Call for Papers
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.

Tuesday, June 1, 2021

Film scholar Robin Wood famously argued that “central to the effect and fascination of horror films is their fulfillment of our nightmare wish to smash the norms that oppress us and which our moral condition teaches us to revere.” From the very beginnings of the silent film era to our present day, the horror genre has continued to attract audiences and proliferate across multiple modes of film and media—addressing our fears, anxieties, and sometimes our deepest, darkest fantasies.

This Special Issue on “Remembering Genocides and the Holocaust” invites contributions from different fields, such as the film, music, museums, and literature.

Following periods of social, political, and economic turbulence governments and communities around the world rally in efforts designed to preserve, challenge, or radically overhaul the status quo. Although there is now some reason for optimism, we find ourselves faced with the aftermath of numerous upheavals. Is this a unique opportunity to use the tattered threads of the social fabric to make something new? Where do we go from here?

The Uses of Color in US Popular Cultural Production and Representation

deadline for submissions:

A dark urban setting scattered with dots of light. Yellow gas flames shoot up against a glowing red horizon, creating an almost hellish feel. Flying cars pierce the atmosphere, revealing the orange smog haze that reappears in urban sequences throughout the movie. As the camera moves closer to futuristic, monumental buildings, cold white beams of light transition to interiors dominated by blue hues. Sequences in the Tyrell Corporation are marked by cool tones as opposed to Deckard’s warm-toned private spaces. How would we feel and think about a cult film like Blade Runner (1982) if cinematographic choices about color had been made differently?

Las Vegas and the Absurd

updated: 
Tuesday, April 6, 2021 - 4:59pm
118th PAMLA Conference - Las Vegas, NV
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

Las Vegas is a town that has commodified the absurd and the spectacle. Crime bosses are glamorous, rules are just suggestions, bodies are for showcasing; essentially, fantasy is reality. This is the image of Las Vegas most often depicted in literature and film adaptations. The city of Las Vegas recently changed its official slogan from, “What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas” to, “What happens in Vegas, Only happens in Vegas.” This session is looking for investigations into the absurd as reality and spectacle as art or escape through literature about Las Vegas.

"A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens – second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our day’s events to the vast incommunicable constructs of psychopaths."
