Sydney Screen Studies Network are currently seeking proposals for our End-of-Year Symposium that will cap off our 2017 program: Intersections in Film and Media Studies.

In her Fall 2014 Film Quarterly editorial film theorist B. Ruby Rich writes:

“Cinema itself is in a state of immense transition, yet it’s hard not to notice that attention is lavished disproportionately on technology and auteurist style, with the question of theme, focus, and subject matter repeatedly sidelined. What, though, is “filmable” today? And what is “theorizable” in response?”

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Whether people talk about their own experiences of childhood friendship or lack of friendship and sense of isolation, the concepts of friendship, social acceptance and rejection play a powerful role in childhood and are a perennial theme in children’s literature. Where is comfort, compassion, affirmation or information about social isolation or connection in today's literature?

In the 1800s Maria Edgeworth noted the difficulty of constructing stories ‘suited to the early years of youth, and, at the same time, conformable to the complicate relations of modern society.’  Children of 2018, a ‘rising generation’ of remarkably sophisticated individuals, face a startling array of challenges.

IL PARLAGGIO

 

This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages.

“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

Thinking Labor with Cinema

updated: 
Friday, November 3, 2017 - 3:26pm
diacritics
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

What can cinema teach us about labor, in the past, the present or the future? From Workers Leaving the Factory (Louis and Auguste Lumière and Harun Farocki) to the question of automation; from protest and resistance to the rhythms of the workday on screen, cinema has been a laboratory and incubator for ideas about work, value, time, energy, and capital. While this diacritics special issue will focus on cinema, we may also consider work that engages with other screen media cultures as long as cinema remains a point of reference. Essays may focus on specific films, genres, styles; or they may look more broadly at critical theories or limitations of the filmic apparatus to engage labor.

Beginning with the linguistic turn, there have been an increasing number of methodological “turns” in humanities-related fields, including the visual turn, the sonic turn, the corporeal turn, the spectral turn, the ontological turn, the non-human turn, the infrastructure turn, and so forth. This special issue of diacritics proposes to critically examine the phenomenon of the turn, focusing on the way in which it pivots on the juncture of a set of theoretical and methodological considerations. 

 We invite articles that:
