Low Art: Boundaries of Genre, Character, and Viewer in Popular and Independent Film, SAMLA 89 [proposal due June 1, 2017]

updated: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:14pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association Film Studies Group
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

Across independent, international, and Hollywood film communities, notions of boundary continue to articulate and challenge how we engage with film. As viewers, critics, and theorists, how might we problematize boundaries of genre, character, and viewer in popular and/or independent film? And when boundaries separating high from low art begin to dissolve, how do we trace dissolutions and reformulations of boundary between popular and independent film? In keeping with the theme of high art/low art: border and boundaries in popular culture, this panel seeks papers addressing liminality in writing, directing, visual style, and performance in popular and independent film.
