The Projector is developing a special (potentially double) issue reinvestigating art house exhibition. We are interested in research that contributes to the growing body of work on art house exhibition, particularly in relation to the changing modes of art house distribution and exhibition in the era of media convergence.
This special issue looks at the changing modes of exhibition at art house theatres by examining their audiences, marketing strategies, programming, fundraising, technologies and industrial practices.
Approaches to this topic may include:
Case studies of individual art house theatres

Ever since Max Weber in scientific and philosophical reflection, the idea appeared that the Reformation is not only a historical phenomenon but above all socio-cultural. Associated with it were, among others, individualism, experientialism, modernity, innovation, activism, asceticism in the world, creativity, self-reflection, communitarianism, economy, development of accounting, criticism, capitalism, the culture of writing and printing. It's only a few examples of phenomena and values associated inextricably with the wider Reformation in culture. The very existence of the Reformation bears fruit historically in the concept of tolerance and respect for diversity. The list of themes and values certainly is not limited and closed.

Recent years have seen a growing and sustained interest in the work of Elizabeth Bowen. Her work can be read through a wide variety of literary approaches, and this has led to an expanding body of criticism. No longer thought of as a writer on the margins of Bloomsbury, Bowen rightly occupies a central place in our understanding of both the twentieth century and twentieth-century literature.
The aim of this conference is to continue the re-evaluation of Bowen’s body of work, and we welcome abstracts that will add to our understanding of both the writer and the novels, short stories and other prose she produced.

AAIS-CSIS 2017 Roundtable CFP
Innovative Approaches to Teaching Italian
Please notice the extended deadline
Based on its success at the 2016 AAIS conference, this roundtable will seek to explore again innovative approaches to teaching Italian language, history, culture, or literature. Of particular – but not exclusive – interest are methods that utilize digital resources (video games, websites, computer programs). What resources and genres make the most effective teaching tools? Can interactivity with technology influence the way students learn? Which linguistic, cultural and literary concepts can best be illustrated?

ASLE Conference Proposed Panel, June 20-24, 2017, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI.
William James first coined the term “stream of consciousness” in 1890 to describe the flow of consciousness, as metaphors of water seem the most appropriate to describe the flow of thoughts in the human mind. Water is often connected in literature to the flow and passage of time, as time itself is understood to be fluid, relative, non-linear, and variable in one’s experience of the passage of time. This panel seeks to create a dialogue concerning water and time, with a particular focus on the ways in which literary texts link the human mind, water, and temporality. Papers might engage such questions as:
