Panel on Film Noir and Neo-Noir, Abstracts due April 15th
Out of the Past, Into the Postmodern: From Film Noir to Neo-Noir
From the Coen brothers to Christopher Nolan, the concept of film noir is being re-articulated in ever more provocative ways today. Submissions on aspects of film noir are welcome, especially in terms of the relationship between neo-noir and classic midcentury noir.
Topics could include, but are not limited to:
The femme fatale
Political/economic contexts for Noir and Neo-Noir
Neo-noir and postmodernity
This is an approved special session of PAMLA's 2013 conference in San Diego. Abstracts of no more than 500 words are due April 15. Please submit abstracts to PAMLA's conference website.
