The 75th annual South Central Modern Language Association conference will be held in San Antonio, TX, October 11-14, 2018. Conference information is available at http://www.southcentralmla.org/
The 21st century has become inculcated with a sense of perpetual crisis, reflecting a world seemingly on the verge of catastrophe. This new age of anxiety is evident not only in the breakdown of traditional hegemonies, but also in an increasingly personal sense of fear, futility, and frustration for marginalized communities. Within this context, we invite essays for a collection that explores the topic/themes/ideas of resistance in works of myriad types of contemporary (~2005-2018) popular culture.
This is a CFP for a Special Session entitled "Transnational Poetries of Resonance" to take place at the 2019 Modern Language Association convention in Chicago, Illinois (3-6 January 2019).

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.
