SCRUTINISING BEAUTY

 

Beauty is the only thing that time cannot harm. Philosophies fall away like sand, creeds follow one another, but what is beautiful is a joy for all seasons, a possession for all eternity.

-          Oscar Wilde

 

Beauty is desired in order to be befouled. Not for its own sake, but for the joy brought by the certainty of profaning it.

-          Georges Bataille

REMINDER: Postcolonial Interventions, Vol. II, Issue 2 - OPEN ISSUE (JUNE 2017)

updated: 
Thursday, March 16, 2017 - 12:03pm
Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 7, 2017

A.K. Ramanujan in a poem entitled “Small-scale Reflections on a Great House” had mused, “Sometimes I think that nothing/that ever comes into this house/goes out. Things come in every day/to lose themselves among other things/lost long ago among/other things lost long ago”. The description may seem oddly apt for the field of postcolonial studies which continues to search for new shores even as some of the concerns of the past begin to fade with the inevitable processes of history. Even as the field remains committed to a quest for emancipation from violence and discrimination and deprivation, caused by the forces of race, class, gender, sexuality and a number of other factors, the modalities continue to change and the boundaries begin to blur.

High Art/Low Art: Boundaries of Genre, Character, and Viewer in Popular and Independent Film, SAMLA 89 [proposal due June 1, 2017]

updated: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:14pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association Film Studies Group
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

Across independent, international, and Hollywood film communities, notions of boundary continue to articulate and challenge how we engage with film. As viewers, critics, and theorists, how might we problematize boundaries of genre, character, and viewer in popular and/or independent film? And when boundaries separating high from low art begin to dissolve, how do we trace dissolutions and reformulations of boundary between popular and independent film? In keeping with the theme of high art/low art: border and boundaries in popular culture, this panel seeks papers addressing liminality in writing, directing, visual style, and performance in popular and independent film.
