CFP: Approaching Race and Ethnicity in Nordic Film Culture

In 2017, the head of the Swedish Film Institute (SFI), Anna Serner, highlighted the distinct lack of ethnic diversity in Swedish film culture and signalled ambitions to ‘broaden representation, both behind and in front of the cameras’ (2017: 4). Echoing these sentiments, the Danish Film Institute (DFI) and the Norwegian Ministry of Culture (NFI) have outlined targets for ‘increasing cultural diversity and reaching new audiences’ (NFI 2018). These statements reflect the Nordic film industries’ aspiration to address the significant underrepresentation of black, Asian and minority ethnic voices in the creative sectors across the Nordic region.

Hip-hop is one of the most successful forms of global cultural production today. Since its emergence in the Bronx neighborhood of New York City, it has spread around the world and exerted a considerable impact not only on pop culture, but also on social debates around race, class, language, nationality, gender, and a range of other issues. One topic that is rarely discussed, however, is the relationship between hip-hop and the environment.

Jonathan Bayliss created a fictional science called "dromenology" in his Gloucesterman series which was meant to study collective human endeavor. In contrast to the Romantic concept of individual action, this science describes activity conducted by humans as groups: work and play, religious ritual, and artistic endeavors such as dance or drama. He conceptualized such activity as the work that staves off entropy in the thermodynamic systems we call communities or societies.

CONFERENCE POSTPONED TO SEPTEMBER 23-24 2021

Considering the recent global events, we have unfortunately decided to postpone the conference (originally scheduled for September 25-26, 2020) to a further date. The safety of our speakers, staff, and academic cohort has been the decisive argument in this matter. 

We will announce a new date as soon as possible, but the most likely period is the second half of September 2021.

Dear Cultural Studies Community,

We regret to inform you that Ege University 18th Cultural Studies Symposium, which is supposed to be held in May 2021, is cancelled due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases all over the world. We, as the Organizing Committee members, believe hosting an online event would not suit the spirit of our symposium which is especially prominent for gathering academics from all the branches of social sciences along with other disciplines in Izmir.

We hope to actualise the event in May 2022 with the expectation of a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases and are looking forward to welcoming you with an exciting topic.

Thank you for your understanding.
Stay safe,

Dr. Funda Civelekoglu

Media Awards: Beyond the EGOT (Velvet Light Trap #89)

The Velvet Light Trap
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

The “big four” American entertainment awards—the Emmy for television, the Grammy for music, the Oscar for film, and the Tony for theater, often referred to by the “EGOT” acronym—have long served as a barometer of mainstream taste cultures in their respective fields. While literature on media awards is not completely absent, its scope has been narrow. Popular press works on the somewhat standardized journalistic narratives surrounding the EGOT, particularly the Oscars. Scholarly literature has largely focused on awards as they pertain to the international art cinema circuit and its attached film festivals, such as the Cannes Film Festival.

Censorship and blind spots: the BBC’s silences

 

The BBC's reputation for impartiality and independence is one of the cornerstones of its value system, which also underpins its self-declared mission to "inform, educate, and entertain". However, these values have constantly been redefined as several forms of censorship and self-censorship have been applied in the context of conflict with political or economic powers. This means that the role and independence of the BBC as a public service needs to be questioned and the grey areas and silences of the BBC from its creation in 1922 to the beginning of its digital era in 1995 need to be the objects of inquiry.

Children’s literature as a field is not bounded by geography, and so critical discussions of the children’s literary tradition outside of a US context appear frequently in journals ranging from The New England Reading Association, to The Lion and the Unicorn, and The Reading Teacher. In fact, Children’s Literature Association Quarterly dedicated the Winter 2018 issue to “Migration, Refugees, and Diaspora in Children's Literature.” Despite the abundance of critical work, pedagogical resources such as Evelyn B.
