Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 5, 2018

The Midwest Modern Language Association will hold its annual conference in gorgeous Kansas City, Missouri, 15-18 November 2018. The conference's theme is "Consuming Cultures."

This year’s permenent MMLA session on creative prose considers how ideas, objects, experiences and cultures are consumed in the act of writing creatively. Specifically, how do creative writers use the ideas around them to produce their creative work? What type of research do they pursue and how do its results filter through the finished product? This session is interested in the ways in which creative writers use the material they find in order to make something new – a product that is in turn itself intended to be consumed.

Film International

http://filmint.nu/

 

Contributions are invited for a special edition of Film International devoted to the ‘mondo’ shock documentary film. The mondo genre was created in the 1960s by Gualtiero Jacopetti, Franco Prosperi and Paolo Cavara with their first feature Mondo Cane (Italy, 1962). The genre quickly became an international sensation, hated by most critics but admired by large audiences and the likes of John Waters, Sergio Leone, Boyd Rice and J.G. Ballard.

 

Contributions can explore any aspect of the mondo film including the pre-history of the genre and its legacy.

Miss Edgeworth is at Abbotsford, and has been for some time; a little, dark, bearded, sharp, withered, active, laughing, talking, impudent, fearless, outspoken, honest, Whiggish, unchristian, good-tempered, kindly, ultra-Irish body. I like her one day, and damn her to perdition the next. She is a very queer character; particulars some other time.

Reminder CFP - Film as Film Today: On the Criticism and Theory of V. F. Perkins

updated: 
Thursday, February 22, 2018 - 9:22am
University of Warwick
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 16, 2018

V. F. Perkins (1936-2016) was a foundational figure in the history of British film education, a pioneering theorist of the medium, and among the most insightful and eloquent writers on the art of film. His historical significance for the fields of film criticism and film study is uncontested. However, while Perkins’ work – particularly the seminal Film as Film (1972) – still influences certain strands of scholarship, its contemporary relevance for critics, theorists, and students is presently underappreciated. This symposium is dedicated to revaluating Perkins’ critical methods and arguments by exploring their continued utility for those studying film, television, audiovisual media, and aesthetics today.
