CFP ReFocus: The Films of Xavier Dolan

Ever since his first feature film J’ai tué ma mère premiered at Cannes in 2009, where it received an eight-minute standing ovation and three awards, every film from the prolific and precocious 28 year-old Québécois director Xavier Dolan has generated significant buzz. A recipient of numerous international awards, Dolan has recently taken his career into genre filmmaking (with Tom à la ferme, which premiered at Venice and garnered the prestigious FRIPESCI prize) and to an international level, with his first English-language feature The Death and Life of John F. Donovan now in post-production.

CFP: The Handbook to Horror Literature: Select chapters needed

Wednesday, April 5, 2017 - 5:22pm
Kevin Corstorphine and Laura Kremmel
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 30, 2017

Most handbooks on the subject of horror focus specifically on film, whereas books on the literary manifestations of horror tend to be bound to the idea of the “Gothic.” The current field of Gothic studies grows out of the study of Romanticism, and refers specifically to a late eighteenth-century genre, but has also come to denote a critical approach to literature, film, and culture, drawing on psychoanalysis, post structural criticism, feminist and queer theory. These perspectives are all to be included here, but the book responds to a growing sense that “horror” is itself a worthwhile focus of analysis.

Known predominantly for his music, Cohen’s artistic contributions extend into the genres of poetry, fiction, and visual art. This year’s SAMLA conference theme, “High Art/ Low Art: Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture,” presents a timely and appropriate venue for an examination and celebration of the artist’s life and work.
