Deadline: August 15, 2006

AREA: Nature and the Environment in Film and Television Documentaries

Early filmmakers often traveled the globe to introduce audiences to views of
far away places. Niagara Falls and scenes of the Holy Land shared the
screen with the dancing Carmencita and boxers Corbett and Fitzsimmons. Later, the
filmic exploration of the natural world added support to the argument that
movies were educational tools.

Obsidian III: Literature in the African Diaspora invites scholars from
all fields to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the independence of Ghana.
 The issue is set for publication in the summer of 2007. When Ghana began
the first African nation to gain it independence from England, it not only
set the stage for the liberation of Africa, but it precipitated cultural
changes across the African Diaspora and, indeed, across the globe. Essays
are solicited the literary and cultural legacy of Ghanaian independence in
Ghana, in Africa, in the African Diaspora and throughout the world. We
seek papers on individual works, authors and genres as well previously
unpublished creative works.

"Post-Millennial Queer Pop Culture and the Construction of Community"
A Panel at the 2007 NEMLA Convention in Baltimore Maryland, March 1-4 2007

This panel seeks papers that explore recent queer pop culture (including tv, film, art, comics, porn, music, theater, the internet) and how this pop culture cultivates and/or constructs community. To what extent do these pop culture products make and/or perpetuate assumptions about queer community? To what extent do they reflect the evolution of a queer community? Papers may examine representations of queer life in mainstream popular culture as long as the papers focus on the depiction of queer community.

Please email 250-300 word abstracts to Andrew Schopp at schoppa_at_ncc.edu.
