seminar at the 2006 ACLA: American Comparative Literature Association
Annual Conference, Princeton University, March 23-26, 2006. The goal of this seminar is to reflect upon the
dehumanizing and uprooting capacity of language through the concept of
"exapropriation," a term coined by Derrida in his later works. The term
exappropriation, when applied to language, expresses the double move of how
language puts the human in place (hands it the qualities that are proper to it, appropriation) and at the same time

Trash Cinema: A Primer for Beginners (collection)

UPDATED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 1 January, 2006

CALL FOR PAPERS: Collection of critical essays on trash cinema

We invite submissions for a critical anthology about the ever-expanding
world of national and international trash cinema.

As fans of trash cinema, while we do like to think of the form as being
utterly anti- or counter- "mainstream" cinema, in the ways it challenges
or reworks many of its assumptions, we are amazed at how many trash
favorites (both personal and more perennial, if such a thing exists)
have a striking formal similarity to - as well as an appeal for devotees
of - the "traditional" film canon's fare.
