CFP (SCMS 2020) Screening Ourselves: Mediation, Exemplars of Difference, and Cultural Transformation

Digital media proliferates, in part, because it allows individuals to adopt, inhabit, revise, and project their ways of being. Liking, saving, and sharing digital objects shapes our personal and social lives, and has transformed what it means to see and be seen, to garner and wield cultural influence. By self-reflexively mediating ourselves in cultural artifacts, what political claims are we adopting about how the world is, or should be? Which lives are screenable, or screened?

As a nation of settlers and immigrants, Americans often confront the possibility of claiming a mixed heritage, whether their ancestors have resided in the country for generations or they themselves are the first generation who have come from another country. Translating Rosemary Serra's study, Sense of Origins: Studies on the young Italian Americans of New York, I have confronted numerous interpretations of how the relationship between two countries (in this case Italy and America) constitutes an essential element of individual identity. Perhaps the most significant aspect is the extremely varied nature regarding how the individuals assign meaning to the term "Italian American."

Monday, September 30, 2019

What makes a man a man? How is masculinity shaped by spaces, times, languages, and cultures? How are men expected to behave in public and in private? In addition to addressing these questions, the panel would like to explore the concept of masculinity and how this is constructed by social contexts and human relationships. To this day, numerous men are profoundly impacted by adolescent experiences, peer pressure, and expectations based on “male gender roles.” This session invites contributions about literature, theater, film, and other symbolic productions in Italy as related to the complex topic of masculinity.

Looking for panelists for the Association of Asian Studies (AAS) annual conference in Boston, March 19-22, 2020. Below is the panel description:

This panel seeks to explore the intersections between religion and technology in Asian cultures and societies. Taking a broad view of religion, as lived and performative, the aim of this panel is to show how the theological, the technological and the anthropological intermingle to the point of indistinguishability in Asian cultures. The goal is to go beyond an instrumentalist approach wherein technology is enlisted into the service of religion and religious belief. I seek papers related (but not limited) to the following:

1) de/post colonial approach to religion, technology, secularism

27th-28th February 2020, University of Manchester.  

Keynote speaker: Professor Javed Majeed, King’s College London.

The effects of colonial power dynamics on knowledge creation in the long nineteenth century and beyond are well known and have become the foundation of a postcolonial reading of British scholarship in the context of empire. What has been less well examined are the practical effects of the colonial context on knowledge making.

The theme is ‘the Zone’, a nod to the 40th anniversary of Andrei Tarkovsky’s philosophical movie, Stalker.
