Studies in World Cinema
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 1, 2024

Since the 1990s, the impact of transnational flows in technology, finance and knowledge have significantly altered the trajectories of filmmaking from South-Asian countries. Among the new developments is indigenous cinema, in a multitude of linguistic varieties and cultural diversities. South Asia is home to several indigenous communities, with India alone having 104 million Adivasi communities across the nation, as per the 2011 census data (Adivasi being the collective term for indigenous groups in India). These communities share certain features, their heterogeneity being the most striking. Many of these communities belong to the margins, with minimal resources and social capital to ensure their wellbeing.

UAAC Panel Session | Session de panel

 

“Disability is properly speaking an aesthetic value, which is to say, it participates in a system of knowledge that provides materials for and increases critical consciousness about the way that some bodies make other bodies feel” (Tobin Siebers, Disability Aesthetics, 2010, 20).

This panel proposes an exploration of how the early 20th-century avant-garde movements, renowned for their radical innovations, drew profound inspiration from esoteric practices such as theosophy, occultism, spiritualism, mysticism, and Kabbalah. The focus will be on examining how these seemingly disparate worlds converged, shaping artistic production across various disciplines.

Theater plays, performance scripts, architectural drawings, musical scores, pantomimes, screenplays, dance notations, opera and ballet librettos, video game scripts—these and other similar types of artifacts and writings seem to belong to a common category, often referred to as ‘notations.’ A notation can be tentatively described as an artwork that responds to the situation of producing another artwork.

BEAR BOOK III: The Evolution of an International Queer Identity, Community, and Culture EXTENDED DEADLINE

Monday, June 30, 2025

 What began as a predominantly American gay white cisgender male identity and community has grown and transformed substantially since the publication of The Bear Book (1997) and Bear Book II in 2000. Since then bear culture has spread rapidly across the globe and been embraced embodied and transformed into new sex and gender identities beyond the hetero/homo binary and further inflected by non-Anglophonic cultures. Self-identifying bears are “queering” masculinities. These profound shifts in bear identity, community, and culture remain underdocumented and understudied.

National Narratives of the Far Right: The New American Mythopoeia

updated: 
Monday, May 13, 2024 - 2:37pm
Laura Jeffries, PhD
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 30, 2024

This year’s South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) conference theme, Seen and Unseen, considers how the perceptual lens influences our vision of the world around us. All national narratives are iterative projects that never quite arrive at the truth, but the (re)mainstreaming of far-right ideologies across American society has engendered a collection of false histories and mythopoetic frameworks shaped in their image, often aggressively vying for space in the public imagination. This session invites papers and multimedia presentations examining the development, dissemination, or impact of alternate visions/versions of any component of the American story and the principles that have animated it.

"Grey is flexible, malleable; it can be pushed and pulled in different directions, worked and reworked into new, unanticipated materiality and meaning. Grey is not fixed: it both reflects and absorbs light, and it extends the spectrum between black and white, between the extremes of all other colors. Grey has the capacity to move its viewer beyond the materiality of paint. [...] Grey is the color that best describes this perspective on the twentieth century, the metals in which it is built, the factories in which it is produced, the cities in which it is lived" (Guerin, 2018, 7-8).

Wednesday, May 15, 2024

In the last few decades, scholars in the Humanities have found it necessary to examine the fundamental underpinnings upon which their disciplines are built. One of the primary questions that animated this re-examination has been regarding the very terms of our engagement with countries and communities that inhabit radically  different  social  and moral life-worlds, living as they do outside the orbit of European Enlightenment values that still regulate both organization and practice within and outside the academy, across the world.

Call for Papers: Values – axiology – cultures

updated:

UMCS (Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Poland)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 6, 2024

We would like to invite you to submit proposals for articles for thematic issues "Values – axiology – of culture".

The dynamic reality of the second decade of the 21st century makes us think of the surrounding world as a sphere of constant change, full of violent events, breaking ties with what until recently seemed traditional and unchangeable. It also provokes reflection on how the sense of axiological crisis has been dealt with over the centuries, to what extent the methods of overcoming this crisis developed at that time have opened up new perspectives for the development of culture, literature and language, to what degree they have turned out to be a trap, and finally to what extent they are used in contemporary creative activities.

Pacifism - Special Issue and Book - Call for Abstracts

updated: 
Monday, May 13, 2024 - 1:32pm
Angelaki: journal of the theoretical humanities (Routledge)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 31, 2024

Edited by John Kinsella and Nicholas Birns

Abstract of c. 500 words by the end of May 2024. For publication April 2025. See below for full details.

The issue is concerned with pacifism as both a mode of conceptualising and also interacting with the world. Non-violence is a characteristic of various spiritual and secular modes of both maintaining peace and also enacting conflict resolution, and this issue will have a strong focus on these agencies, but further, pacifism as a system of perceiving and interacting with the world, as a ‘complete’ philosophy will be considered.
