PANEL PROPOSAL: SCMS conference, Vancouver BC March 2006

University of North Carolina, Charlotte

Out of time: fiction film and the non-chronological plot

This panel will explore the nature and implications of fiction films
that feature non-chronological plots. In recent years we have had
interesting new additions to this mode of filmic storytelling: in the
US, Pulp Fiction, 21 Grams, and Memento for example. What can we learn
about filmic storytelling, temporality in film, and therefore
storytelling and temporality in general by studying such films? All
theoretical orientations welcome.

 Filming the Ethnic City

We're looking for papers that consider films that portray ethnic communities
in urban environments. Papers could look at one film or a number of films.
We are particularly interested in analysis concerned with the movement of
ethnic populations since the mid-1970s, as the international economy is
becoming increasingly globalized.=
