*CFP: ‘Personified Body Parts and Organs with a Mind of Their Own in Cinema, Literature and Visual Culture’
*Editors*: Gilad Padva and Yair Koren Maimon
This collection initially examines cinematic, televisual, literary, visual and poetic representations of body parts who are vitalized, autonomized, individuated and animated. They become independent entities with a mind of their own. Instead of being parts of intricate mechanisms, these organs turn into independent, humanized and personified "bodies."
