PAMLA 2021 LAS VEGAS: "CITY OF GOD, CITY OF DESTRUCTION" (Thursday, November 11 - Sunday, November 14, 2021 at Sahara Las Vegas Hotel, hosted by University of Nevada, Las Vegas)
Session: Film and Philosophy
Contacts: Adam Graves, Metropolitan State University of Denver (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Description: This virtual (online) panel is designed to explore all aspects of this now flourishing subfield—from the relationship between philosophy and cinematic representation in general to questions about how film can illuminate specific philosophical problems; from philosophical interpretations of particular films, directors, or genres to engagements and/or responses to recent work in the philosophy of film.
Top tip: when you log in and enter the Call for Papers portal, remember that you have to click on the title of the session that you are interested in submitting your paper to, and then click on the green “Submit Abstract” icon at the top right corner of the page!
And for those who are interested, note that our conference theme this year is “City of God, City of Destruction,” an homage to contemporary urban literature, culture, architecture, as well as other topics, including the noir genre, postmodern cityscapes, dystopia and postindustrial decay, and/or the sublime, spiritual spaces found across many urban depictions.
We look forward to reading your submissions, and all of us at PAMLA HQ hope for calmer, better days ahead.
