(In)Visible Adaptation: Diversity and Inclusion

Association of Adaptation Studies Conference

23-24 June 2022, School of Arts and Humanities, University of Lisbon, Portugal

As concerns related to diversity and inclusion storm our world, rightfully emerging in
contexts as diverse as policy making and media content production, for the 2022
edition of the Association for Adaptation Studies Conference we intend to question
how these trends present new challenges for Adaptation Studies, both in practical and
theoretical terms.

The world as we know it is undergoing dynamic transformation. Many gains have been made in recent decades towards loosening the grip of some of the belief systems that have enabled many systemic inequalities in the modern world. The ideological underpinnings of white supremacy, heteropatriarchy and coloniality, for example, have been rigorously challenged and are being steadily eroded, leading to changes in legal frameworks, social practices and the norms of acceptable everyday behaviour. The highly visible and vocal Black Lives Matter movement, which regained international momentum following the murder of George Floyd, has become a widely recognized recent manifestation of this refusal to abide the injustices and indignities of the past.

Psychoanalysis and Fashion

updated: 
Monday, August 9, 2021 - 1:43pm
Julia Bruehne, Matthew Lovett / NeMLA's 53rd Annual Convention, March 10-13, 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

To find a point of intersection between the realms of fashion and psychoanalysis, we should first try to define what exactly is fashion. As an expression of creativity, fashion could serve as a medium to canalize the inner life of the individuum, which is a concept that evokes the notion of the subconscious. Some artists and designers have already undergone an exploration of this field of work, Dalí and Schiaparelli being the most relevant case among them. Despite its clear connection with the principles of the surrealist movement, which generates its creativity precisely from the shadows of the human psyche, fashion articulates its imagery in highly symbolized language.

LGBTQIA+ Fantastika Graphics: A Digital Symposium [UPDATE]

deadline for submissions:

Digital Symposium: 20 November 2021

 

“Fantastika” – a term appropriated from a range of Slavonic languages by John Clute – embraces the genres of Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror, but can also include Alternate History, Gothic, Steampunk, Young Adult Dystopic Fiction, or any other radically imaginative narrative space. Our goal is to bring together academics, independent researchers, creators, and audiences who share an interest in this diverse range of fields with the aim of opening up new dialogues, productive controversies, and critical collaborations.

Searching for Truth in Documentary Storytelling Online Workshop

updated: 
Monday, August 9, 2021 - 1:39pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

The documentary film is a non-fictional motion picture that shapes and interprets factual material; the intent is to capture "reality" with a view to inform, educate, entertain, or maintain a historical record. Documentaries have contributed to the development of realism in movies; the style has been influential from the earliest days of filmmaking. Critic and theoretician Bill Nichols has characterised it as "a practice, a cinematic tradition, and a mode of audience reception that remains without clear boundaries".

"Fashion, Body and Culture" International Conference

updated: 
Monday, August 9, 2021 - 1:39pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 1, 2021

Applying diverse methods from across subject disciplines the conference will explore fashion and style in wide-ranging contexts. It will examine connections between fashion, body and culture and will focus on dress, cosmetics, coiffure and body alterations (piercing, tattooing, circumcision, aesthetic surgery, etc). 

How does our dress or hair style create our identity and status? How is it concerned with sexual and body politics? Is the desire to be "in fashion" universal or unique to Western culture? These and other questions we set out to discuss at the conference.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

“Media and Creativity” International Conference

updated: 
Monday, August 9, 2021 - 1:39pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Nowadays we live and breathe media, minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour. News, television, social media, celebrity culture, music, and more. As the media and communication sector becomes ever more diverse and dynamic, and we are going to consume it, we also need to understand it.

Today, the new bio-technical forms of life produced by mainstream digital media and by a whole range of artistic and non-artistic practices confront us with unprecedented theoretical questions, which can be dealt with by combining profound and perplexing perspectives. We need appropriate theoretical frameworks in order to understand the phenomena.

Engaging the Audience: From Antiquity to the Renaissance

 

In The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life (1959), Erving Goffman likens social interaction to theatre, describing “performance” as “all the activity of an individual which occurs during a period marked by his continuous presence before a particular set of observers and which has some influence on the observers.” The individual coming into contact with other people is like an actor on stage, who will employ available theatrical devices in order to manage the impression made on the audience.
