The editors of a forthcoming collection on literature and television titled Broadcasting Beyond Adaptation: Revisiting the Television and Literature Debate invite abstract proposals for potential chapters on intersections of Māori/te reo television and literature. Aimed at Palgrave’s Adaptation Series, this essay collection argues for the re-examination of scholarly discourses surrounding televisual and literary histories of cultural legitimation.
A dark urban setting scattered with dots of light. Yellow gas flames shoot up against a glowing red horizon, creating an almost hellish feel. Flying cars pierce the atmosphere, revealing the orange smog haze that reappears in urban sequences throughout the movie. As the camera moves closer to futuristic, monumental buildings, cold white beams of light transition to interiors dominated by blue hues. Sequences in the Tyrell Corporation are marked by cool tones as opposed to Deckard’s warm-toned private spaces. How would we feel and think about a cult film like Blade Runner (1982) if cinematographic choices about color had been made differently?

What forms does care take? What does taking care of oneself, another, or each other look and feel like? These are questions that have arisen and persisted throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, as everyday intimacies have given way to the need for social distancing, mutual aid groups have organised to try to meet the needs of the most vulnerable in their communities, and NHS hospitals and services have been overwhelmed and altered drastically. Yet these questions also have a rich and interdisciplinary history in the critical medical humanities, disability studies, the environmental humanities, literary studies, affect theory, moral philosophy, feminist theory, and beyond.
Call for Reviewers:
Join us online for the University of Kent’s seventh annual MEMS Summer Festival.

MEMS Fest aims to be an informal space in which postgraduate students, early career researchers, and academics can share ideas and foster conversations, whilst building a greater sense of community. Undergraduate students in their final year of study are also welcome at the conference.
CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS — “BIO AND PSYCHE: READING THE SYMPTOMATIC BODY”
A Virtual Symposium and Workshop Series
Humanities Research Center
Rice University, Houston TX
After a year on Zoom, our bodies have become clear indicators of the disjointed embodiment of the pandemic condition. The lingering effects of COVID-19 blur the boundaries between our biology and psyche. Beyond a philosophical analysis of the mind-body problem, embodied minds and mindful bodies challenge us to find new ways of reading symptoms. What are our bodies telling us?
We are excited to announce the launch of and call for papers for a new peer-reviewed, open-access online journal, Artifact & Apparatus: Journal of Media Archaeology. We invite scholars, curators, and practitioners from art history, film and media studies, library and information science, science and technology studies, and related fields to contribute articles on the history, theory, aesthetics, and practice of media objects, broadly conceived.
Global Storytelling: Journal of Digital and Moving Images is a new journal founded by Editor-in-ChiefYing Zhu, hosted at Hong Kong Baptist University, and published by University of Michigan.
