CFP “Recontextualized Images” (grad) (2/16/07;
(dis)junctions, 4/6/07-4/7/07)

The deadline for this CFP has been extended to
2/16/07. This call for papers is a proposed panel to
be held at (dis)junctions, University of California,
Riverside's 14th Annual Humanities Conference, to be
held April 6-7, 2007. The theme of this year’s
conference is “Malappropriation Nation.” In keeping
with the theme, this panel will address the
appropriation of images
(photographic or otherwise); taking an image or images
from their original context and placing them into
another. The reasons and results for such an act are
numerous. Proposed papers should address the reasons
and/or aesthetic, cultural, and psychological effects
of such recontextualizations. Topics could come from
many disciplines, including literature, theory, visual
arts, cultural studies, film studies, or journalism.

Possible topics:

Journalism/Photojournalism

Mass media/advertising

Film or television studies

Images of war
                                                      
Ethical or aesthetic issues

Visual arts (especially contemporary)

Popular culture

Imagery within literature
