CALL FOR PROPOSALS / ABSTRACTS
43rd Annual Conference of the
NEW YORK AFRICAN(A) STUDIES ASSOCIATION
Seton Hall University, NJ
April 13 – 14, 2018
THEME: GLOBAL AFRICA: HUMAN MIGRATION, THE AFRICAN DIASPORA, AND THE FUTURE
Over the past decade, film studies has increasingly taken up the question of the environment and climate change (Rust, Monani, Cubit; Narine; Pick and Narraway). However, the question of “nature” has yet to be comprehensively theorized from the perspective of Latin American cinema. This edited volume proposes to begin to fill this gap by bringing together scholarship that explores Latin American films (from any time period) that foreground the nonhuman. We are specifically interested in thinking about why the past decade has generated an unprecedented boom in ecologically oriented films (both documentaries and fiction) throughout Latin America. How do these films dialogue with or push back against broader theories in ecocriticism?

This CFP begins from the assumption that modernity and modernization have had deeply contested legacies in the Global South. While postcolonial frames have elaborated several rich possibilities to engage with these legacies, we are interested in papers that interrogate and/or extend postcolonial frameworks for thinking about modernization and modernity from the perspective of environmental and ecological questions.
Papers can include but are not limited to some of the following themes.
Accounts of migration and displacement often focus on the bounded terrains of specific cities and the navigation of certain rooted sites, places of origin and/or destination. At the same time, cartographic and spatial terminology (e.g. “mapping,” “space,” “place,” “orientation”) are used in increasingly metaphorical ways, at the possible expense of more historical and/or materialist approaches to theorizing the global, the planetary, and the transnational. This panel invites contributors to examine the affective as well as material dimensions of being ‘in transit,’ the enabling condition of more familiar narrative tropes of exile, migration, travel and displacement.
