Deadline for Abstract submission: 25 July. Proceedings will be published, after peer-reviewing process.
With the development of the contemporary communicating tools, contemporary society seems to be marked by a rapid flow of events and ideas that appear and disappear from the memory of a relatively young individual as fast as they appear. This atmosphere of rapid exchange of hot news and new trends in fashion, ways of life, etc. tends to affect even the most traditional societies. Accordingly, identities tend to be shaped in relation to contemporary "idols" that seem always innovative. However, at the same time iconic figures of the past still dominate contemporary mentalities, but sometimes only as symbols for the perpetual quest for novelty.

Maggie Hennefeld / Brown University

This panel seeks to explore a diverse range of questions, contexts, and ideas about the relationship between film and comedy in order to provide new approaches to problems of representation in cinema. Work on film comedy has explored the capacity for humor to represent the unrepresentable: from sexual innuendo in classic screwball comedies, to political satire in documentary filmmaking, to silent slapstick's provocative reimaginations of modernity. How does looking closely at comedy help us understand cinema's capacity to represent time and space? What are the limits and potentials of comedic interventions in social politics (e.g. slapstick portrayals of domestic politics or of war and state violence)?
