CFP: Class and Contemporary UK Film and Television. Virtual Conference 7 July 2022

Contemporary film and TV in the UK appear to offer at least three interrelated problems for the lower socio-economic classes. There is imbalance, exploitation, and precarity in the industry; perennial problems around representation; and the inculcation of neoliberal ideology antithetical to social justice and equality. This free virtual conference, held by London Metropolitan University on Thursday 7th July 2022, is an opportunity to reflect upon and react to this scenario. Presenters will be welcome to develop their papers for submission to a special double edition of the Journal of Class and Culture.

Ernest Veyu: Poetics of Textual Transactions

updated: 
Monday, January 10, 2022 - 3:09pm
Ken Scholars
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

Ken Scholars Publishing invites book chapters to be included in a forthcoming scholarly volume on intertextuality in the poetry of Ernest Veyu. 
As a postcolonial African (Cameroonian) poet, the texts of Veyu exhibit multiple layers of connection with a multitude of texts. The textual dialogues between Veyu's texts and the broad range of other texts reflect not just "the anxiety of influence" (Harold Bloom) but more profound symbiotic connections with cultures, movements and styles.

We invite prospective contributions for the forthcoming Routledge Companion to Cultural Texts and the Nation, an exciting new addition to the growing, dynamic book series

 

Despite robust discourse on globalization and a perhaps momentary preoccupation with post-nationalism toward the end of the 20th century, nation and nationalism continue their tenacious hold on our imaginations—a hold that, given the state of global politics, surely deserves further and renewed explanation, unpacking, and critique.

Building Communities of Resistance: bell hooks’ Life, Work, and Impact

 

When we talk about that which will sustain and nurture our spiritual growth as a people, we must once again talk about the importance of community. For one of the most vital ways we sustain ourselves is by building communities of resistance, places where we know we are not alone.

Tuesday, May 31, 2022

There Can Be Only One.  This phrase was made popular 35 years ago with the release of Highlander, a fantasy action-adventure film directed by Russell Mulcahy and starring Christophe Lambert, Sean Connery, and Clancy Brown.  While it did not turn a profit during its theatrical release, it did become a cult film inspiring several sequels, three television series, original novels, comic books, audio books, video games, a web series, collectibles, musical scores, and a loyal fandom who have successfully organized a number of Highlander fan conventions.

CFP: Total Cinema: Film and Design

updated: 
Wednesday, January 5, 2022 - 11:05am
Disegno - Journal of Design Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 15, 2022

The next issue of Disegno will investigate, from the perspective of design culture, the contemporary role and significance of cinema, film, VR and moving image installations within the context of the institutional, technological, and media-related developments and lifeworld in the twenty-first century. Our basic aim is to shed more light on how critically oriented design culture studies conceive of design not as it is in the world but how it creates our lifeworlds (Lebenswelten) as seamless webs of discursive meanings and sensual experiences. On closer inspection, our particular interest lies in how this worlding (scil. es weltet) can be understood in the realms of cinema and film making.

*Final Extension* Call for Chapters: Investigating the Hardwood – Interdisciplinary Analyses of and Reflections on Professional Basketball

updated: 
Monday, January 3, 2022 - 7:30am
Till Neuhaus & Niklas Thomas
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 17, 2022

As a sport, basketball follows a certain set of rules and conventions which serve as a framework for players, coaches, and teams to play the sport. By their very nature, these rules are meritocratic which means that all participants are equal on the court, play by the same rules, and the only relevant (read as: game deciding) factors are effort, skill, and fortune. Such a perspective on basketball and sports leads certain fans and observers to statements such as “politics should be kept out of sports”.

DEADLINE EXTENDED:

We are seeking chapters for an edited collection on the popular Canadian sitcom, Schitt’s Creek, which had a meteoric rise in the U.S. after airing on Netflix. Schitt’s Creek has been a cultural force with its catchphrases, meme-able moments, and Emmy awards. There is much to unpack to understand the show's popularity and its impact, and, in this edited book collection, we will focus on three central themes: love, place, and identity.

 

Underlying questions of the project include but are not limited to:

As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report concludes, our planet’s landscapes are rapidly undergoing drastic short-term transformative changes due to anthropogenic factors. The wholesale thawing of Arctic permafrost stands to exacerbate planetary warming to runaway levels (p. 1270); droughts in arid areas are massively exacerbated by agricultural activity (p. 1984); greenhouse gas emissions disrupt natural weather systems so greatly that new microclimates emerge (p. 3514); ocean acidification threatens the viability of aquatic ecosystems (p. 1200); biodiversity is in rapid decline around the globe (p. 211); sea level rise will reclaim vast areas of low-lying land (p.
