Intersections of Sustainability and Human Rights

Sunday, June 1, 2014 - 3:50pm
South Atlantic Modern Languages Association (SAMLA) 2014

Drawing from Raymond Williams's assertion that "the idea of nature contains, though often unnoticed, an extraordinary amount of human history," we seek to explore how problems of human rights are manifest within environmental problems and proposed solutions. What do problems that arise at the intersection of sustainability and human rights elucidate about the inclusionary politics (including, but not limited to race, class, and gender) of these respective social movements? We welcome papers that consider the overlaps between these two movements and the politics involved in each. Possible topics of investigation include vulnerability studies, fair trade and labor movements, and resource wars.

2014 Film & History Conference / 29/10/14 to 02/11/14

DEADLINE for abstracts: June 1, 2014

From the late 1920s to the mid-1960s, the Western genre underwent a series of surprising transformations, experiencing a decline, a rebirth, and finally, its Golden Age. From highly successful traditional "oaters" and musical "horse operas," Westerns developed into complex, "revisionist" forms during the Cold War that included the noir Western, the cult Western, and the Spaghetti Western. At the same time, the Western also dominated the small screen, its popularity peaking in 1959 when 26 shows were aired on television.
