Dear author,

[UPDATE-deadline extended] CFP: Repetitons, Permutations, Becoming -- SFSU Cinema Studies Conference [Oct 22-24, 2015]

Thursday, May 28, 2015 - 2:31am
Cinema Studies Graduate Association / San Francisco State University

In our rapidly shifting culture, what defines the contemporary moment is fluid and impossible to pin down. This conference will look at the relations between newness, sameness, fluidity, and change in cinema and cinematic technologies from all eras. The cinematic apparatus itself is a technology of repetition and replication, and the effects of postmodern culture are marked by self-replication, simulation, and mediation. Postmodernism is about the now, and borrows from the surfaces of history while losing the history itself. Cinema and the cinematic is increasingly marked by intermediality of both culture and "text" and constant expansion of what these terms can mean.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Romanticism and the Arts

Ben P. Robertson / Keats-Shelley Association of America / SAMLA 87 (Durham, NC, USA; 13-15 Nov. 2015)

[UPDATE] The Feeling of Time in Contemporary American Literature [EXTENDED DEADLINE]

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 - 2:41pm
2015 PAMLA Conference - Nov. 6-8 in Portland, OR

Briefly: A reader's sense of time in literature rests upon a fully embodied and affective reading experience. Amongst an author's mechanisms for communicating a shared sense of time with one's readers is the use of highly affective, visceral, and/or proprioceptive linguistic cues. I'm looking for work that either explains or demonstrates how the affective communication of felt time works in contemporary American literature. Interdisciplinary work especially encouraged. Panel to take place at the 2015 annual PAMLA conference in lovely Portland, OR, Nov. 6-8, under the title "Ethics and Affect III: Temporalities." Submit 300-word paper proposal to pamla.org/2015 by June 10 (this is an extended deadline).
