Drawing from Foucault's notion of the 'political technology of the body' and the 'spectacle of the scaffold', the collection looks to explore the Sovereign's power and control over the body through the cinema's arguable co-option of the state's political-military-corporate aims and goals.
"Trans-Scripts" -- a student run, faculty advised online interdisciplinary journal in the Humanities and Social Sciences -- has recently been created at UC Irvine. The journal is seeking graduate student work, and I was wondering whether you would be so kind as to distribute the Call for Papers (attached as a pdf) to the grad students in the Humanities and Social Sciences at your institution.

SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY AREA
Conference of the Popular and American Culture Association (PCA/ACA)
April 20 – April 23, 2011 -- San Antonio, TX
One of the largest and most vibrant of the association, the Science Fiction and Fantasy (SF/F) Area invites proposals for its 2011 national conference. The goals of our area are (1) to share and support research, scholarship, and publication and (2) to mentor emerging scholars. As a result, we invite proposals from professors, independent scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates (with the guidance of a professor).
The conference will include sessions on Literature, the Sacred, and Texts; Literature, the Sacred, and the Environment; and Literature, the Sacred, and Philosophy. Within this context both literature and the sacred are defined quite broadly, and presentations on any topic, theme, or perspective within those general categories are welcome. Participants are also encouraged to propose their own category-specific sessions if necessary.
The conference will be held Thursday, October 14th, through Saturday, October 16th, at the Museum of Art at Brigham Young University.
Presentations should run approximately 15 minutes. Selected presentations from the conference will be published in a 2011 conference-specific issue of Literature and Belief.
To apply the SAMLA 2010 convention theme of "The Interplay of Text and Image" to fourteenth-century England, a panel will look at the visualization of vice and virtue in the works of Chaucer and Langland. Papers examining their different approaches to capturing a changing society are welcomed. This will be the ENGLISH I–C (MEDIEVAL) session. By August 30, 2010, please send a 250-word abstract and vitae to Kathleen DeMarco, Georgia Perimeter College, at Kathleen.DeMarco@gpc.edu.
