James Travis Rozier / University of Mississippi
contact email: 

This panel seeks submissions dealing with the works of John Dos Passos in the interests of reviving scholarship on an author who has received scant recent critical attention. In keeping with the theme of the convention, the topic will address ways in which Dos Passos's works represent, respond to or possibly resist the forces of modernity. This panel seeks papers which address the ways Dos Passos's work renders visible the forces of modernity and seeks to resist these forces. Possible paper topics include, but are not limited to, the ways in which Dos Passos' formal experimentation deals with the issues of alienation, flows of capital, new technologies, historical fracture or social loss. Submitters are encouraged to interpret this topic broadly.

CFP-Stocks, Screens, and Servers: The Materiality of Media (The Velvet Light Trap #70)

The Velvet Light Trap

As culture becomes increasingly digitized— from downloading and streaming videos and music to digital film production and cloud computing— arguments for the "dematerialization" of media are becoming commonplace. However, media have always been, and remain, embedded in and structured by material objects, networks, and practices that delimit their uses and meanings. Any cultural artifact bears traces and consequences of the material conditions of its production, distribution, and reception, whether the size and weight of the camera that shot a film's images, the geography of the shipping or cable network through which a program was transported or transmitted, or the spaces occupied by physical record or DVD collections.
