Are these media new ?

Under the editorship of Eric Alloi and Isabelle Raynauld

[la version française suit]

The 6th issue of Post-Scriptum.org is concerned with the concepts and
expressions that constitute the foundation of new media as a field of study.
If the current lexical profusion (new media, multimedia, digital media,
interactive media, etc.) attests to the diversity of possible approaches
when faced with combinations of information technology and arts such as
literature, cinema and other hybrid forms, what critical point of view are
we able to bring to an artistic practice that is still embryonic?

PANEL PROPOSAL: SCMS conference, Vancouver BC March 2006
Tony Jackson, Associate Prof of English, Grad Coordinator
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.
