Academic and scientific study of popular culture has only gained prominence in the 20th century, first with the Leavisites’ criticism of mass culture (as yet another form of the popular), then with the comprehensive work on the concept of ‘Critical Theory’ within the Frankfurt School. The latter half of the century saw, especially after the foundation of the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies, a rise in theories, definitions and approaches to popular culture so great that it occasioned Harold Bloom’s disparaging remark “that there is no future for literary studies as such in the United States. … At NYU I am surrounded by professors of hip-hop.

CFP for NeMLA 2017 Annual Convention in Baltimore, MD. http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention.html

Students in creative writing workshops often lack reading experience and knowledge, but demonstrate awareness and analysis of film and television. Graphic literature can be used to transition from the terminology and rhetorical understanding they possess to the writing and feedback skills the workshop demands. This roundtable seeks to present and discuss both recommended texts and strategies to engage students and encourage their creative writing. Theoretical and practical approaches to this method are welcome.

Legacies of French Film Criticism: Crossing Cultures and Perspectives

 

Despite a growing trend towards globalization and an increase in transnational film production, distribution and exhibition, not all audiences make sense of movies in the same manner. When films travel across borders, how are their meanings and reception impacted? Is the meaning of a film dependent on the cultural context in which it is read? This interdisciplinary panel will examine film criticism that falls under a broad “French-language” umbrella in order to map out significant trends as well as new directions in the study of French film criticism and its points of contact with other international cinemas.
