CFP: Eyes Unclouded: The Films of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli

University of Sussex and the Lewes Depot Cinema present the 2019
Contemporary Directors Symposium

Eyes Unclouded: The Films of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli
May 8^th 2019, Lewes Depot Cinema, Lewes, East Sussex, UK

Keynote speaker: Dr Rayna Denison

(University of East Anglia, author of /Anime: A Critical Introduction/)

“You must see with eyes unclouded by hate. See the good in that which is
evil, and the evil in that which is good. Pledge yourself to neither
side, but vow instead to preserve the balance that exists between the two”

— Princess Mononoke

Hayao Miyazaki is an unusual figure. Only Walt Disney rivals him in for
closeness of his association with the studio he co-founded. Unlike
Disney, however, Miyazaki was also a director, further complicating
distinctions between individual and industrial authorship in the works
he helmed for Ghibli. Often fantastical, his films are also intimately
bound up with very real social and historical questions, ranging from
environmentalism, to the cultural politics of girlhood, to Japan’s role
in World War Two. Though identifiably Japanese, Ghibli is also nothing
if not transnational. The studio has developed adaptations of novels by
Mary Norton, Diana Wynne Jones, and Ursula K. Le Guin, and its
characters have acquired an on- and offline life of their own in
multiple languages and markets; Hello Kitty is arguably Japan’s only
culture industry export to compete with Ghibli for global penetration
and recognition. Finally, Miyazaki’s anime blurs the boundaries that are
often imposed on the form both inside and outside the academy. Films
such as the Oscar and Golden Bear-winning /Spirited Away/ challenge
(western) perceptions of the cartoon as children’s entertainment, and
contemporary expectations of animation as a digital endeavor, all while
achieving both market success and critical acclaim. Perhaps part of
their appeal lies in their resistance to easy categorization.


This one-day symposium seeks to bring together scholars to discuss the
work of Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli. We are open to proposals on all
aspects of this topic, and from a broad variety of perspectives. These
could include issues of industrial and studio authorship; the cultural
politics of representation; material culture (e.g. the Ghibli Museum,
merchandising); the transnational circulation, reception, and influence
of these films; or their digital afterlives. This is just a small
selection of potential examples.

Please send proposals for 20-minute papers to the organizer, Dr Luke
Robinson (
<>) by March 31st 2019. Proposals
should include a title, a 250-word abstract, and a brief author biography.

CFP: Women in East Asian Cinema

A Chinese Film Forum UK Conference

HOME, Manchester <>

4 – 6 December 2019

Keynote Speaker: Dr Jinhee Choi, King's College London

Recent interventions into global film and processes of canonisation have
worked to highlight the contributions of women in spaces and discourses
previously dominated by men. Yet, despite these social and academic
movements, women remain under-represented across vital areas of film
culture as recent discussions of the 2019 Oscars and the 2018 Cannes
Film Festival have shown. This event aims to highlight the increasing
English-language research of contributions by self-identifying women in
East Asian cinema and to interrogate questions of representation,
labour, and production contexts. For English speaking fans, academics
and researchers based outside of East Asia, this work is all the more
important as a counter to the limiting and selective problems of
international film festivals and regional distribution.

This three-day conference seeks to bring together researchers of women
in East Asian cinema for a mix of panels, workshops, and film events
with industry guests to continue and develop these ongoing
conversations. The event is hosted as a collaboration between the
Chinese Film Forum UK (CFFUK), a Manchester-based collective, and HOME,
Manchester's leading independent cross-art venue and cinema. 2019 marks
ten years since “Visible Secrets: Hong Kong's Women Filmmakers”: a film
season that was organised by a nascent CFFUK at HOME's old Cornerhouse
venue. This year also marks HOME's year-long programming initiative
“Celebrating Women in Global Cinema” which continues the celebratory,
research-led and consciousness raising work of that original Visible
Secrets project.

This conference invites papers on a variety of topics concerning women
in East Asian cinema. We take a loose definition of “East Asia” -
including considerations of diaspora, for example – to encourage
submissions from those who may feel limited by narrow geographical

Topics include though are not limited to:

* Case studies of directors, producers, and crew members
* Case studies of significant industry figures
* Case studies of stars
* Representation
* Historiographies and redressing the canon
* Generations – i.e. old age, girlhood
* Spaces for women's voices
* Questions of labour and industry practices
* Production histories
* Herstories
* Women in East Asian diasporas

150-200 word proposals for a 20-minute paper presentation and a short
biography, or queries, should be sent by Monday 29th April 2019 to <>
with “WEACconf” in the email’s subject line. Panel submissions welcome.

Conference organisers for the CFFUK are Dr Felicia Chan, University of
Manchester; Dr Fraser Elliott and Rachel Hayward, HOME; and Professor
Andy Willis, University of Salford.

CFP: Imago Special Issue Surfaces, Boundaries, Formats of Contemporary Images

Imago - Studi di cinema e media/, n. 20/2019

Surfaces, Boundaries, Formats of Contemporary Images

Ilaria A. De Pascalis and Lorenzo Marmo

Contemporary visual culture investigates the materiality of images and
their status as objects, as well as their structure, their boundaries,
and their points of contact with other experiences and phenomena. The
/Imago 20/ dossier aims to address the multifarious ways images permeate
the current mediascape (Pinotti-Somaini). The ever-increasing
changeability that connotes the surfaces of digital images demands a
thorough interrogation of pixel culture, shedding light upon the
mobility, ductility, and reversibility of contemporary devices
(Casetti). At the same time, a stronger awareness seems to be emerging
about the issue of the aspect ratio, whose fluidity plays a primary role
in both social and authorial practices (Doane).

Such an awareness has given the term “format” renewed
relevance. On the one hand, in connection to cinema, it concerns the
geometric configuration of images, i.e. the shape through which they
frame the world. Recent mainstream cinema seems to be playing with
horizontal, vertical and square frames, in order to produce complex
creative and theoretical discourses; and the development of such a trend
might be connected to the new frames implemented by smartphones and
mobile devices. On the other hand, the term “format” suggests the
extension of the image file, i.e. the quantity of information it
contains, with direct consequences on its resolution and visual quality.
In this sense, the notion of format might occasion a wide-ranging
reflection on the new configurations of high- and low-definition, as
well as on the atmospheric dimension of images (Griffero), hence
contributing to the investigation on the materiality of contemporary
images and screens (Bruno). We would like to propose an interaction
between these two meanings of the term “format”, that might become both
metaphor and instrument to map out the new theoretical production on images.

The dossier aims to tackle the boundaries and limits of
contemporary images, addressing their ability to mold our imaginaries
(Bertetto), to deploy spaces and environments (Heise), and to function
as cultural techniques (Siegert) producing complex subjective and
relational configurations. In which ways and to what extent does the
creative dimension pervade social practices in everyday life? And, vice
versa, what are the implications of the reuse of pre-existent materials
in artistic production? In the multifaceted current situation, different
media practices and experiences intertwine with one another developing
original synergies, and it is possible to intercept brand-new models of
vision. The dossier will not focus exclusively on the dynamics of the
web; rather, it also aims at exploring other aspects of the contemporary
mediascape, addressing the ways the recent reflection on images
contaminates and rewrites the configuration of cinema in the traditional
sense. What role is envisioned today for film and traditional
projections? And what new opportunities are opened by the diffusion of
ever-more diversified devices and platforms for image production and use?

The proposals may either consider the theoretical scenario of these
models of creation and reception or focus on case studies that might
enlighten the new forms and the original status of contemporary images.
Submissions may consequently deal with (but are not limited to), the
following topics:

* aspect ratio: contemporary devices allow us to rotate images and
transform their proportions, and such a play with formats also finds
a new expressive role in mainstream cinema and tv (one can think of
the stylistic choices of Xavier Dolan or Wes Anderson, as well as
the recent Amazon series /Homecoming/);
* the diffusion of image-modification-oriented practices on a social
medium such as Instagram (Manovich), the specific modes of
representation implied in the different image proportions (for
instance, the relationship between cover and profile images in
microblogging platforms), and the new role for vertical images in
the arts (as in the “Vertical Cinema” project);
* resolution: high- or low-definition images, media temperatures
(McLuhan), the notion of “pixel” (Cubitt), and its comparison with
the grain of analog photography;
* issues of format in relation to the work of authors, concerning both
shooting practices and distribution options, as a challenge to the
divide between film and digital images (consider for instance the
works by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Alfonso Cuarón or Christopher
* the renewal and hybridization of psychoanalytic approaches to the
study of the relationship between images and subjectivity: the
recent reconfigurations of fetishism, possessivity, and other
dynamics of interaction and interpellation between images and their
users (Mulvey);
* new experiences in the realm of cinephilia (Keathley): on the one
hand, its unflinching investment in film projection; on the other
hand, its metamorphosis in relation to the redefinition of the
cinematic experience and the practices of archival collecting
brought about by new formats and interfaces;
* the idea of carnal images (Sobchack), the dimension of synesthesia,
and the renewed role of tactility (Strauven) in the configuration of
the experience of media;
* the atmospheric quality of images (Böhme), namely their ability to
question ontological theories in the direction of an ongoing
negotiation between objectivity and subjectivity;
* the implications of the relationship between immersive images (IMAX,
3D, virtual reality, etc.) and their audiences: the experiences of
spectatorship and their boundaries, the spectacular connotation of
images, the dynamics of distribution, preservation and use of these
new models of vision (from museums to domestic devices), as well as
their ideological consequences;
* the redefinition of the distinction between amateurs and
professional creators of images, and how such a reconfiguration
questions contemporary reuse practices (Kuhn), from found footage
films to the fragmentation of images in reaction or comment GIFs;
* the specific manipulation of duration and length, considering both
pre-existing and original images. The cinematic time that dominated
the 20th century is now being rewritten and reoriented, for example
through the production of ephemeral videos for online circulation,
and in general towards a blurring of the border between still and
moving images (as detailed by the reflection of the /Still Moving/
field: Bellour; Røssaak).

Proposals of no more than 2500 characters, in Italian or English, and
accompanied by an essential bibliography (five items max), five
keywords, and a biography, should be submitted to
<> and by March 11th, 2019.

The editors will communicate the selection results by the end of March,
and the essays (40.000 characters, accompanied by a 1500 characters
abstract, five keywords and a 500 characters bio) should be completed by
June 20th, 2019, to be sent to the peer reviewers.

Although a widely popular genre for over a century, crime narratives are
presently experiencing an unprecedented popularity all across Europe. In
the fields of literature and television, we are witnessing a deluge of
episodes and series utilizing crime and violence as a central source of
inspiration. Reaching into the shadows of societal construction, these
narratives do more than simply fascinate readers and viewers with
fantasies of extreme brutality; at best, they express a remarkable
tension in social engagement worthy of a critical and scholarly
response. More than any other narrative genre, the crime genre has
proven able to travel across the European continent and beyond, becoming
a vehicle for cultural exchange and debate (Nestingen 2008).

As a result, the generic concept noir is now common among producers,
distributors and audiences of crime fiction, and increasingly noir
narratives have been located in recognizable places and regions across
Europe. Several labels have been coined in order to identify different
strands of EURONOIR by means of geographical qualifiers such as
Mediterranean, Tartan, Catalan, Nordic etc. (Hansen, Turnbull and
Peacock 2018). Besides evoking transborder cultural exchange, crime
narratives are today a strategic means in European place branding on
local, regional, national and transnational levels of communication.

Such spatial labels evoke local and regional narrative/visual styles
that, carefully built by authors, publishers and producers, at the same
time may achieve transnational success in foreign markets. Exchange
between different strands of EURONOIR is creating new opportunities for
generic and cultural hybridization. The international appropriation of
certain stylistic features of Nordic Noir (possibly the most popular
cross-media production strand on the continent for the past decade) in a
great number of European crime narratives is a most interesting case in

Through especially the 1990’s, producers and distributors turned to
international collaboration and circulation as a significant way of
funding increasingly expensive film and television, here with the crime
genre as an especially exploitable vehicle for international attention.
In the increasing demand for crime film and television, producers turned
to the vast European traditions of crime literature and utilized
familiar franchises in crime narrative adaptations. The popularity of
EURONOIR has since been fueled by a plethora of translations,
co-production agreements, local, regional and transnational policy
changes as well as transnational distribution channels and services.

