Building on the success of the inaugural Hidden Cinema Symposium in 2011, we seek to explore further how amateur, scientific, educational, and independent filmmakers around the world have captured the Southwestern U.S. and Mexico on film. We wish to cultivate a more comprehensive understanding of the Southwest's and Mexico's cinematic past by showcasing and analyzing the ways the region has been imagined in "hidden" and lesser-known films produced by non-Hollywood and amateur filmmakers during the last century.

Comic books, graphic novels and webcomics generally combine words and images to create narratives. Perhaps we can see them, therefore, as monstrous: beasts that combine the elements of verbal and visual, narrative and static communication forms. Like a monster composed of pieces of other animals, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This panel will examine a social understanding of comics forms and the kinds of literacies required to accept and interpret them. Abstracts of 300 words to lauere@sunysuffolk.edu; Deadline: September 30, 2012. Include: name, affiliation, anticipated a/v requirements.

The period of the French Revolution has long been recognized as a privileged moment in which sovereign violence and cultural production come together and erupt into new visions of civilization and history. Yet how is the relation between sovereignty, culture and violence understood in the decades leading up to the Revolution? Where are the contradictions and tensions that inhabit visions of Ancien Régime literature, the arts and Enlightenment thought that make the encounter between culture and violence unavoidable or necessary? What cultural image does violence give rise to and how does violence come to be understood as being a fundamental aspect of culture?
