International Conference

The Left Conference – Photography and Film criticism

 

 

Since the late nineteenth century, the printed photograph in the media stood as a powerful tool for denouncing social injustice and claiming better life conditions – i.e. as seen in the work of Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, or Joshua Benoliel, among many others. In the early decades of the twentieth century the use of images had a significant boost with film, when directors such as Flaherty, Eisenstein, John Grierson, Vertov, Dvorjenko or Ivens, combining documental intentions with avant-garde experimental claims, made possible to discuss political and historical conditions.

MFS Special Issue - Inter-imperiality

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.

EnGendered Borders

In a 2016 music video, “Borders”, the ever-controversial M.I.A., herself a Tamil refugee, comments on the gendered aspects of Western anxieties in the on-going refugee ‘crisis’: images of endless masses of all-male refugees of colour resonate with right-wing myths of uncivilized brown invaders, stealing jobs, raping white women and undermining Euro-American gender progressivism. In fact, gender issues are a constitutive force not only in refugee status and immigration law, but also in media discourses and popular knowledge production about refugees.

Special Session for PAMLA 2017 - Honolulu, HI

Nov 10-12, 2017

Victorian Empire and Oceania

Many analyses of Victorian empire focus on India and Africa, yet the British empire also expanded to many parts of Oceania, both directly and indirectly. The papers in this session will examine cultural texts that explore relationships between Victorian empire and Oceania. This session especially welcomes essays that make connections between Victorian empire and Hawai'i.

The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

While islands of the Pacific figure prominently in the Western imagination, literary and cultural productions of Oceania are generally elided in Humanities scholarship of the continental U.S. Since its inception in 2008, PAMLA's standing session on "Oceanic Literatures and Cultures" has featured papers on indigenous, settler, and touristic artists of the Pacific as well as mass/popular cultural phenomena in and about Hawai'i and other "insular" locales. This session is also interested in papers that specifically focus on this year's theme of sight, visuality, and ways of seeing.
