This call for papers is a proposed panel to be held at
(dis)junctions, University of California, Riverside's
14th Annual Humanities Conference, to be held April

numerous. Proposed papers should address the reasons
and/or aesthetic, cultural, and psychological effects
of such recontextualizations. Topics could come from
many disciplines, including literature, theory, visual
arts, cultural studies, film studies, or journalism.

Possible topics:


Mass media/advertising

Film or television studies

Images of war
        Ethical or aesthetic issues

Visual arts (especially contemporary)
