This symposium and edited volume seeks to draw together research into cinematic exhibition in Italy throughout the twentieth and twenty-first century. Current research into Italian cinema is continuously expanding its purview to consider the great range of genres, forms and contexts that have been engaged by filmmakers working in the country. Similarly, recent studies have shone vital light on the complex make up of Italy’s film audiences, and on the practices of film producers and distributors in the country. This project will continue this critical expansion by investigating the myriad ways in which film media (both Italian and foreign) has been exhibited and consumed in Italy.
Update: the deadline for this CFP has been changed to October 15, 2021.

Whether he parodied, plagiarized, appropriated, translated, borrowed, or critiqued, Oscar Wilde’s work contains a web of references that vigorously engages with the voices of others. The way Wilde spoke with and through his sources may reveal not only his own influences and allegiances, but also aspects of larger conversations within late Victorian culture involving artistic production, Decadence, theater, journalism, scholarship, poverty, gender issues, sexuality, prison reform, and more.
Feminism does not exist in singularity, and its plurality centers disenfranchised narratives and perspectives. Due to the interwoven structural oppressions based on the social construct of identities, intersectionality’s formation provides a foundation and praxis to theorize and contribute to the dismantling of systemic oppressions. The whitening of intersectionality participates in commodification (Bilge 2015), in stark opposition to its original intentionality (Crenshaw 1991), and calls into question the plurality of feminism as if a hegemonic conceptualization of ‘feminism’ would be preferred, enhanced, or (en)forced.
This roundtable will convene literary and media scholars with poets themselves to explore the present and future of poetic cultures online, both in the U.S. and around the world. Our largest question can be simply put: to what extent have platforms for digital “prosumption” and online networking transformed the social life of contemporary poetry? We understand this inquiry to entail a diverse array of other, finer pointed questions: How does social media now condition the politics of contemporary poetry, where “politics” signifies both the institutional lifeforms of poetry’s production and circulation, and the ostensible public efficacy of poems themselves?
Although academia’s interest in disability studies emerged in the late 1980s, an ever-growing body of research has emerged since then, mainly from Anglo-Saxon and Nordic countries.

Girlhood Studies, as an academic discipline, is still growing. Since some educational institutions do include girls’ studies as part of a special curriculum, an academic program, a certificate course, a minor, or as part of Women’s Studies or Gender Studies, Girlhood Studies does have a presence in academia although at this stage rarely in an autonomous department. This interest in the pedagogies and practices of teaching Girlhood Studies is an important aspect of its growth as a field of study at university level, at school, and outside of formal academic settings.

It’s a statistic we hear often: America incarcerates more people per capita than any other nation. Yet, most Americans can go about their daily lives without thinking about their physical proximity to prisons or the people locked within. With few exceptions, prisons are built in rural, remote areas, set back from main highways and not visible from shopping centers, restaurants, and housing developments. Likewise, America’s political landscape works hard to obfuscate the realities of life locked up, reducing discourses of mass incarceration to shocking statistics and incomprehensible numbers.

Whether from health crisis, family isolation, or governmental-social prejudice, care has always been an invaluable resource in queer communities, whether physical, psychological, or spiritual. This care manifests not only in physical forms, such as providing food and medicine, shelter for queer homeless populations, and access to health care, but also in the ability to connect with new modes of family and to fight in the broader struggle for queer rights and liberation. However, this care can become disrupted due to biases present within the mainstream queer community, such against queer people of color, queer women and gender non-conforming people, and queer people with disabilities.
This call is for our book recommendation section.for the academic blog (ISSN 2660-8839, https://popmec.hypotheses.org) of the PopMeC Association for US Popular Culture Studies.
We aim at recommending books that we find relevant in the realm of the representation of the US, as well as in the related cultural studies. We’d like to share books that we found inspiring, useful, and engaging, delving into culturally relevant topics, popular culture products, public reception, cultural politics, minority/discriminated groups’ representation, collective imaginaries fueled by cinema, music, comics, TV series, public performances, and whatnot.
