Titre : "Racines et déracinements au grand écran: trajectoires migratoires dans le cinéma français du XXIème siècle"
Whether conceived as spirit, self, persona, or merely a silent placeholder, the concept of "voice," and its purported resonances, has had a varied history in literary studies. As recent philosophical explorations have found, voice can be understood in a number of ways, from its potential power as an embodied and engendered critique of traditional western philosophy to its more enigmatic role as a hinge between the social and the personal. For many literary scholars, the concept of voice conjures similar opportunities and challenges, whether considered as the aural signature of authorial style, as the imagined subjectivity of fictional characters, or as the term for a critical concept riddled with paradox.

pleased to invite university students (any level: doctoral, masters or undergrad) to participate in a roundtable discussion dedicated to their screendance (video dance, dance film, dance for camera) research and/or screendance making practice.
Students will have the opportunity to discuss their work (academic or practice-based) in an open and informal setting, in the presence of festival directors, invited scholars, and other students. Participants are welcome to attend other conference events and festival screenings during the week of May 12-17, 2014.
The International Video Dance Festival of Burgundy (France) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting abstracts for papers to be presented during the festival's second annual screendance conference in May 2014. The conference will be an international place of meeting for artists, scholars, curators and others interested in the practice of dance media and moving images. In light of feedback received following last year's events, this conference will be composed of thematic panels that allow for both brief paper presentations as well as ample discussion time. Panels will be moderated by recognized international screendance scholars. Select papers will be considered for a future publication of screendance essays.
In 2014, the recently refounded University of Liège Press (Presses Universitaires de Liège) will launch a multivolume series of scholarly, refereed anthologies entitled Clinamen.
Edited by Livio Belloï and Michel Delville under the auspices of the Interdisciplinary Center for Applied Poetics (www.cipa.ulg.ac.be), Clinamen will feature a series of contemporary methodological and theoretical approaches to the interdisciplinary analyses and interpretations of work in literature, music and the visual arts as well as of the intersection and growing permeability of aesthetic and extra-aesthetic discourses and forms of expression.
Deadline: January 6, 2014.
In a world of instant news updates, Wikipedia, and Twitter, memory seems a thing of the past. This instantaneity shapes the way we consider knowledge. In recent years, the rise of digital technology and communication has generated debates around global movements and this has shaped the way the past is recuperated into historical memory. The recent turn to archival memory in both theoretical discourses and artistic practices suggests a need to develop a new set of conceptual, literary, and aesthetic tools with which to understand, interpret, and problematize notions of the past and of memory.
