In recent years the notion of American "commercial-independent" cinema has become a catchall category for just about every example of US filmmaking that is perceived to be distinct from mainstream Hollywood production. Where the related term "Indiewood" initially sought to describe specific textual, industrial and reception practices, its widespread circulation has led to an amorphous category whose meanings are destabilised by the often reactive collapse of "commercial" and "independent" logic.

Aftermaths: Revolution and Recovery
An Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference
at the University of Western Ontario, Canada
It has become apparent with the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and the tenth anniversary of 9/11, that major traumatic events continue to resonate in both the individual and social consciousness - perhaps more in the 21st century than ever before. Remembering, rethinking, reworking, and reimagining are just a few of the ways in which authors and artists, historians and critics, audiences and citizens have explored their own traumatic experiences, as well as the traumatic events that continue to impact larger communities.
