Representations of Catastrophe in Science Fiction Film- ACLA 2012 Providence Deadline November 15

From its inception, film created the very ground for thinking of catastrophe and different approaches to the end of the world. Whether it is Lang's Metropolis that pushes the dynamics of industrialism to its end or Whedon's Serenity that imagines the aftermath of this monstrous industrialism, science fiction remains a medium where depression, collapse, catastrophe or the end of times can be thought in its utmost limits. Michael Haneke's Time of the Wolf not only did imagine the end as such but also showed the aftermath of a such end. Most recently, it was Lars Von Trier's Melancholia (2011) that pinpointed our own depressive era by collapsing earth with a rogue planet.

The concept of the undead focuses our attention upon the paradoxical, aporetic, seemingly-permeable boundaries between life and death, and between past and present. Within the scope of this seminar, we are interested in how embodied or estranged voices, narrative, and stories, pass through those boundaries.

We invite proposals for papers for an academic conference which will be held in Sopot, Poland, as part of the international literary / theatre festival BETWEEN. This year celebration of the work of John Berger, on the one hand, and Complicite, on the other, will be accompanied with a more general examination of the ever-changing relations between stage and page. We aim to provide an opportunity for a theoretical discussion about the various roles performed by playwrights, directors, producers, actors and stage designers. We want to investigate the ways in which they inspire, reject, transform, disrespect, follow the work of one another. Or, as is the case with John Berger and Complicite, the ways in which writers and theatre collaborate.
