Talking about different political slogans that she has written for different eras, namely “Cyborgs for Earthly Survival” during Reagan’s era, “Run fast Bite Hard” for father Bush’s era and “Shut up and Train” for George W. Bush’s presidency , Donna Haraway declares that today her slogan is “Stay with the Trouble!” (137) Amidst the very real and imminent threats of environmental disasters, rise of racism, and an expanding precarity, it is in fact very hard to stay with the trouble rather than going elsewhere to save ourselves.

CFP: Cine-feminisms and the Academy Symposium

UNSW Sydney, 12-13th December 2019

 

The contemporary media landscape is shaped by increasing precarity and awareness of gendered issues. The global screen industry is grappling with the cultural and industrial shifts precipitated by the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. For some, the Harvey Weinstein revelations and subsequent scandal resulted in a re-evaluation of the gendered operation of Hollywood. The industry has responded on the red carpet, through the media and in film festival juries. What role do – and can – forms of film feminisms (or cine-feminism) play within this context?

The Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein initiated what has become a very long and multifaceted conversation about James Joyce in relation to film.  He was the first director to contemplate an adaptation of Ulysses, for instance, and the only one to discuss such a project with the author himself. Although that adaptation project never came to fruition, Eisenstein was the first film theorist who used Ulysses and Finnegans Wake as reference points to describe how film worked and how it might continue to evolve in the future. He was also the first filmmaker to apply these concepts in practice.
