ReFocus: The International Directors Series: David Cronenberg

 

Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg is widely regarded as one of the finest proprietors of the body-horror genre. Cronenberg’s filmography traverses the realm of the corporeal beyond its bare form, testing the limits of what a body can do. His films explore the intricate relations between the market, science, and desire. Cronenberg also examines disease and illness, situating their grotesque ramifications in the soma and the psyche, while many other later film narratives diverge from Cronenberg’s earlier focus on body horror to exhibit a wide spectrum of directorial capabilities.

In the last four years, we have collectively witnessed an increasing number of uprisings, growing social movements, and calls for solidarity. Following the murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, for example, we saw calls for solidarity in the uprisings against police violence and the systemic, pervasive white supremacy that has structured our social institutions. As COVID-19 eviction moratoriums lifted in 2021, we saw solidarity between tenants and unhoused people in movements for housing rights. In May 2022, the Supreme Court’s reversal of the Roe v.

Hard Bodies: Aesthetic, Materiality, and Mediality of Masculinity in American and European Art and Visual Culture, c. 1900 – today

Goethe-Universität Frankfurt a.M., Germany, 9th–11th January 2025

Deadline: 15th July, 2024

 

Description:

The hard body is omnipresent in contemporary culture. It evokes purity, whiteness, and resistance to cracking or contamination. It is the result of disciplined self-optimization (physical training, a strict diet, dietary supplements, and/or surgery) and part of the iconography of white supremacy. Contemporary artists only refer to the hard male body to destroy it – like Candice Lin in her installation A Hard White Body (2017).

George Haggerty’s Legacy (deadline extended)

Sunday, June 16, 2024

As a Distinguished Professor at the University of California, Riverside, George Haggerty was a prolific scholar internationally recognized for his work across Restoration and eighteenth-century studies; British and American gothic; the history of gender and sexuality; lesbian, gay, and queer studies; Horace Walpole; and most recently, friendship.

Queering Arcadia: the early modern pastoral across gender and genre (RSA Boston 2025)

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024

In Richard Barnfield’s The Affectionate Shepheard (1594), the identity of the aptly-named Ganymede, who is gendered as a “boy,” appears to be labile in the eye of the poetic persona: “If thou wilt be my Boy, or else my Bride.” Such indefiniteness surrounding gender identity is typical of early modern English pastoral, which relies on classical precedents to idealise the life of enamoured shepherds in idyllic landscapes. Indefiniteness is also noticeable in the figure of the “amorous girl-boy” Ganymede in Thomas Lodge’s romance Rosalynde (1592), as well as in that of their Shakespearean counterpart in the pastoral comedy As You Like It (c. 1599).
