Compulsory Screening: Australian Cinema and the Question of Borders

The Westerly Centre at the University of Western Australia invites
abstracts for an edited collection of essays addressing Australian
cinematic experience in the light recent debates concerning
immigration, border security, refugees and the detention of asylum
seekers. We are interested in how these events have helped
precipitate a new understanding of nation and how this in turn might
have affected cinematic expression, changed the kind of films that
are produced, or made earlier films ring with new resonances.

first time, or the onset of menstruation?
    * What is the significance of confirmation or circumcision?
    * What greater privileges come in the gaining of a driver's licence
or the right to vote?

>From Buffy to Blade to Bram Stoker, we are looking for
papers and presentations that cover the vampire in
literature, culture, and film (with a reading time of
15-20 minutes) for the National Popular Culture
Association/American Culture Association Conference in
Boston, MA, April 4-7, 2007. This is a fairly broad
and open-ended topic as the vampire is found in many
mediums, especially in popular culture, so just about
any topic on the vampire is sought for this new area
of study at the PCA/ACA. Graduate students are
particularly encouraged to send proposals.
