From the moment the clock struck midnight (or so it seems) on January 1, a climate of uncertainty has loomed over the year 2020: a contentious presidential campaign, the mismanagement of a global pandemic, and widespread civil unrest over egregious acts of racial injustice have thrown the United States into a state of disarray. These incidents, the result of the outgoing administration’s efforts to disrupt and upend traditional governing institutions, have instilled unparalleled levels of uncertainty and distrust in the American public. Nowhere is this more obvious in contemporary American life than recently conducted surveys suggesting public confidence in a COVID-19 vaccine is well under the 70% threshold needed to achieve herd immunity.

We are a lively academic collective interested in investigating the articulation of the numerous and heterogeneous representations which have been constructing images of the US. Our research delves into how the US—their history, society, and diverse cultures—have been represented in popular media and cultural creations. Our blog aims at providing a collaborative, engaging, and fair environment for any interested scholar, promoting the sharing of knowledge, experience, and ideas across disciplines and thematic fields. We’re also working to foster a stimulating space for early career researchers and postgraduate students in North American studies, thus we’ll warmly welcome their proposals as well.

2007 has been heralded as one of the best in film history. Numerous exceptional films were released, and some actors and directors reached career pinnacles with their 2007 work (the Coen Brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, Daniel Day-Lewis, George Clooney). I am soliciting 250-word abstracts on any topic related to films from that year, whether as single-film studies, comparative analyses, or studies in cinematic trends. Your presentation can involve films from other years, as long as the 2007 film plays a central role in the argument. I am especially interested in essays on any of the following films:

The study of conspiracism overlaps with the study of esotericism, occultism, and magic in several respects.  In addition to the frequent significance of secrecy and clandestine interactions in the history of esoteric, occult, and magical movements, their association (real or imagined) with heterodox religious movements, political subversion, and intelligence organizations has led to close association of these conceptions with each other in popular cultural imagination as well as in their own subcultural milieux.  Esotericists, occultists, and magicians have themselves engaged in conspiracist conception, generated conspiracy theories, and projected them onto others, as well as themselves being the recipients of such projections by both religious and secula

Archetypal and Jungian psychology have a well-established and verified relationship with esoteric and occult worldviews, a circumstance demonstrated even more clearly with the publication of Jung's Liber Novus.  However, while there is considerable literature on the intersections of the general background of psychodynamic origins with the occult milieu, they have been explored less systematically and also less sensationally.  Similarly, while parapsychology occupies a significant place in popular cultural lore that overlaps with conspiracism and also the study of the paranormal, systematic inquiry into the relationship of scientific psychology with occult, esoteric, magical, and mystical worldviews has also been less prominent, though present non
