CALL FOR PAPERS

Documentation, Demonstration, Dematerialization:
American Art and Cinema of the Late 1960s and 1970s

November 17 - 18, 2006
University of California, Berkeley

Hosted by the Graduate Film Working Group, UC Berkeley

The late 1960s and 1970s mark a period of dramatic change in the visual
culture of the United States, from avant-garde art and filmmaking
practices to documentary, Hollywood cinema, and the dissemination of
video. This is, after all, the period when:

* Modernist painting gives way to pop, minimalism, and the language-,
photography-, process-, and performance-based activities of conceptual art

Call for Papers: High-, Middle-, Lowbrow

A panel for the Fifth Annual Cultural Studies Association meeting at Portland State University, April 19-21, 2007.

This panel seeks papers that explore the concept of the "brows" of taste as they function in contemporary cultural studies. Do the brows have any heuristic or descriptive value in the twenty-first century? Are they more useful as a way of understanding the past? What can they help us say about the way cultural texts build cultural capital or destroy it? How are they linked to or separated from socioeconomic class?
