[UPDATE - deadline extended] 'From Manland to Womanland': Gender in SFF

updated: 
Wednesday, June 10, 2015 - 8:23am
Brunel University London

From military patriarchies to feminist dystopias, from the monstrous feminine to cyborg uncertainties, from Ursula LeGuin's The Left Hand of Darkness to Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice, from wars between the sexes to post gender societies, SFF texts have continuously complicated, questioned and reinvented our approach to gender.

We invite proposals for papers considering any aspect of gender in SFF/horror texts or related comics, films, tv, games and music. Topics might include:

CFP: Global Identities in a Digital Age: German-language Culture in
the 21st Century

A joint graduate conference by the University of Toronto and the
University of Waterloo

Date: November 13th, 2015
Location: Hart House, University of Toronto
Deadline for abstracts: July 30th, 2015
Keynote speakers: tba

As inhabitants of a digital global space, we all form identities that may or may not differ greatly from our non-virtual selves. Informed and manipulated by mass media, the construction of our identities is, more than ever, shaped by global discourses. Ideas of nationalism, race, and gender are formed and re-formed in ways impossible to recreate in a non-digital environment.

Steen Christiansen and Jens Lohfert Jørgensen

We must account for the intensity of art, otherwise we can only explain part of our aesthetic experience. This argument is found in critics as diverse as Brian Massumi, Charles Altieri, and Sianne Ngai. Philosophers such as Alfred North Whitehead, Henri Bergson, and Steven Shaviro have argued that much of our perception is not cognitive but intuitive; we connect to the world through our senses.

Audiovisualtopia: A Conference on the Contemporary Screen Scene

updated: 
Tuesday, June 9, 2015 - 4:02pm
Brian Goss / Department of Communication, Saint Louis University, Madrid Campus

CALL for PAPERS: One hundred twenty years after the Lumiere Brothers' Arrival of a Train at Ciotat Station / L'arrivée d'un train en gare de La Ciotat and about 60 years after the insinuation of television...into living rooms across the industrialized world, contemporary societies are saturated with audiovisual culture. More recently, the rise of widely affordable techno-substrates for production (digital photography) and exhibition (youtube, proliferating film festivals) are clearly enabling toward the "democratization" of audiovisual sophistication, such that the committed college sophomore can readily produce polished short films. In other words, there is much to celebrate!
