Cinema’s Natures: Comparative Approaches to Ecocinema

Film scholars are today well aware of cinema’s multiple connections to the so-called “natural” world. From the very beginning, the medium’s technical affordances allowed it to draw attention to the hitherto unseen aspects of our environments, showing us in close-up and time lapse the minutiae of animal and plant life – what Siegfried Kracauer famously called the “reality of another dimension” (1997). More fundamentally, cinema’s longstanding dependence on a congeries of natural resources – silver, petroleum, gelatine – and the effects on screen of its inescapable “hydrocarbon imagination” (Bozak 2011), situate it both with and against the world it depicts.

This session explores cultural intersections between the theory of the literature and the topics pertaining to the visuality through iconographic figurations, reflecting creative resilience and bio-sustainability in modern times. Proposals are sought that consider ecocritically the convergences of literary representations and figurative arts in a comparative diachronic light, or those with a particular focus on envisionment of contemporary aspects and the nowadays context.

We are currently  searching for one or two additional essays to round out a collection exploring the way abortion is depicted in popular culture. We already have a publisher and a deadline of September 30th.

 

We  are looking for essays that deal with popular-culture depictions of abortion in the last 20 years that are changing the narrative about abortion in a wide range of popular culture, including film, television, literature, podcasts, and social media. We have a tight timeline with the publisher, so projects would need to be underway.

 

Underlying questions of the project include, but are not limited to:

The Conference on College Composition and Communication’s position statement on Scholarship in Rhetoric, Writing, and Composition (2018), starts from the premise that the majority of writing scholars will find employment in English Departments, Writing Programs, Writing Centers, etc. The statement goes on to acknowledge that “rhetoric, writing, and composition scholarship addresses how texts are composed, conveyed, and received in a variety of media and for a variety of purposes and audiences, both inside and outside the academy. Scholars investigate writing processes and products in schools and universities, in academic disciplines, in the workplace, in the public arena, in the home, and in digital/virtual environments” (n. pg.).

What does it mean to call someone “the picture of health”?

The WHO’s 1949 constitution stated that “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” More recently “One Health”—a model of health that includes the social contexts and environmental situation that limits or conduces to both individual and communal healthfulness—has emerged.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS Journal of Comparative Literature and AestheticsSpecial Issue: New Perspectives in African Philosophy  Guest Editor: Adoulou N. Bitang (Tel Aviv University, Israel) For over three decades, from the middle of the 20th century onward, reflection about African philosophy revolved around the question of its existence or non-existence (following that of the capacity of Africans and Blacks to philosophize), or the other question of its nature (i.e., its characteristics, especially in relation to European philosophy). To a certain extent, African philosophy is still concerned with these questions today. For the most part, this treatment of African philosophy has a colonial background and bears a colonial flavor.

Migration is broadly defined as the movement of people from one place to another and the people pursuing this journey are called migrants. However, there are various distinctions within the concept of migration that relates to factors that define if an individual should be considered a migrant, immigrant, refugee, or asylum seeker depending on their length of stay and motivation to migrate. Two major distinctions overarch all forms of movements that individuals make. First, voluntary, and involuntary; second, short term versus long term. Voluntary migrants include sojourners such as people who go abroad to study or visit for business purposes whereas involuntary migrants include refugees and asylum seekers seeking haven from ideology-based persecution.

The panel intends to explore the depiction of Muslim American identity across various discourses and works of Muslim American authors, filmmakers, novelists, and musicians who draw upon such identities. The diverse emergence of Muslim American identity calls for insights that examine such identities depicted in various forms of text and talk. Keeping in context the theme of NeMLA’s 54th convention “resilience” the session draws on the theoretical underpinnings of Edward Said’s notion of Orientalism in order to further investigate discursive constructions of Muslim identities along with various discourses and the role Muslim Americans play in shaping these identities.

Health, Illness, and Injury in Professional Wrestling

A Special Section of a forthcoming issue of Survive and Thrive

Recent commentary has focused on the declining health and lack of access to health care among professional wrestlers (e.g. John Oliver's commentary here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8UQ4O7UiDs).  Hired as contractors, not employees, and so often denied benefits (from health insurance to retirement), professional wrestlers become, as they age, tragic:  celebrities in their prime for their physical prowess, as they age, they launch gofundme pages to cover the costs of essential medical care.

Regis College, Department of Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities is pleased to Announce a Symposium on the Third Anniversary of the Canonization of Saint John Henry Newman and 77th Anniversary of the first Newman Symposium at Regis College. Friday, October 21, 2022.

Conference Theme: How to be a 21st-century saint. In October 2019, the Church canonized five new saints, including Cardinal Newman. An analysis of Newman’s work and persona offers important insights into the practices and patterns of behavior that define the contemporary Catholic Church, since, in the words of Peter Burke, saints “reflect the values of the culture which sees them in a heroic light.”

In Our Time: F. Scott Fitzgerald in the 21st Century 

Linnaeus University, Växjö, Sweden June 26-July 2, 2023

Niklas Salmose, Site Director; Helen M. Turner, Program Director

As we move through the 2020s, anticipating and celebrating centennial milestones in the life and career of F. Scott Fitzgerald, it is easy for us to view him as a writer defined by his historical moment. This conference aims to position Fitzgerald as a figure relevant to contemporary theoretical, social, and political concerns. Just as the 1920s were a period of flux and transition, our current decade is proving equally as turbulent. What does this writer have to say to readers living through a period of change and uncertainty?
