“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.
Yellowstone (2018, Paramount Network), Taylor Sheridan’s neo-Western television series that premiered in 2018, has grown into a cultural phenomenon. Not only has the show itself been enormously popular (as measured by its ratings and fan following within the United States and South Africa, for example), but its characters, and the Dutton family that are central to the story, have since been incorporated into a shared story universe covering a period from 1881 to the present day. This story is centred around the fictional Yellowstone ranch in Montana, which is both the main setting and metaphorical heart of the show.

CFP - Unauthorized: Media Piracy, Digital Forgery and Generative AI
The specter of replicating – movement, physical reality, and life itself - has haunted cinema ever since Maxim Gorky stepped into the Lumières’ “Kingdom of Shadows.” Over a century later, digital copies and online piracy of media content raise questions of distribution, access, and emerging technologies’ impact on authorship, perpetuating the age of the unregulated reproduction. More recently, AI’s entry into creative production has made concerns over image duplication and fabrication as urgent as ever.
We are proposing a special issue of Post-45 Journal, titled “Race and Animality Reconsidered.” In light of a host of recent interventions and discourses emerging from Black studies, postcolonial studies, environmental studies, and other fields, this special issue seeks to highlight contemporary work on the entanglements of racialization or racialized gendering and animalization, including what this means for the material lives of human and nonhuman animals since WWII.

In July 2023, a tech startup called “Simulation Inc” released an AI technology that the company claims will make it possible to generate entire t.v. episodes—including dialogue, voice acting, animation, and editing—from nothing more than a two-sentence prompt. Somewhat oddly—and provoking suspicion that the project might be a hoax or internet prank—Simulation Inc’s website lists a fake address under their contact info: 500 Baudrillard Drive, San Francisco, CA.
Consent-Based Theatre Pedagogy: Anti-Oppressive Practices for Youth Performance
Consent-based performance practices have been widely discussed in recent years–specifically those practices related to the staging of intimacy in live performance and in film. While scholarship dedicated to the practices, theories, and politics of consent in theatrical and cinematic labor continues to accumulate, the use of consent-based practices in theatrical settings to impact the artistic and social-emotional learning of youth remains largely underexplored.
