Shadow Cinema: The Historical and Production Context of Unmade Films

updated: 
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 6:07am
De Montfort University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 8, 2017

Unmade films are a burgeoning area of scholarly inquiry. The rise of the film archive, from the Michael Klinger Papers and Hammer Archive, to the John Boorman Papers and Stanley Kubrick Archive, all have unearthed a treasure trove of abandoned or halted projects, left unmade for a range of industrial, cultural and political contexts. This also extends to unreleased cinema, those projects that were abandoned in pre-production, cut short in production, or simply never distributed, or removed from circulation.

Shirley Jackson's Domesticity

updated: 
Monday, October 16, 2017 - 12:42pm
American Literature Assoc./Shirley Jackson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 31, 2017

Shirley Jackson wrote about about haunted houses, dysfunctional families, wayward children, attempts at maintaining a sane work-life balance, as well as restricted, doomed women in a period when Americans were constantly reminded of their civic duties to manage and maintain clean, comfortable, ‘normal’ domestic spaces. But as evidenced by letters from her fans, Shirley Jackson’s approach to domesticity opened up the possibility for something different, something more for women who felt trapped by their home lives.

This panel seeks work that addresses any aspect of Jackson’s domesticity in her fiction or nonfiction for the May 2018 ALA Conference in San Francisco.
