CALL FOR PAPERS

ReFocus: The Films of Doris Wishman

Producer, distributor, and director Doris Wishman (1912-2002) was a pioneering woman in the film industry, leaving a body of work almost thirty films strong. She is, however, largely overlooked in film histories and archives, her significant oeuvre untapped by critical and cultural analysis. In large measure this is because Wishman worked in normatively neglected filmic paradigms: ... Read More →

Abstract Due: 09/30/2016
Categories: American, 20th & 21st Century, Literary Theory
Location: Baltimore, Maryland (Marriot Waterfront) | Organization: Northeast Modern Language Association

Critical topics and methods have changed in countless ways from the heyday of the formalist critics of the 1940s and 50s. Writers such as Wellek, Brooks, Wimsatt, Frye and Matthiessen were continuously challenged by later generations who questioned the ideological, gendered, and ethnocentric assumptions guiding the critical preoccupations and methods of the Formalist school. This panel seeks papers focused on the possibility for questioning, intervention, or reversal implicitly or explicitly ... Read More →

Legacies of French Film Criticism: Crossing Cultures and Perspectives

Despite a growing trend towards globalization and an increase in transnational film production, distribution and exhibition, not all audiences make sense of movies in the same manner. When films travel across borders, how are their meanings and reception impacted? Is the meaning of a film dependent on the cultural context in which it is read? This interdisciplinary panel will examine film criticism that falls under ... Read More →

Abstract Due: 09/01/2016
Categories:
Location: East Hartford, CT | Organization: Goodwin College

In the final week of January, 1977, the ABC miniseries Roots became the most-watched television program of all time. To the surprise of the show’s producers, Roots became not only a ratings windfall, but a cultural phenomenon, articulating an African-American counter-narrative of American history, provoking a dialogue about the legacy of slavery, and presenting African-American characters with a dignity and integrity that differed sharply from the caricatured representations common to t...
