Situating Gender, Filming Place (SCMS, Seattle, March 19-24, 2014)

updated: 
Thursday, June 6, 2013 - 12:49am
Society for Cinema and Media Studies

This panel seeks a diverse range of papers that address the many intersections and problematics of gender, place, and space in film and television. Places and spaces are sexed and gendered, as feminist geographers have asserted for some time (i.e., Linda McDowell, Doreen Massey, Gill Valentine). We seek papers that consider how cinematic space and/or images of place mediate discourses of gender. The meanings of gender and sexuality are frequently constituted through representations of place and space in film and TV.

Technology, Rhetoric and Cultural Change: Walter S. Ong, S.J. in the Age of Google, Facebook, and Twitter

updated: 
Wednesday, June 5, 2013 - 5:25pm
Walter Ong Conference, Gonzaga University

Walter Ong was among the foremost theorists of rhetoric and culture in the 20th century. A student of Marshall McLuhan and Perry Miller, his dissertation on the importance of Peter Ramus, a 16th century logician and developer of a deeply influential pedagogy, brought him an international audience. Over the course of his long career, he published several books and hundreds of essays, most arguing that the technology of human communication is reflected, however indirectly, in human consciousness. This interdisciplinary conference will celebrate Ong's legacy and the tradition of Jesuit scholarship.

CFP for Upcoming Issue of postmedieval—
Contemporary Poetics and the Medieval Muse

In a recent article, Chris Jones provides a survey of what he calls "an important new development in modern poetry," namely the increasingly large and diverse "range of modern writers who drew on Old English sources in their work," performing a return to and recovery of early medieval forms and plots. The foremost characteristic of this "New Old English" was the "sustained deployment of Old English tropes and techniques" and "the rhythmical possibilities for composition" offered by early medieval poetry.

Synoptique: An Online Journal of Film and Moving Image Studies

In the spring of 1913, Dadasaheb Phalke's Raja Harishchandra, the first Indian feature-length film was screened. Celebrations commemorating the 100th year of Indian cinema's success and rich history have emerged in 2013; thus illustrating its far-reaching impact and staying power (film festivals, special productions, interviews, special editions, exhibitions, etc.). With this in mind, Synoptique has decided to join the fray and point towards the less traveled roads of Indian cinema discussion by expanding upon the reflections brought on by these centennial commemorations. We invite you to submit texts which will shine light on the more unusual and alternative facets of Indian cinema.

Host: Susquehanna University

"Each now is the now of a particular knowability. In it, truth is charged to the bursting point with time. (This point of explosion […] coincides with […] the time of truth.) It is not that what is past casts its light on what is present, or what is present its light on what is past; rather, image is that wherein what has been comes together in a flash with the now to form a constellation."
- Walter Benjamin

2nd INTERNATIONAL ISAR SYMPOSIUM
with a Special Focus on State: Between Tradition and Future

December 21-22, 2013
Istanbul

At the mention of the word 'State', we do not only understand the concept nation-state, but a varied range of ideas; and, what is more, there exists a theoretical accord, whereupon the needed metaphysical distinction between the ideas of abstract universal 'State' and concrete particular nation-state is preserved. Do these two facts mean that, in practice, we succeed in protecting ourselves from the reduction that occurs within a definite fetishistic illusion, and by which means the notion of an abstract universal state is reduced to a particular nation-state form?

Cinema and Migration

This panel aims to explore cinema across borders and in comparative perspective. In an age of global modernity, viewing the migrant experience from the perspective of a single national culture is restrictive. Submissions that engage with themes of exile, displacement, immigrants, emigrants, flows of migration, or people who do not fit within legitimate borders and boundaries are welcome. All theoretical, methodological, and cultural approaches to the 'border' experience are welcome. 150-300 word abstract to maria.catrickes@yale.edu by September 30, 2013
