"Materialism and Cinema"
The popularity of Deleuze in cinema studies is coincident with a
philosophical return in the field to phenomenology, especially as inspired
by Heidegger. Papers are sought which instead examine the application of
materialist philosophy to the screen. What might a materialist theory of
film look like and signify in the age of transnational capitalism? How
would it differ from the cognitivist approaches of Bordwell and of Anderson,
the analytic approaches of Allen, Smith, and Wartenberg, and the
aestheticist approaches of Carroll and of Plantinga? How might it negotiate
the Althusserian approaches of the 1960s-70s?
