Friday, April 20, 2018

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.

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.