Although EURONOIR is historically linked to the degrading notion of
Euro-pudding, “a co-production determined by the necessities of funding”
(Eleftheriotis 2001) or even “a perversion of the system” (Liz 2015),
there has been a steady rise in successful trans-European
co-productions, especially within film and television production. As a
result, crime narratives are now rather labelled “natural transnational
cop stories” (Bondebjerg 2016), since the topicality of the genre works
very well with transborder activities. Significant transborder
television crime fiction titles are Eurocops (1988-94), Crossing Lines
(2013-) and The Team (2015-). As a concept, then, EURONOIR has gone from
being a critical perspective on funding methods to now involve neutral
references to cross-media crime fiction from somewhere in Europe
(Forshaw 2013). Conceivably, EURONOIR is merely crime literature,
television and film from anywhere in Europe, fostering potential social
debates on a continental level.

In the new millennium, the “digital revolution” (Levy 2001) and “the
Netflix effect” (McDonald and Smith-Rowsey 2016) has disrupted both
production and distribution, challenging traditional distribution
channels and providing new transnational opportunities for producers and
audiences. In this context, written and screened crime fiction is one of
the most important market drivers of transnational cultural exchange in
Europe and beyond. Besides distributing dozens of crime titles, SVOD
services also engage directly in producing crime films and serials,
singling out crime narratives as an important way of penetrating local
markets as well as reaching global audiences through digital streaming

The organizers invite speakers to present work on the production,
distribution and reception of explicitly transnational European crime
narratives as well as more local strands of European crime narratives
production, distribution and reception. This includes significant market
players and institutions in/across Europe, transcontinental creative and
culture industrial processes and practices as well as more locally and
regionally successful and less successful crime narratives. The
conference invites papers on European crime narratives from 1989 until

*Thematic concerns of the conference include, but are not limited to the
following topics:*


• What do we conceptualize as EURONOIR?

• What does EURONOIR mean for producers, distributors and audiences?

• What are the major failures and pitfalls of EURONOIR?

narratives forge a spatial negotiation of Europe and European cultures
and identities?

• What will be the future major tendencies in European crime narratives?

• What role does national cinemas play within EURONOIR?

CFP: Italian Film, Costume Design and Fashion from the Silent Era to the Present - JICMS

Special Issue of the Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies,
on “Italian Film, Costume Design and Fashion from the
Silent Era to the Present” to be edited by Eugenia Paulicelli and
Giuliana Muscio.

Italian Film/Costume Design/Fashion from the Silent Era to the Present.

Fashion and film share a highly interactive quality. As two of the most
popular and widespread commercial industries to grow out of modernity,
cinema and fashion have always had a synergetic relationship, both using
the technology of the camera and that of the body and performance.
Costume is integral both to the actor’s performance and to the cinematic
rendition of visual narratives and experience. Since the birth of cinema
in the late nineteenth century, the film scene has constituted a virtual
shopping window for clothes, exhibiting and making desirable the newest
fashions and goods available at the department stores. Film costume has
not only borrowed from fashion and haute couture; it has also inspired
the production of the newest fashions. Costumes in cinema have also been
used as narrative tools for telling stories on screen that emphasize
character identity and development while also attracting a larger
audience. More recently, the digital genre of “fashion film” has become
a widespread advertising and storytelling tool for fashion luxury brands
as Ferragamo, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Dior amongst the others.

Although fashion and film costume have always been vital
to the totality of the cinema industry, they did not attract academic
attention until the 1990s. That is not to say that the topic was
completely neglected, however, as one of the first books on the
relationship between fashion and cinema, /La moda e il costume nel
film/, was published in 1950 in Italy, edited by the university
professor and critic Mario Verdone, father of actor Carlo Verdone. The
book contains a homage to the costume designer Gino Carlo Sensani, who
was praised by Antonioni. Costume design only began to be recognized as
a profession in the world of Italian cinema in the 1930s, but
costume/cinema and fashion were soon to establish a close link with the
global launch of Italian fashion in the post-war years.

In the United States, film scholars Jane Gaines and
Charlotte Herzog edited their landmark collection /Fabrications/in 1990,
and in 1996 and 1997, UK-based film scholars Pam Cook and Stella Bruzzi
published monographs on fashion in British cinema (Cook: 1996) and on
film, gender, and identity (Bruzzi: 1997). These seminal books offered a
reflection on methodology and histories (of gender and nation), and
paved the way for new interpretations of film, body and performance,
masculinities, fashion, popular culture, and stardom and, at the same
time, challenged age-old hierarchies in the humanities.

