deadline for submissions:

The months of May and June, 2020, saw unprecedented global protests against anti-Black racism and calls for a more equitable and just society that recognizes the humanity and lives of people of African descent. While these protests initially originated across the United States, protesters around the world quickly galvanized in support of these issues organizing events in a growing number of countries, including Canada, Mexico, Haiti, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, South Africa, Australia and Japan. This has been an important moment for Black scholars, activists, and cultural producers everywhere—as well as their friends and allies—to reflect not only on the crisis that has marked Black lives, but also on our future possibilities.

We are seeking two more participants for a roundtable on “Production as Critical Engagement” at FSAC’s 2021 conference. In this teaching-centred discussion, we want to hear about innovative pedagogical strategies that employ production (i.e., video essay, “master copy” art, collective annotation and film commentary, and other forms) to bridge film studies and film practice.

 

Such concrete methods of analysis are especially vital in this moment, when the shift to online teaching has dematerialized the traditional facets of film studies courses (screening, lecture/discussion).

 

Topics for discussion may include:

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 5, 2021

Within the scholarly realm, patriotism has often been researched within social sciences, humanities, but there is little published research through the lens of veteran studies. Patriotism in America has evoked passionate responses from both non-veterans as well as veterans but what does it mean to be patriotic in America in the 21st century?  Has the meaning of patriotism changed from the last century?  Is American patriotism accessible across social and cultural boundaries, is it an aspirational idea for some, or is it an outdated social construct in an ever-evolving society?  How can patriotism be measured?

In an increasingly global world, individuals and communities are experiencing severe disruptions to their
way of life. Among these disruptions are the emerging consequences of the climate crisis, the Covid-19
pandemic, and the resurgence of nationalist and alt-right organizations that have sought to exert control over
bodies both at and within national borders. In response to this overlap of disturbances, we are witnessing
grassroots mobilization and the emergence of new coalitions across previously discrete communities to
reconstruct life and perceptions of justice. How can we understand and study the significant disruptions and
