Call for paper: Panel on "Deaf Cinema in Asia" at Asian Cinema Studies Society Conference (HKU, Hong Kong, Mar 18-20,2012)
Deaf Cinema is emerging in the world. However the subject matter lacks scholarly attention. As the organizer of The Second Hong Kong International Deaf Film Festival, I would like to form a panel to discuss the characteristics that constitute Deaf Cinema, especially in Asia. The papers could be on the representation of D/deaf and/or hard of hearing in mainstream cinema and the cultural politics of D/deaf identity in Asian Cinema.
