PILOT ISSUE of the research platform In VIVO: “CRISIS”
New deadline: 31st October 2021
(for French see below)
In Vivo (http://invivoarts.fr/) is a bilingual online platform (French and English) specialized in multidisciplinary research on contemporary artistic creation, with an (almost) exclusive preoccupation with Performing Arts (theatre, choreography and dance, circus, performance art, opera) and Cinema.
This panel explores topographies of memory and architecture as a powerful force for cinematic storytelling, cityscapes’ psychosis, etc. As part of the special session, we are looking for contributions examining and analyzing diverse relationships between cinema, television, architecture, and memory and their links with contemporary Spanish media and identity. Submissions in English and Spanish, although we recommend the latter.

“Inglese Italianato e un diabolo incarnato”
Translation and the Appropriation of Italian Culture in Early Modern England
The taste of festivals forms a significant part of our life, and many festivals are associated with religion, remembrance, and prayer. Food during the religious holiday of Christmas can either make or break the holiday spirit; for example, the memory of having the best turkey, the best mince pies, and sitting around the Christmas tree warms many a heart. Carnival, another religious festival that is also a cultural event, has its own traditions regarding festival food.

Proposed collection: “The Time of Close Reading: Victorian Fiction’s Presents”
Editors: Debra Gettelman, Audrey Jaffe, and Mary Ann O’Farrell
Deadline extended to September 1, 2021
Despite the spatializing intimacy that animates and names it, close reading exists in and as time. Our collection “The Time of Close Reading” seeks to interrogate the multiple meanings that attach to each of our titular terms—“time,” “close,” and “reading”—in the present moment, specifically within studies of the Victorian novel.
