CFP: Call for Contributions on "the depiction of Indigenous bodies"

updated: 
Saturday, July 24, 2010 - 2:46pm
Jura Gentium Cinema

The online journal "Jura Gentium Cinema" (www.jgcinema.org) is seeking articles (3,000-5,000 words) for a special issue on the depiction of Indigenous bodies in motion pictures, from "Apocalypto" to the "Whale Rider".

The articles should critically address cinematic representations of Indigenous cultures that either idealize or negate the Other, while also drawing attention to how films subvert and re-write these representations as part of Indigenous people effort to reclaim their own images and rendering on the silver screen.

Film reviews should be informative and evaluative, without being dismissive: that is, the reviewer should find some value in the work being reviewed.

updated: 
Friday, July 23, 2010 - 10:06am
National University of Ireland Maynooth

This international and interdisciplinary conference seeks fresh perspectives on these issues. In particular, we invite contributions on the following topics:

definitions of Schubert's late style (ontology versus chronology; critique versus synthesis);
text setting in the late songs;
Schubert's late style and Schubert's maturity;
problems in the reception of Schubert's late music;
contradictions in the biographical scholarship of Schubert's final years;
issues in the theory of form;
topic, affect and expression in the late music;
issues of tonal strategy;

New Latin American Writing in the U.S. (9/30/10; NeMLA 4/7-10/2010, New Brunswick, New Jersey)

updated: 
Friday, July 23, 2010 - 3:33am
Bernabé Mendoza / NeMLA: Northeast Modern Language Association

In light of the recent critical reception of such authors as Roberto Bolaño and Junot Díaz, this panel seeks to ask, what constitutes a Latin American author today in the U.S.? How is s/he read? Fifty years after what was labeled as the "boom," how are we approaching new Latin American texts? Do we still adhere to a boom aesthetic, which insists on a fascination with local color and exoticism? Other questions to be considered include (but are not limited to): What do recent critiques reveal about our understanding and expectations of literary works written by Hispanic writers (writing in English, Spanish, or 'Spanglish')? How are Latin American authors and their texts marketed?

11th Annual SALA Conference, Los Angeles, January 7-8 2011: Transnational Realisms and Post R<!--break-->

11th Annual South Asian Literary Association Conference: Transnational Realisms and Post Realisms in South Asian Literature and Culture

This conference examines ways in which South Asian realist and postrealist writers unsettle and rework realist codes. South Asian cultural and narrative forms are erased or occluded in the realism/anti-realism debate. The normative account in literary histories posits realism as the precursor to modernism. South Asian literary realisms diverge from, and are discontinuous with, the long history of debate about Platonic and neo-Platonic art as copying a copy of the real.
