Small Cinemas Conference

From the Grassroots to the Global

 November 9-10, 2018

Boca Raton, Florida Atlantic University

 

In an increasingly globalized world where digital technology has gained greater access to socio-economically marginalized communities, the parameters of small cinemas have broadened their scope to include digitally shot material from portable devices like cellphones in an era of transnational internet distribution alongside its ongoing and historical association with national cinemas and celluloid-based products. 

 

*** Extended deadline:*** Reframing Medieval Bodies

updated: 
Monday, December 4, 2017 - 12:23pm
35th Annual Meeting of the Illinois Medieval Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 8, 2017

Medievalists have long engaged in the study of the body, producing some of the most influential contributions to the “bodily turn” of the 1980s and 1990s. The multidisciplinary conference “Reframing Medieval Bodies” invites reflection on past scholarship in this area and elaboration of new approaches and methods. We invite papers from the full range of disciplines in medieval studies, exploring bodies in their physiological, symbolic, political, economic, and performative capacities. Papers that revisit "the body" in light of bioarchaeological research and the history of medicine are especially welcome, as are papers that engage recent research on disability, gender, and race.

What Now? NYU Cinema Studies Student Conference

February 23-24, 2018

https://cinemastudiesconference.wordpress.com

What now? A discomfiting question. It compels a revisiting of our pasts, a consideration of where we stand today, and an articulation of the directions in which we expect, or hope, to go. 

As disciplinary boundaries become fluid, technology continues to change, and temporalities seem increasingly uncertain, it is essential to address the What Nows confronting our field today, and reconsider those from before.

“The relationship between myth and fantasy is a particularly convoluted one. ... [B]oth words have so many meanings and applications that they can be synonyms or direct contraries.”