The intersection between fashion and film and the growing
scholarship dedicated to it are now becoming a very fertile terrain.
More attention is now being dedicated to the role of costume and costume
design in cinema and its interrelation with fashion, Italian style and
the made in Italy. Nevertheless, the combined study of fashion and film
and the particular focus on Italy is still at an early stage of
development within film studies and especially Italian cinema and media

We invite scholars, costume and fashion designers, archivists, museum
scholars and experts to participate in a special issue of the journal
focusing on film/fashion/costume design with the aim of mapping the
intermedial and transnational history of Italian film/costume
design/fashion and screen media from the silent era until the present.
All film genres are of interest.

Topics to be considered include but are not limited to are:

Silent cinema and costume

Italy and Hollywood

Hollywood in Italy

Italian actors in Hollywood

Transnational impact of cinema-mediated fashion

Italian costume designers in Hollywood and elsewhere

Fashion Houses, sartorie and archives in Italy

Film and photographic archives in Italy and elsewhere

Cities of film and cities of fashion

Branding and film/fashion/costume

Fashion film in historical perspectives

International stars in Italy

Well known and less known costume designers

The role of craftsmanship in costume and fashion

Costume drama

Women directors and the work of women whose work has been neglected

Film/Costume/Fashion and pedagogy, interdisciplinary courses; designing

Each abstract should include the following information:

a) a clear title

b) a 500-word description outlining:

- the topic

- the critical approach of the proposed article—whether theoretical or

- a cohesive description of the proposed article’s argument and objective

- relevant bibliography and filmography

CFP: Beyond Netflix Studying the diversity of practices and platforms in the era of over-the-top television

Call for article proposals

Edited by Audrey Bélanger and Stéfany Boisvert

The deadline for submissions for this issue is February 28th, 2019.

Not unlike other media, television is undergoing major changes. The
Internet, as well as the possibilities of digitisation and storage, has
contributed to the transnational circulation of content and, most
importantly, the development of over-the-top (OTT) media services. These
new digital portals (Lotz 2017), or streaming services, offer a library
of audio-visual productions online without the intermediary of a
distribution or broadcasting company. OTT services therefore act as
gateways to a wide range of audio-visual content, without having to rely
on a schedule (Lotz 2017; Wayne 2017; Johnson, 2018), which changes our
perception of the medium and deeply influences the modes of production,
distribution and reception of /television/ itself.

In the new industry of Internet-distributed television (Lotz 2017), it
goes without saying that the multinational company Netflix currently
occupies the most enviable position. Even though contents offered by
this streaming company are not only “televisual”, Netflix’s influence on
contemporary TV productions is undeniable, and has even been documented
by a significant number of scholars. Several topics have already been
addressed, such as the question of algorithms and Netflix’s system of
recommendations (Gomez-Uribe et Hunt 2015); Netflix’s role in the
broader history of television (Jenner 2014, 2018); the multinational
company’s production/distribution strategies and their impact on viewing
habits (Matrix 2014); or the brand image and branding strategies of
streaming platforms (Wayne 2018). Whole books are dedicated to the study
of Netflix and its history (Keating 2012), its specific modes of
production and distribution, its users’ viewing patterns (Barker et
Wiatrowski 2017), or its impact on the television industry (McDonald et
Smith-Rowsey 2016, Jenner 2018, Johnson 2018).

However, this centrality of Netflix within academic publications conveys
a rather restrictive view of our media ecosystem, almost as if Netflix
was the /only/ platform available. Indeed, publications on new forms of
Internet-distributed television mostly focus on Netflix, even when they
are published outside the United States. This situation leads us to ask:
what about other OTT media services or streaming platforms? What about
local media industries? What is the situation of other portals, whether
they originate from the United States or elsewhere, and how do they
manage — or not — to secure a position in the new industry? On the
flipside, how do traditional broadcasters –– which, it must be reminded,
are still in operation today – are influenced by streaming services and
their in-house productions, and how do they try to secure (or preserve)
a position for their own company? Also, in this era of multi-platform
viewing practices, what are the various consumption and viewing habits
adopted by viewers?

