Wednesday, January 6, 2021

2007 has been heralded as one of the best in film history. Numerous exceptional films were released, and some actors and directors reached career pinnacles with their 2007 work (the Coen Brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, Daniel Day-Lewis, George Clooney). I am soliciting 250-word abstracts on any topic related to films from that year, whether as single-film studies, comparative analyses, or studies in cinematic trends. Your presentation can involve films from other years, as long as the 2007 film plays a central role in the argument. I am especially interested in essays on any of the following films: 

 

American Gangster

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

I'm seeking abstracts of 250 words due March 7, 2021 for an edited collection under contract with an academic publisher entitled "Women Writing Trauma in Literature."  The book considers literary representations of trauma by women writers. Rather than focusing on one time period or nationality, this collection considers a global range of women’s experiences with or depictions of traumatic encounters in literature. In particular, this book examines the relationship between trauma, identity, and literary form. Send abstracts to laura.leigh.alexander@gmail.com. Notification of accepted essays by April 1, 2021. Completed chapters (4000-6000 words) due by July 2021.

"Crossroads: The Risks of Making Choices"

Virtural Conference: April 16th-17th

 

"Each decision we make closes off a series of possible alternatives. What happens if we try to make several contradictory decisions at once and keep them separate, in open series? A political life, an academic life, an emotional life, family life, sexual, religious, all of which may have diffuse (not to say clandestine) relationships between them" Ricardo Piglia, The Way Out (258)

Information, resources, and diseases are all things that are communicable across real and imagined borders. They are transmitted by the World Wide Web, television, highways and trains, diasporas, marketplaces, governments, viral media, social events, casual associations, the human system, and more. Networks as a model and metaphor for examining the structures of societies, politics, culture, and the body appear in seminal texts across disciplines, including Norbert Wiener’s Cybernetics (1948), Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish (1975), Jean-François Lyotard’s The Postmodern Condition (1979), Donna Haraway’s “A Cyborg Manifesto” (1985), and Timothy Morton’s Ecological Thought (2010).
