                                                                        A Handbook of Indian Indie Cinema

Each year, a large number of Indian Indie films are released that suffer from lack of viewership even when it comes to their target audience, not to mention critical assessments: films that are regional, experimental in nature or have fresh, timely interventions. Many among these deserve recognition, not only from general audiences and moviegoers but also from film scholars and the academia. With the onset of streaming sites and OTT platforms, some of these have made it to the limelight, although a systematic handbook that discusses and features many of these films is currently, absent.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 1, 2021

I am currently editing Graphic Novels and Comics as World Literature for Bloomsbury and unfortunately had an article on African comics drop out and am looking for a fairly quick replacement.  Feel free to send me an email with a short abstract by January 25.  The article due date is negotiable but would need to come before April 1.  The original description for the collection, which already includes articles on Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Oceania and on movement between borders, is below. The article would need to focus on comics from and/or about Africa but the approach is certainly open. I am happy to answer any questions at jhodapp@northwestern.edu.

Thursday, April 15, 2021

You are invited to submit a paper to the "Jewish Literature and Culture" Session at the Annual Conference of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) to be held 11-14 November 2021 in Las Vegas.  Jewish Literature and Culture: The Call of Memory Contemporary Jewish writers and thinkers have frequently reacted to the emergence of the Holocaust as a cultural and human rights paradigm by refracting memory toward forgotten genocides, repressed histories, and overlooked parallels with colonial and imperialist projects. The formation of comparative, multidirectional, and “concentrationary” memory studies owes much to writers like Edgar Hildenrath, Imre Kertész, Ruth Klüger, Jorge Semprún, or Patrick Modiano.

The months of May and June, 2020, saw unprecedented global protests against anti-Black racism and calls for a more equitable and just society that recognizes the humanity and lives of people of African descent. While these protests initially originated across the United States, protesters around the world quickly galvanized in support of these issues organizing events in a growing number of countries, including Canada, Mexico, Haiti, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, South Africa, Australia and Japan. This has been an important moment for Black scholars, activists, and cultural producers everywhere—as well as their friends and allies—to reflect not only on the crisis that has marked Black lives, but also on our future possibilities.
