Silent Cinema and Time Travel (SCMS Chicago, March 6-10, 2013)

Maggie Hennefeld / Brown University

This panel poses methodological questions about the resurgence of interest in early film history by interrogating the thematic of time travel in silent cinema. The emergence of cinema itself constitutes a form of time travel, at once "mummifying" contingent moments and making them portable for reenactment in the present, and inventing parallel futures and histories by innovating new cinematic techniques (stop-motion photography, trick splices, enlargements of miniature objects, color tinting and toning, undercranking, smoke and mirrors, etc).

Conference: Football and Communities Across Codes

Monday 4th February – Wednesday 6th February 2013
Sydney, Australia

Call for Presentation:
The word "football" conjures up images of very different types of games depending on where one happens to be in the world. But no matter whether players kick a goal, score a try, or score a touchdown on the field, each football code is underpinned by the dynamic interplay between clubs, players, governing institutions, fan communities, individual supporters and the broader social context in which they exist. The resulting relationships are characterised by complexity, conflict, controversy, commodification, and the perhaps most importantly, the (in)constancy of fans.
