This session will explore the intersection of film studies and history. We are looking for papers that explore filmic depictions of historical events, including motion pictures and television forms. Papers that foreground discussions of the accuracy, truthfulness, and ethics of filmic depiction, issues of historiography, and questions of the history of film-making itself are welcome. Since this year's conference theme also addresses sight, visuality, and ways of seeing, papers submitted that combine historical philosophies of film with the ontology of vision are also very welcome.

Session Title - Images of Crisis: Poetic Ways of Seeing Disasters
This session seeks papers on representations of "crisis" in literature, broadly defined. A non-exhaustive list of the questions raised by this panel may include: what happens when images of crises, disasters, or ruins are mediated through literature? How do images connect to understanding and knowledge? How does ekphrasis limit or enhance the possibilities of empathy? What are the obligations of our conscience as readers? What are the ethics of writing or reading about cruelties and atrocities? Areas of inquiry encompass, but are not limited to, the following:

Religions make normative claims and scholars have normative commitments. However, religious studies often conceives of itself as an empirical discipline, aligning itself with other disciplines that are ostensibly descriptive, like history, sociology, and anthropology. This tension has led to polarization within religious studies.
We are pleased to announce that the Colorado Critical Review (CCR) is currently seeking submissions for issue 2.1 from both emerging and established scholars.
Firmly centered on the importance of critique, advocacy, and the forwarding of alternatives, CCR seeks to publish a comprehensive and diverse body of work that supports these ideals. We seek a broad range of submissions in a variety of formats and approaches—scholarly articles, essays, interviews, designs, art, poetry, multimedia and other works—that encourage and codify interdisciplinarity through incisiveness, analysis, ingenuity and integration.
Following the lead of the 2016 Slavic Studies Conference held in Padua and Venice, we propose to further the discussion of Slavic Studies among young scholars by hosting a new meeting at the University of Genoa. This second edition of the conference, directed at doctoral students and recent PhDs (whose degrees have been completed within the last 4 years), will be devoted to the topic of ostranenie.
Voyeurism functions in fiction in many ways: as state surveillance, as individual stalking, and even, arguably, in the acts of reading and writing. This panel will consider voyeurism through voyeur-tinged original fiction and critical papers both on voyeuristic works of fiction and on the voyeurism of the reader/writer/character relationship.
A return to the feminisms of the 1970s is one of the most salient dimensions of feminist studies to emerge over the last decade. This proposed volume seeks essays that reflect on this return—evident not only in academia, but in emergent activist feminisms of the 21st century—and speculate on what it means for feminist scholarship, politics, and cultural production.
This interdisciplinary anthology invites work by scholars in fields such as Film Studies, Philosophy, Art History, Cultural Studies, Visual and Cultural Anthropology, Literary and Historical studies, Media Studies, Women’s Studies, and beyond.
