Online Workshop "The Decaying Female Body in Horror Cinema"

updated: 
Wednesday, January 5, 2022 - 11:17am
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 1, 2022

The horror genre in film follows from the literary tradition established by Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley, eliciting physiological and psychological reactions through suspense, gore, the macabre and the supernatural. Horror films transfix and terrify audiences in equal measure, unfailingly achieving suspension of disbelief because fear is a universal emotion. The position occupied by female characters in horror cinema is often ambivalent, ranging from victims of violence to perpetrators of dread. Relying in part on Julia Kristeva's theory of abjection, we will investigate representations of decaying female bodies in cinema. Kristeva defines horror as a breakdown in meaning caused by the loss of boundaries between self and other.

CFP: Total Cinema: Film and Design

updated: 
Wednesday, January 5, 2022 - 11:05am
Disegno - Journal of Design Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 15, 2022

The next issue of Disegno will investigate, from the perspective of design culture, the contemporary role and significance of cinema, film, VR and moving image installations within the context of the institutional, technological, and media-related developments and lifeworld in the twenty-first century. Our basic aim is to shed more light on how critically oriented design culture studies conceive of design not as it is in the world but how it creates our lifeworlds (Lebenswelten) as seamless webs of discursive meanings and sensual experiences. On closer inspection, our particular interest lies in how this worlding (scil. es weltet) can be understood in the realms of cinema and film making.

Crones, Crime, and the Gothic

In-person Conference

Falmouth University UK, 10-11 June 2022

 

Older women have traditionally been portrayed negatively in folklore, fairy tales, literature and film, for example. Images of witches, evil stepmothers, shrivelled, bitter 'spinsters', and vindictive, bullying women abusing positions of power are rife in Western culture. Yet,

perhaps things are changing. A new emphasis on the need to discuss and understand the

menopause seems to be at the heart of this. This conference examines historical

deadline for submissions:

DEADLINE EXTENDED:

We are seeking chapters for an edited collection on the popular Canadian sitcom, Schitt’s Creek, which had a meteoric rise in the U.S. after airing on Netflix. Schitt’s Creek has been a cultural force with its catchphrases, meme-able moments, and Emmy awards. There is much to unpack to understand the show's popularity and its impact, and, in this edited book collection, we will focus on three central themes: love, place, and identity.

 

Underlying questions of the project include but are not limited to:

The heterogenous character of protean form of travel writing—letters, journals, logbooks, diaries, memoir, journalistic pieces, guidebooks, confessional narratives, accounts of seafaring voyages, literary picaresque narratives, scientific explorations, artists’ escapades, ventures of urban flâneurs, self-exiled wanderers, and fiction—resists easy demarcation. Its heterogeneity lies in the revisionary stance brought about in each narrative through the distinguishing figure of the traveller, mode of narration, means of mapping, or redefining of the landscape.

deadline for submissions:

When we think of the western literary canon, we tend to think of the famous authors and works that have shaped our literary and scholarly culture into what it is today: Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Dickens, Twain, Whitman, and the list goes on and on. But In our age of cultural and technological advancement, we believe that the bodies of works we consider worthy of study should also reflect the current world around us. Thus, the goal of this issue of The Humanities Review is to shine a spotlight on those authors, works, and platforms which have not yet found a home in the literary/academic canon, but still merit the kind of close literary analysis afforded to the canon.

The grotesque and bizarre have accompanied many lyrics and melodies throughout the decades. Whether it is used to fit the Gothic narrative of bands such as Bauhaus and The Cure, or to serve as a device to create buzz surrounding the artist/band, such as the monstrous element of Lady Gaga’s early persona, the shock factor of audiovisual aesthetics has played a pivotal role in the development of contemporary soundscapes.

Tuesday, March 15, 2022

In the introduction to the 2007 anthology Looking Past the Screen, Eric Smoodin points to a methodological lacuna within the conventional form of film historiography. This form – which “has at least since the mid-1950s been dominated by the study of the film itself, often organized around genre, nation, or authorship” – is not without its great benefits for historical knowledge; yet by emphasizing cinematic text over context, it has also missed out on important historical insight that may be garnered from closer scrutiny of nonfilmic archival holdings.
