A return to the feminisms of the 1970s is one of the most salient dimensions of feminist studies to emerge over the last decade. Scholarly books, special issues of academic journals, conferences, exhibitions, and research forums have revisited this decade in which feminism became a discernible liberation movement rewriting political and cultural landscapes around the globe. Vibrant with differentiation, moving across multiple practices and disciplines, this return can be characterized in at least two ways. First of all, it creates and traces subtle lines of inquiry between the purported triumphs and failures of 1970s feminisms.
This is a last minute call for contributors to the Encyclopedia of Racism in American Cinema.
This volume is set to go into press this year, but due to a number of contributors dropping out at the last minute, I really need to have some entries covered.
The deadline for these is 2 June--FIRM AND NO EXCEPTIONS or EXTENSIONS.
As there is no time for multiple editing rounds, the entries will have to be submitted in exceptional form.
If you have the time and know you can really turn out a 450-750 word entry in under 2.5 weeks, please contact me. After that, I'll send you a list of last-minute entries to be filled and some detailed instructions for completing your entry.
COLLABORATIVE WRITING IN PRACTICE
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.
The digital realm has reconfigured the ways in which production and consumption of games happen. Consider some prominent examples:
In May 2011, self-taught game developer Andrew Spinks released his own world-building game after only five months of production. The game, Terraria, now available on all major computing and gaming platforms, has sold over 20.5 million units, but is still only available through Spinks’s own publishing firm, Re-Logic.
