The Role of Language in Romanian Cinema

Proposals: 1st of June 2021
Papers due: 1st of November 2021

As part of its 2021 regional focus on Romanian cinema, the East European Film Bulletin is preparing a special issue on language in Romanian cinema. How do cinematographers and directors work together to create meaning through visual signals?

We are looking for contributions both about language in the linguistic sense and about film language. The two themes our special issue thus aims to bring together are 1) how human language is rendered onscreen, and 2) how the film language employed in films can be analyzed from a linguistic perspective.

deadline for submissions:

Piotr Alekseevich Kropotkin (1842-1921) was one of the most prominent advocates of anarchism during his adult life, but also a famous intellectual and activist in Europe and further afield. In this centenary year of his death, we welcome you to join us for a discussion about his legacy, influence and relevance today. This conference will discuss his life and his work, but also his afterlife. Since February 1921, the world has lived without Kropotkin, but in many ways his ideas and his legacy persist. This conference seeks to specify, debate, contest, and carry on that legacy.
