Investigating South Korean Neo-Noir

Monday, July 3, 2017 - 9:25am
SCMS, Toronto--March 14-18, 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 10, 2017

For nearly two decades, from Tell Me Something (1999) and Nowhere to Hide (1999) to The Wailing (2016)  the neo-noir film has been a vibrant part of South Korean cinema. A few films, such as Memories of Murder (2003) and Park Chan-wook’s “Revenge Trilogy,” have enjoyed popular and critical success. Yet as Hyangjin Lee has noted, “Western scholarship on Asian cinema tends to pay little serious attention to gangster or crime thrillers, despite the significance of the genre in the region” (118).

'The World is Changed': Fantasy Literature in the Anthropocene

Friday, June 30, 2017 - 9:57am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

In light of the current discourse surrounding the Anthropocene, and the growth of its popularity in the ecological conversation, this seminar seeks to unpack the various understandings and responses to the human-dominated geological age, specifically through the lens of the fantasy genre. The Anthropocene refers to “The Age of Man” and includes all aspects of the evolution of man, including the exploitation of resources as well as technological progress. Through its very identity, the Anthropocene question exists among the ranks of the current political and cultural crisis of the 21st century.
