Cinematic approaches to spontaneous individual creativity. How does cinema
inflect or challenge the link between artist and object? How have films
addressed the constitution of creative acts? How have they balanced the
diverse factors that make claims on the essence of creation in the western
tradition, including personal expression, aesthetics, medial specificity,
and ideology? Essays on Cocteau''s Orphic Trilogy are especially encouraged,
but any essay on creation in cinema is welcome. 250-500 word abstracts by
9/15/07 as Word or .rtf attachments to
