Transgender representation is currently at an all-time high. Whether it be in cinema, literature, or social networks, the visibility of trans individuals has tremendously increased. ​Changes in culture have allowed the transgender community to feel safer in coming forward with their stories, and therefore, this new movement has been pioneered by trans women, trans men, and non-binary individuals. For example, Lexie, the trans woman behind the ​popular Instagram account Agressively Trans (@aggressively_trans), published the book Une histoire de genres in February 2021. Petite fille, a 2020 documentary directed by Sébastien Lifshitz has won several prizes in various festivals.

Cinema at International Film Festivals : A virtual conference 7-11 December 2021

updated: 
Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 9:49am

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 20, 2021

The virtual conference explores  how contemporary cinema negotiates the spaces at international film festivals. Our scope includes contemporary cinema from different parts of the world, including India and non-English speaking countries. The growing presence and proliferation of film festivals in their varied manifestations leads us to posit: What is the nature of contemporary transnational cinema that is attracting international attention? How does  this intersection play out in global reception, marketing, exhibition and  distribution? What kinds of academic and theoretical interventions can emerge from this development?

Contemporaries at Post45 

The Art of Drag (Racing): Reading The Fast and the Furious

Despite its outsized popular impact – which spans 20 years, 9 films, a chart-topping song and several viral memes – The Fast Saga remains under-studied. This call for papers invites sustained inquiry into these films for a collection in Post45’s Contemporaries forum, seeking to understand the implications of this series in and on the cultural imagination, especially given the questions posed by its notable divergence from the action film genre.

*Deadline Extended (Oct 15): Dance as Site-ation: Adapting Literature, Film, Media, Place, and Performance (NeMLA 2022)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 2:01pm

Friday, October 15, 2021

Dancing, perhaps most famously of the Tik Tok variety, has helped many cope and adapt to the past year’s pandemic, making people feel connected in an almost choreographed way. Not only infiltrating certain web sites, site-specific dance—choreographed work inspired by a specific space or place—is becoming increasingly relevant, especially in environmental terms. Recent projects such as Karole Armitage’s “On the Nature of Things” or Jody Sperling’s “Polar Rhythms” have taken nature, and more specifically climate change and other environmental issues, as their source of inspiration. A transformative art, dance offers the possibility of intimate connection and even continuous metamorphosis.

Film Exhibition: The Italian Context (Symposium / Edited Volume)

Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 12:32pm
Damien Pollard & Edward Bowen
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 17, 2021

This symposium and edited volume seeks to draw together research into cinematic exhibition in Italy throughout the twentieth and twenty-first century. Current research into Italian cinema is continuously expanding its purview to consider the great range of genres, forms and contexts that have been engaged by filmmakers working in the country. Similarly, recent studies have shone vital light on the complex make up of Italy’s film audiences, and on the practices of film producers and distributors in the country. This project will continue this critical expansion by investigating the myriad ways in which film media (both Italian and foreign) has been exhibited and consumed in Italy.

*Updated Deadline Extension to 10/15/21* NeMLA 2022 - Exploring Plurality: Queering Feminism(s), Neoliberalism, and the Commodification of Intersectionality

updated: 
Monday, October 4, 2021 - 10:58pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Feminism does not exist in singularity, and its plurality centers disenfranchised narratives and perspectives. Due to the interwoven structural oppressions based on the social construct of identities, intersectionality’s formation provides a foundation and praxis to theorize and contribute to the dismantling of systemic oppressions. The whitening of intersectionality participates in commodification (Bilge 2015), in stark opposition to its original intentionality (Crenshaw 1991), and calls into question the plurality of feminism as if a hegemonic conceptualization of ‘feminism’ would be preferred, enhanced, or (en)forced.

This roundtable is a combined showcase of published work that began on a NeMLA panel and an opportunity to extend the conversation from the original panel and publication to look at the increasingly global enterprise of RuPaul’s Drag Race and its pedagogical power. Across its chapters, RuPedagogies of Realness: Essays on RuPaul’s Drag Race and Teaching and Learning (McFarland 2021) tackles issues from heterotopia, pop-linguistics, philosophies of co-productive learning, and televised curricula to cultural appropriation, sports as pedagogy, stand-up as pedagogy, and even digital drag…right into the COVID-19 pandemic.

Monday, October 18, 2021

Humanity as a whole and on a global scale has had to reflect on how it would proceed in the wake of a pandemic that has lasted longer than it has expected and has tested its ability to adapt to and invent new ways of being and moving. Performing artists in efforts to literally and aesthetically survive has had to learn to deal with the limited availability of and accessibility to the stage. While in previous times indoor and outdoor stages as well as open public spaces have been readily available to offer their work to audiences, now they are forced to deal with isolation and mediation.

DEADLINE EXTENDED--NeMLA 2022 Panel: Locked Up--An American Landscape

Thursday, September 30, 2021 - 4:34pm

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

It’s a statistic we hear often: America incarcerates more people per capita than any other nation. Yet, most Americans can go about their daily lives without thinking about their physical proximity to prisons or the people locked within. With few exceptions, prisons are built in rural, remote areas, set back from main highways and not visible from shopping centers, restaurants, and housing developments. Likewise, America’s political landscape works hard to obfuscate the realities of life locked up, reducing discourses of mass incarceration to shocking statistics and incomprehensible numbers.
