Cinema at International Film Festivals : A virtual conference 7-11 December 2021

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 20, 2021

The virtual conference explores  how contemporary cinema negotiates the spaces at international film festivals. Our scope includes contemporary cinema from different parts of the world, including India and non-English speaking countries. The growing presence and proliferation of film festivals in their varied manifestations leads us to posit: What is the nature of contemporary transnational cinema that is attracting international attention? How does  this intersection play out in global reception, marketing, exhibition and  distribution? What kinds of academic and theoretical interventions can emerge from this development?

In recent decades, the practice of collaborative intellectual labor has had an unexpected resurgence, both among writers and artists, and within scholarly and academic spaces. Drawing on a rich history of intellectual, activist, and artistic practices of collaboration, new collectives and research groups have embraced collaborative forms of knowledge production to challenge the individualization of intellectual labor and the demands of the neoliberal episteme.

(ACLA 2022) The Elemental and The Formless

updated: 
Saturday, October 9, 2021 - 3:44pm
Oliver Aas (Cornell University)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

This seminar departs from the idea that we need a clearer understanding of elemental forms—traditional and non-traditional—that are in different stages of becoming formless (loss, disappearance, transmutation etc.). On the one hand, we build up on the critical genealogy of the formless (l’informe), a concept once popularized by Bataille in the surrealist journal Documents (1929-30) and later taken up by Bataille’s readers, most famously by Rosalind Krauss & Yves-Alain Bois (1997) and Georges Didi-Huberman (1995). While, on the other hand, we also welcome proposals that conceptualize the formless through different disciplinary vantage points and bring it to bear on the question of elemental forms.

I am seeking chapter submissions for an interdisciplinary edited collection concerning medieval and early modern medicine (from 1300-1700). The book will be interdisciplinary in nature. I am also especially interested in feminist and queer perspectives. It will focus on the influence of the ‘empirical turn’ (the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries) in Western medicine. It will include topics on any aspect of medicine, including but not limited to animal medicine, medical recipes, treatments, education, and facilities. The audience will be academic in nature, and I will seek publication with academic presses.

Cfp. Between XII.24 (November 2022), "Entering the Simulacra World: Aesthetic and Cultural Phenomenologies in Literature, Media, and the Arts"

updated: 
Friday, October 8, 2021 - 11:10am
Edited by Alessandra Ghezzani, Laura Giovannelli, Cristina Savettieri and Francesco Rossi
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

This issue of Between aims to investigate the phenomenology of simulacra and their range of functions (conceptual, cultural, literary, aesthetic, and in the media). What is meant here by “simulacrum” is any artificial creature that imitates or replicates the outward form and/or behaviour of living beings, especially human beings. When it comes to artefacts produced by technology – conceived in its broader sense as techne, and therefore also including magic and art – the simulacrum reveals itself as marked by operational autonomy and a variable degree of awareness.

"Future of Cities / Future Beyond Cities"

 

In the last decades, cities around the world have experienced unprecendented economic, political, social, and spatial transformations. As these changes bring new challenges for the ways in which we categorize the boundaries of the urban and the definitions of the city, urban theorists have been condering the possibilities of the twenty first century bringing in post-urban stage.

ACLA 2022: Multilingual, Transregional, Comparative Approaches to South Asian Literature

updated: 
Friday, October 8, 2021 - 11:09am
American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

The concept of South Asian literature is inherently unstable; South Asia is a regional term that covers several countries, some of which are still enemies recovering from shared histories of violence. In addition, the region of South Asia encompasses dozens of literary languages, including English – ironically the one “common” language of the region that is also the most "foreign." This panel seeks to animate comparison as a postcolonial and decolonizing practice in South Asian literary criticism. Comparison calls on scholars to think across boundaries of language, region or nation-state to imagine new points of connection among authors, texts, genres and modes.

This special issue of Women’s Studies aims to bring together new and exciting scholarship on the work of Eileen Myles.
