2007 has been heralded as one of the best in film history. Numerous exceptional films were released, and some actors and directors reached career pinnacles with their 2007 work (the Coen Brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, Daniel Day-Lewis, George Clooney). I am soliciting 250-word abstracts on any topic related to films from that year, whether as single-film studies, comparative analyses, or studies in cinematic trends. Your presentation can involve films from other years, as long as the 2007 film plays a central role in the argument. I am especially interested in essays on any of the following films:

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 7, 2021

I'm seeking abstracts of 250 words due March 7, 2021 for an edited collection under contract with an academic publisher entitled "Women Writing Trauma in Literature."  The book considers literary representations of trauma by women writers. Rather than focusing on one time period or nationality, this collection considers a global range of women’s experiences with or depictions of traumatic encounters in literature. In particular, this book examines the relationship between trauma, identity, and literary form. Send abstracts to laura.leigh.alexander@gmail.com. Notification of accepted essays by April 1, 2021. Completed chapters (4000-6000 words) due by July 2021.

"Crossroads: The Risks of Making Choices"

Virtural Conference: April 16th-17th

 

"Each decision we make closes off a series of possible alternatives. What happens if we try to make several contradictory decisions at once and keep them separate, in open series? A political life, an academic life, an emotional life, family life, sexual, religious, all of which may have diffuse (not to say clandestine) relationships between them" Ricardo Piglia, The Way Out (258)

"Tantra" has the distinction of being one of the few conceptions that simultaneously refers to intensely esoteric and antinomian systems of traditional mystical, magical, and occult practice deeply rooted in and contextualized in cultural specificity while also being used to describe popularized receptions that variously narrow its focus, broaden its scope, secularize it, moralize it, sanitize it, demonize it, and diabolize it.  Sometimes popular conceptions also associate its practice with variant interpretations of concepts such as the "Left-Hand Path" that themselves have accrued a considerable range of both emic and etic significances frequently at odds with one another.  Unlike abstractions such as the "Left-Hand Path," Tantra has retained a common t

“‘Getting lost’ still takes us somewhere; and being lost is a way of inhabiting space by registering what is not familiar: being lost can in its turn become a familiar feeling [...] The familiar is an effect of inhabitance; we are not simply in the familiar, but rather the familiar is shaped by actions that reach out toward objects that are already within reach.”

In recent years, numerous instances of anti-Black violence have brought to light a long, complex history of institutional racism and violence in the United States. At the same time, these events have inspired collective action and consciousness across the globe, prompting communities to recognize their own histories of racism, racial inequality, and discrimination as well as their manifestations in contemporary society. In the Latin American context, the effects of conquest and colonization have played an especially significant role in the shaping of social and cultural histories, and identity representations.
