The Dread of Difference(s): Horror, Gender, and Cinematic Defiance (NeMLA 2021 Seminar)

Thursday, June 25, 2020 - 1:27pm
Northeast Modern Languages Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Since Carol J. Clover’s seminal work Men, Women, and Chainsaws (1992), feminist readings of horror movies have gained an enthusiastic theoretical momentum. In employing various frameworks and lenses and by complicating our spectatorial position, this rich corpus of literature has perhaps contributed to a resignification of the genre and its tropes. However, amid the emergence of luminous movies that defy and challenge horror’s misogynistic and racialized foundations, several questions arise: Is contemporary horror cinema really abjuring its heteronormative, original structure? Does mainstream horror still convey trite reactionary messages with renewed vigor?

(ONLINE) MEMORY, AFFECTS AND EMOTIONS International Interdisciplinary Conference

Saturday, July 25, 2020

ABOUT CONFERENCE: Affects, emotions and perceptions have always been at the center of philosophical discussion. Yet the so called “Affective turn” in social studies and humanities is relatively a new phenomenon inspired by Deleuze and Guattari´s influential works among others. Affective turn challenges the still dominant representational approach in semiotics, discourse analysis and text analyses of all kind. Its goal is to overcome human exceptionalism together with the domination of the word-based language over the other forms of expression in the process of creating meaning and knowledge altogether.
