Subject: dis/utopia

Voyeuristic television programs such as Survivor and Big Brother, coupled
with the easy accessibility of information via the Internet and other modern
information sources, are a startling echo of the Distopian writings of
Orwell and Huxley. Have we succumbed to a Distopian order, or are we simply
on a bumpy path to a Utopian world?

Chapters and appropriate chapter suggestions are sought for:

"Signs of Life: Medicine and the Cinema" will consider how medicine,

This is a call for papers for the 4th Issue of M/C/T a journal/e-zine
concerned with Media, Culture and Technology. For this issue, we have the
following special theme:

The Fake Issue

What's real? What's true? These may seem like outdated questions in these
hyper wired times of ours. Indeed, as Jean Baudrillard pointed out years
ago, the question of authenticity no longer matters in the same way, now
that we are fully immersed in an environment of virtual simulation. The
quest for authenticity is not only pointless but dissatisfying as well.

The Journal of Narrative Theory (JNT) seeks submissions for an
upcoming special issue (Fall 2000) on cinema and film. Of particular
interest ar papers that situate the production, distribution, and
reception of cinema and films within their historical, theoretical,
ideological and pedagogical contexts. For example, papers that
historicize film genres, theorize about film historiography, or read
films as ideological texts that manufacture consent around class,
gender, and race issues are encouraged. Papers about avante-garde,
documentary, and children's cinematic forms are also relevant and
welcome. This is an initial paper call. Please address any comments to
