deadline for submissions:

Deadline for Submission: November 27, 2020

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous scholars have been unable to physically access archival records, locked away for an indefinite period of time. In the present, various media industries—studios, streaming services, talent agencies, and more —have continued to announce deals, make public statements, and present a digital front that veils the story underneath. With continued conglomeration and corporate security practices winnowing access to materials, even smaller stakes questions—even the amount of eyes on any particular work on digital platforms—are becoming increasingly impossible to uncover without records.

Periodicals and Silent Cinema (Special Edition of the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies)

Submissions are solicited for a special edition of the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies on the relationship between periodicals and silent cinema. Work is encouraged which treats the topic in its global, as well as Anglophone, context. 

The rise of silent cinema in the early twentieth century changed the business of writing and publishing forever. Editors, journalists, essayists and authors found themselves catering for readers whose cultural expectations had been transformed by their interactions with cinema. Debates raged over which periodical form would first be rendered obsolete: the daily newspaper? The illustrated magazine? The serialised novel? The weekly comic? The compendium of short fiction?

Since 2017, the #metoo movement has been successful for the conviction of Harvey Weinstein, who was at the center of the landmark trial. The same cannot be said in the case of India, which is still coming to terms with the issue of gender-based violence. Our panel will examine the representations of women who have been forgotten or have been rendered invisible in the national and international media discourse. Our panel will examine such representations through the study of South Asian filmic and theatre representations of Dalit (lower-caste), Northeast Indian, and women who were foundational figures in the defining the newly minted nation—India and Pakistan.

The Ethics of Narrative: Appropriation and Reinvention in Stories of Injustice (NeMLA 2021)

updated: 
Thursday, June 25, 2020 - 1:31pm
NeMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

This CFP is for a seminar session at the 2021 NeMLA Convention.

Literature and film that bear witness to injustice can create space for voices that have been silenced. They can lead to the recognition of people subjected to human rights violations and produce shared national and transnational identities. They can draw readers’ attention back onto the politics and power of reading audiences.
