It's a Mad World: The Work of Terry Gilliam [update] 10/15/09

Anna Froula

We seek essays of 4,000 to 8,000 words for an anthology that explores the work of writer-actor-director-comedian Terry Gilliam. For decades Gilliam has been a leading film auteur, both a comic and a social critic, and a historical, critical survey of his work is needed. While he has never wholly departed from his Monty Python roots, he has forged his own distinct vision. Gilliam cinematically creates worlds that are AT once familiar AND unwelcome. He triumphs the mundane and the absurd. His anachronistic and off-kilter vision consistently throws off our ability to find a stable or common foundation on which to ground our approach to his films.

Northeast MLA: 2010 Convention/ Montreal/ April 7--11

This panel will examine the construction and deconstruction of truth and lie as they shape multiple realities in the texts Blackbird, Lolita, and Doubt. Whose perceptions of reality are privileged when constructions of reality clash? When/how do perceptions of sexual intimacy transform into accusations of abuse? In what ways does the trajectory of age impact formations of reality from memory? Please send 250--500 word abstracts to cathy.fagan@ncc.edu. PDF or Word files please.

Global

Chapter proposals are invited for an edited book on the themes and films of Claire Denis. As Denis' films are rich in subject matter, story, theme and contemporary concerns, the preference is for a cross-disciplinary perspective, which may include film studies but does not have to concentrate solely on or derive from it.