This issue of /Kinephanos/ seeks to better understand the advent of OTT
media services (portals) and the new ways of viewing/distributing TV
productions, by trying to look beyond (or beneath) Netflix in order to
provide a more complete picture of our current TV industry. By
deliberately putting aside the most popular platform, trying to think
“outside the box”, this issue wants to encourage reflection on other
streaming services and topics related to OTT, and, by doing so, to
promote diversity (whether geographic, cultural, or generic). This issue
of /Kinephanos/ is multi-disciplinary, and therefore open to many
different forms of analysis and approaches (institutional, aesthetic,
sociological, narratological, political, cultural, feminist, queer,
reception-based, etc.).

Mulheres e espaço no cinema contemporâneo
Dossier temático organizado por Mariana Liz e Marina Tedesco

A segunda metade do século XX foi marcada, em muitos países, por novas relações entre mulheres e espaço. O incremento do acesso ao mercado de trabalho e aos diferentes níveis de ensino foram importantes conquistas para as mulheres, ainda que atravessadas por assimetrias de classe, raça e região. Um pouco por todo o mundo, enquanto lutavam por mais direitos sociais, laborais e sexuais, as mulheres foram não só abandonando, e ocupando de diferentes formas, o espaço doméstico, como começando a habitar, de forma crescente, o espaço público e mediático.

Tais transformações não demoraram a se fazer sentir no cinema. Não por acaso, em diferentes filmes produzidos nos anos 1960 e 1970, vemos nas telas mulheres que flanam, trabalham ou lutam pela sua sobrevivência nas ruas de diferentes cidades. O espaço natural, muitas vezes usado como metáfora para a condição feminina, porque imbuído de valores tradicionalmente associados às mulheres, como pureza, emoção e irracionalidade, torna-se também espaço de contestação. As mulheres ocupam ao mesmo tempo os espaços de representação e de produção do cinema. No Brasil, nos anos 70, pela primeira vez houve um aumento significativo de diretoras. Algumas delas conseguiram não só realizar uma segunda obra como se mantêm em atividade até hoje. Em Portugal, após 30 anos de intervalo, e do trabalho de Bárbara Virgínia nos anos 40, surgem novamente, nos anos 70, algumas mulheres cineastas. O número crescente de mulheres que têm vindo a ocupar lugares de destaque nas mais diversas áreas da indústria cinematográfica não se restringe a estes dois países.

Neste momento, uma vez mais verificamos uma intensificação das discussões sobre mulheres e cinema. Trata-se de um fenômeno que certamente tem particularidades locais, mas pode ser considerado global, como o demonstram os movimentos estadunidenses Time’s Up e #MeToo, que dialogam com bandeiras levantadas dentro de outras nacionalidades. Diante de tal contexto, o presente dossiê buscará reunir textos que contemplem as múltiplas formas de se aproximar do tema mulheres e espaço no cinema contemporâneo. Desta maneira, convidamos à submissão de artigos que se debrucem sobre os seguintes temas, ou tópicos relacionados:

· Contribuições teóricas sobre mulheres e espaço no cinema do século XXI

· Espaços ocupados por mulheres dentro e fora do écran no cinema do século XXI

· Mulheres e espaço urbano no cinema contemporâneo

· A natureza e o feminino no cinema do século XXI

· O arquivo enquanto espaço feminino

· Os espaços de distribuição do cinema feito por mulheres

· Mulheres e espaços de visionamento de cinema

· Novas abordagens ao espaço ocupado pelas mulheres na história do cinema e na crítica cinematográfica

· As escalas do cinema de mulheres: o feminino e os espaços locais, nacionais e globais no cinema contemporâneo

Women and space in contemporary cinema
Special Issue edited by Mariana Liz and Marina Tedesco

The second half of the 20th century was characterized, in many countries, by the emergence of a new relationship between women and space. Easier access to the labour market, as well as to higher levels of education, were important victories for women, even if these were defined by obvious asymmetries in terms of class, race and location. Across the world, while fighting for fairer social, workplace and sexual rights, women not only abandoned, and occupied in new ways, the domestic space; they also began to inhabit, in a more affirmative manner, the public space, as well as that of the media.

