Extended deadline (February 19): Edited volume: “Trans Identities in the French media” - Call for abstracts

updated: 
Monday, February 1, 2021 - 12:22pm
Dr Romain Chareyron
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 19, 2021

As a preamble to this call for abstracts, we want to specify that we are using the terms “transgender” and “trans identities” as umbrella terms for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth. Our use of “transgender” or “trans identities” thus encompasses a variety of experiences within and outside the gender binary, and a range of expressions, as trans individuals pursue many different options (medical changes, clothing, make-up, etc.) to bring their appearances into alignment with their gender identity, or may choose not to.

Narrative and Music

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 14, 2021

The cognitivist turn sparked a renewed interest in narrative analysis that extends beyond the study of literature. It has expanded across media such as film, graphic novels, video games, and music. This conference focuses on the study of narrative and narrativity in music. While some critics are convinced of music’s capacity for story-building, others consider the use of narrative theory derived from literary studies for the analysis of music unsuitable. This conference takes music’s narrative potential as its point of departure but recognizes that musical narrativity is scalar.

                                                                        A Handbook of Indian Indie Cinema

Each year, a large number of Indian Indie films are released that suffer from lack of viewership even when it comes to their target audience, not to mention critical assessments: films that are regional, experimental in nature or have fresh, timely interventions. Many among these deserve recognition, not only from general audiences and moviegoers but also from film scholars and the academia. With the onset of streaming sites and OTT platforms, some of these have made it to the limelight, although a systematic handbook that discusses and features many of these films is currently, absent.

FSAC Roundtable: Production as Critical Engagement

updated: 
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - 11:16am
Film Studies Association of Canada, at Congress
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 14, 2021

  

We are seeking two more participants for a roundtable on “Production as Critical Engagement” at FSAC’s 2021 conference. In this teaching-centred discussion, we want to hear about innovative pedagogical strategies that employ production (i.e., video essay, “master copy” art, collective annotation and film commentary, and other forms) to bridge film studies and film practice.

 

Such concrete methods of analysis are especially vital in this moment, when the shift to online teaching has dematerialized the traditional facets of film studies courses (screening, lecture/discussion).

 

Topics for discussion may include:
