De-Westernizing Horror: Reframing the Genre Cinemas of Asia

King’s College London

Monday 31st October – Tuesday 01st November, 2022

Keynote Speaker: Meheli Sen (Rutgers University)

In 2012, Saër Maty Bâ and Will Higbee published their necessary and urgent intervention, De-Westernizing Film Studies. The principle aim of their collection was to “consider what forms a challenge to the enduring vision of film as a medium – and film studies as a discipline – modelled on ‘Western’ ideologies, theoretical and historical frameworks, critical perspectives as well as institutional and artistic practices, might take today” (2012: 1).

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

From the rapes of Lucretia and Beatrice Cenci in Ancient Roman art and literature to the #MeToo movement, women have long faced oppression that often engenders the sense of trauma and defiance. Reflecting on the 2023 NEMLA Convention theme “Resilience,” this seminar welcomes papers that explore how the above scenarios are depicted, and resisted, in British literature. Topics may include but are not limited to the Gothic and usurped female agency, female Gothic oneirocriticism, feminist interventions, spectrums of mentation, rectification of misunderstanding and stigmatisation, resilient female characters, and trauma in relationships (familial, romantic, professional, etc.).

Thinking Beyond Resilience: Indigenous (Hi)Stories of Continuity and Futurity

updated: 
Wednesday, August 10, 2022 - 1:41pm

Friday, September 30, 2022

Etymologically, the term “resilience”--from the Latin re- and salire, “to leap in return”--refers to the capability of a thing, in response to some stimulus, to return to its original form or state. The term connotes a dual activity, simultaneously an undoing and a rebuilding. But in Indigenous contexts, under the realities of settler-colonialism, the aspiration to “return to original form” is a fraught enterprise, as it inevitably encounters the romanticized conceptual dichotomies of traditional / modern, sedentary / nomadic, cultural / political, and historical / mythical.

NeMLA 2023—Affectively Tuning into Daily Experiences of Energy and Natural Resource Extraction in the Americas

Streaming a movie. Waiting in line for gas. Drinking a tall glass of water. These are day-to-day experiences that rely on forms of energy and natural resource extraction that are often hidden in plain view, entangled with dynamics of colonialism, transnational flows, digital assemblages, stock markets and neoliberalism. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly made these entanglements more felt. As such, we are tasked with unraveling these complex embodied and sensorial daily experiences of energy and extraction.

What is resilience for people with disabilities? What is recovery? 

Narratives of illness, trauma and disability are often framed to emphasize recovery. Reflecting on resiliency, constructed ideas of normalcy, and “crip time,” Ellen Samuels writes: “Disability and illness have the power to extract us from linear, progressive time with its normative life stages and cast us into a wormhole of backward and forward acceleration, jerky stops and starts, tedious intervals and abrupt endings” (2017).

Cinema’s Natures: Comparative Approaches to Ecocinema

Film scholars are today well aware of cinema’s multiple connections to the so-called “natural” world. From the very beginning, the medium’s technical affordances allowed it to draw attention to the hitherto unseen aspects of our environments, showing us in close-up and time lapse the minutiae of animal and plant life – what Siegfried Kracauer famously called the “reality of another dimension” (1997). More fundamentally, cinema’s longstanding dependence on a congeries of natural resources – silver, petroleum, gelatine – and the effects on screen of its inescapable “hydrocarbon imagination” (Bozak 2011), situate it both with and against the world it depicts.

Eco-Art and Literature

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

This session explores cultural intersections between the theory of the literature and the topics pertaining to the visuality through iconographic figurations, reflecting creative resilience and bio-sustainability in modern times. Proposals are sought that consider ecocritically the convergences of literary representations and figurative arts in a comparative diachronic light, or those with a particular focus on envisionment of contemporary aspects and the nowadays context.
