Monday, August 1, 2022

“That’s a Take”: The International Television Commercial as Short Film is a two-day, virtual conference that engages interdisciplinary scholarship from any critical/methodological perspective examining the international television commercial production as a short film narrative. As examined in Consuming Images: Film Art and the American Television Commercial (Edinburgh University Press, 2020) which established the complex vitality of the television commercial both as a short film and as an art form, the television commercial has an aesthetic and historical dynamic linking it directly to cinematic and media cultures.

Dante Decolonizer: Poet of Justice

Epistemic Plurality and the Ethical Imagination

 

…ché, per quanti si dice più li ‘nostro’… (Purgatorio, 15.55)

 This NeMLA sponsored seminar is designed to engage Dante’s interrogation of justice as an epistemically rooted, ethical imperative. This year’s speaker’s panel and subsequent roundtable seek to explore Dante’s attention to the centrality of epistemic plurality in the ethical imagination with respect to justice, as exemplified in key passages like: Inferno 3–5, 8, 26, 32–33; Purgatorio 10–11, 13, 15–18, 30–31; and Paradiso 3, 10–12, 17–21. 

NeMLA CFP: Manifesting Joy Through Posthumanist Praxis

updated: 
Tuesday, June 7, 2022 - 10:02pm
Mimi Rowntree and Sarah Shelton
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

 

In her most recent book, Posthuman Feminism, Rosi Braidotti calls on posthumanist educators to develop “an affirmative ethics that acknowledges the shared desire of all entities to persevere in their collaborative interdependence and to increase it for the common good” (118). She advocates for pedagogical praxis as a methodological innovation (and challenge) that draws on new materialism as a foundational theory and carnal empiricism as a method.

We hope to consider the following questions with a collaborative group of participants:

*What are concrete, shareable ways to put posthumanist/feminist/new materialist theory into practice (praxis) in the everyday higher ed classroom?

Conference: 28-29 July 2022 (online - via Zoom)

CFP: 

​In our postmodern world there are a lot of questions that should be re-considered and re-defined. What does it mean to fight against colonialism and racism in the world of migration crisis and xenophobic attitudes towards minorities? What does it mean to be a postcommunist country in the face of the common nostalgia for order and rules? How is it possible to have a national identity being aware of the relative character of every national feature?

Re-hierachizing Adaptation

Tuesday, June 7, 2022 - 4:44pm
NeMLA2023
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Adaptation studies has contended with the question of hierarchies since it first emerged. Adaptation as a process similarly so: the problem of the source and the ‘original’ has established certain values and positions of texts. This has been challenged most notably through the debate in the field around fidelity, wherein the question of being ‘true’ to the source has been variously deemed fallacious, unhelpful, or both. Despite some recent proponents for it, what emerges from this is the challenging of the hierarchies that the fidelity debate espouses. Broadly, this has been main way in which these hierarchies have been challenged in adaptations, primarily due to the seemingly inescapable status fidelity has in the field.

Who Dalit? Why Dalit? How Dalit?: Reading Mediums of the Caste Phenomenon

updated: 
Tuesday, June 7, 2022 - 4:44pm
North East Modern Language Association 2023
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

The seminar is interested in looking at papers that deal with the life of Dalits from a phenomenological perspective. The Dalit identity is not frigid. The politics of othering, the notion of subjectivity, the internationalization of caste, caste and cinema, music, art, and other mediums are areas that researchers can explore. Papers that are rooted in the local understanding of caste as a Global/ Indian problem are welcome. Responses that deal with ways to adapt the young generation to the thought of Ambedkar and propose ethical ways to deal with the question of caste are expected. Scholars from literature, political science, media studies, cultural studies, and aesthetics are welcome to make submissions.

Fictional persons and characters

International Online Workshop
October 12, 2022

It is tempting to think of fictional characters as if they were fictional persons. The inhabitants of a fictional world, where they live and engage in meaningful interactions as we do in the real world. However, this conception is problematic. First, because the concept of “person” is far from being clear. Are persons to be defined in physical or mental terms? And even if we restrict ourselves to a Lockean framework where persons are defined in mental terms, regardless of their physical features, could other entities besides human beings achieve full personhood?

Sunday, June 5, 2022

Third Cinema films successfully manages to depict the socio-political issues of the world. These issues include the effects of colonization, oppression, and conflict between classes or nations. These films are especially pivotal for the political issues of the Third World. In this sense, films play a fundamental role in the struggle for justice for marginalized communities. Third Cinema is a tool through which debate, activism, and discussion are evoked in society. These films expose the realities of the world and have gained recognition in terms of art, politics, and humanity. Indeed, the Third Cinema is revolutionary for society in every convincible way.

          It is widely known that ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia are dangerous and spread all over the world. We want to examine these terms as much as possible, from many perspectives and variable aspects: in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.​

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

On December 1, 1952, World War II veteran Christine Jorgensen became the first American to undergo sex reassignment surgery. Her long-standing legacy has helped reignite a fundamental debate on gender, sex, and recognition. Indeed, as historian Joanne Meyerowitz notes in How Sex Changed: A History of Transsexuality in the United States (2009), the redefinition of gender identity, “as opposed to biological sex,” was the ultimate product of a long process that “emerged from the medical discourse of the mid-1950s and as a result of the post-Jorgensen phenomenon.” Since then, the non-binary understanding of gender has featured prominently in an ever-expanding debate on American society as it struggled to achieve inclusiveness, freedom, and equality.
