First Women and the Politics of Looking: Gender, Indigeneity and Representation

Ed. Wendy Gay Pearson, Kimberly J. Verwaayen, Ernie Blackmore and Renée E. Bédard

Description:

This anthology will focus on the representation and especially the self-representation of Indigenous girls and women in the arts. The editors are particularly interested in articles that address questions of cultural imagination, resistance, recuperation and the complex politics of representation within the fraught spaces of cultural and geopolitical contexts that may be considered variously colonial, post-colonial and neo-colonial.

Polluted Places/Impure Spaces

Participants in this seminar will examine the voices that emerge from polluted or impure sites. This "pollution" could take many forms, and comprise an array of relations. Any polluted locations — in as many forms as we can discern or devise — are fair game for our study: prohibited or tabooed Superfund sites, reconstituted dumps, artificial nature, tainted texts and ritually impure space.

These are the places that invite "cleansing" in the name of "purity" — like the swamps around New Orleans from which the maroon Bras Coupé strikes in G.W. Cable's The Grandissimes.

POSTGRADUATE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

THE EUROPEANNESS OF EUROPEAN CINEMA

Keynote Speaker: Thomas Elsaesser

Confirmed Plenary Speakers: Susan Hayward and Ginette Vincendeau

Studies in European cinema have often been focused on specific countries, genres or auteurs. However, there has been, since the 1990s, a renewed interest in European film as an entity with a significance beyond the sum of its parts. Promoted by the policies in support of the audiovisual industry set in motion by the Council of Europe and the European Union, this new interest led to an amplified debate on Europe and the cinema that is produced and consumed there.
