[UPDATE] Rendering the Visible

Thursday, August 26, 2010 - 9:38pm
Moving Image Studies Program, Department of Communication, Georgia State University

February 11-12, 2011

The doctoral program in Moving Image Studies at Georgia State University welcomes paper proposals for a meta-disciplinary conference on the state of "the digital turn."

Keynote speakers: Vivian Sobchack and Akira Lippit

One of the most pressing questions facing studies of the image today is how to theorize visuality as more and more of the image archive is given over to the digital. This conference proposes that the notion of "rendering" might provide a useful entrée for an exploration of theoretical continuities and discontinuities in our understanding of the technologically-reproduced image, from Benjamin's "Short History of Photography" to CGI.

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 - 6:03pm
Dr Gareth Schott (Ed.) & Dr Kirstine Moffat (Ed.), University of Waikato, NZ

This edited collection will examine the cultural resurgence of the vampire. It aims to provide inter-disciplinary accounts of the reception and cultural impact of contemporary representations of the vampire evident across a broad range of mediums, including literature (e.g. Evernight, The Vampire Academy), film (e.g. Twilight saga), television (e.g. The Vampire Diaries, True Blood), graphic novels (e.g. Chibi Vampire) and games (e.g. Vampire Rain). The appeal of vampire mythology and its associated folklore for modern audiences will be examined in an age characterized by the transformative possibilities of the internet with both its low barriers to artistic expression and the erosion of the boundaries between author and audience.
