Hidden Cinema of the Southwest and Mexico Symposium

Building on the success of the inaugural Hidden Cinema Symposium in 2011, we seek to further explore how amateur, scientific, educational, and independent films have portrayed the Southwestern U.S. and Mexico. 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.

I have received a contract for a volume of critical/scholarly essays--currently titled Class and Culture in Contemporary Crime Fiction--from McFarland & Company. Through the same press I published in 2005 an edited volume on detective fiction titled Race and Religion in the Postcolonial British Detective Story and another in 2012 titled Murdering Miss Marple: Essays on Gender and Sexuality in the New Golden Age of Women's Crime Fiction. (This third volume, on class, will round out the trilogy of critical studies on detective fiction: race, gender, class.)

Please submit your abstract (250 words) and a brief cv by August 1, 2012, to be considered for this collection.

This panel explores the tension between the theatrical and the anti-theatrical in contemporary culture. From the increasing ubiquity of performance art in mainstream theatre to the public spectacle of the political protest, this panel solicits papers that asks what role theatre plays in a world that blurs the boundaries between social ritual and performative fiction. We welcome papers that address political performance as well as studies of aesthetic practice in modern theatre. Send abstracts of less than 250 words to LGeddes@adelphi.edu by September 30, 2012.

Report from the Pop Line: On the Life and Afterlife of Popular

The concept of the popular, or popular culture for that matter, has never ceased to be an ambivalent one. Although it has come to occupy a particular place under the spotlight over the past decades within the broad study of culture, such apparently privileged position has not deprived it of the manifold ambiguities, complexities or misconceptions that have often involved its general understanding.

This panel focuses on the alter ego or the second self, asking what it might mean to imagine someone/something as another instance of one's self. Papers might address a wide range of "second selves," including twins, friends, spouses, children, ambassadors, avatars, emissaries, representatives, rivals, foils, doubles, and impersonators. Participants might also treat the topic more abstractly, as in the case of one's reputation, credit, image, office, or personae. We will be especially interested in how these alter egos might ask, answer, or unsettle questions of identity, epistemology, and ethics (e.g., altruism, sympathy, and "loving thy neighbor as thyself.").