It wasn’t long before such changes had an impact on film. It is not a coincidence that in many films of the 1960s and 1970s we see on screen women walking, working or fighting for their survival in the streets of different cities. Nature, often used as a metaphor for women, because attributed values traditionally associated with the feminine condition, such as purity, emotion and irrationality, also became a space for contestation. Women simultaneously came to occupy the spaces of representation and of production of film. In Brazil, in the 1970s, there was, for the first time in history, a growing number of women directors. Many of these have not only been able to direct more than one film since beginning their careers, but are also still active. In Portugal, three decades after Bárbara Virgínia, conventionally known as the country’s first woman filmmaker, active in the 1940s, women filmmakers finally re-emerged in the 1970s. The growing number of women that have been playing important roles in the most diverse areas of the cinematographic industry is not, of course, restricted to these two countries.

Today we witness once again vivid debates on the relationship between women and cinema. This is a phenomenon that certainly has local specificities, but can be considered to be global, as testified by the US movements Time’s Up and #MeToo, which dialogue with similar campaigns emerging in other national contexts. As such, this special issue aims to bring together essays that discuss the multiple ways in which women and space can be examined in contemporary film. Hence, we seek pieces that address the following, and other, similarly related, topics:

· Theoretical contributions on women and space in 21st century cinema

· The spaces occupied by women on- and off screen in 21st century cinema

· Women and urban space in contemporary film

· Nature and the feminine in 21st century cinema

· The archive as a feminine space

· Film distribution spaces occupied by the cinema directed by women

· Women and film viewing spaces

· New approaches to the space occupied by women in film history and film criticism

· The different scales of ‘women’s cinema’: the feminine and the local, national and global spaces of contemporary film

This special issue is edited by Mariana Liz (University of Lisbon) and Marina Tedesco (Universidade Federal Fluminense).

Mariana Liz is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at ICS-ULisboa, the Institute of Social Sciences at the University of Lisbon, in Portugal.

Mujeres y espacio en el cine contemporáneo
Dosier Especial editada por Mariana Liz y Marina Tedesco

En muchos países, la segunda mitad del siglo XX estuvo marcada por nuevas relaciones entre las mujeres y los espacios. El aumento del acceso al mercado laboral y a los diferentes niveles de enseñanza fueron importantes conquistas de las mujeres, aunque atravesadas por asimetrías de clase, raza y región. En gran medida, por el mundo entero, mientras luchaban por más derechos sociales, laborales y sexuales, las mujeres fueron no solamente abandonando, pero ocupando de formas distintas, el espacio doméstico, a la vez que iban habitando, de manera creciente, el espacio público y mediático.

Esas mismas transformaciones no tardaron en surgir en el cine. No por casualidad, en distintas películas producidas en los años 1960 y 1970 se pueden ver en las pantallas mujeres que deambulan, trabajan o luchan por sobrevivir en las calles de muchas ciudades. Por estar impregnado de valores tradicionalmente asociados a las mujeres, como pureza, emoción e irracionalidad, el espacio natural -muchas veces usado como metáfora de la condición femenina- se vuelve, igualmente, en un espacio de contestación. Las mujeres pasan a ocupar, a la vez, los espacios de representación y producción en el cine. En Brasil, en los años 1970, por primera vez hubo un significativo aumento de directoras. Algunas de ellas lograron realizar una segunda obra y se mantienen activas hasta hoy. En Portugal, tras un período de 30 años, y del trabajo de Bárbara Virgínia en los años 1940, otra vez surgen cineastas en los años 1970. El número creciente de mujeres que empiezan a ocupar lugares de destaque en las más distintas áreas de la indústria cinematográfica no se restringe a esos dos países.

Ahora mismo, se puede verificar, una vez más, una intensificación de las discusiones acerca del tema mujeres y cine. Se trata de un fenómeno que seguramente tiene particularidades locales, pero puede considerarse global, como lo demuestran los movimientos estadounidenses Time’s Up y #MeToo, que dialogan con banderas enarboladas desde otras nacionalidades. Ante este contexto, el presente dosier buscará reunir textos que contemplen las múltiples formas de acercarse al tema mujeres y espacio en el cine contemporáneo. De esta manera, invitamos al envío de artículos que aborden los siguientes temas o tópicos relacionados:

· Contribuciones teóricas acerca de las mujeres y el espacio en el cine del siglo XXI

· Espacios ocupados por mujeres dentro y fuera de la pantalla en el cine del siglo XXI

· Mujeres y espacios urbanos en el cine contemporáneo

· La naturaleza y el femenino en el cine del siglo XXI

· El archivo como espacio femenino

· Los espacios de distribución del cine organizados por mujeres

· Mujeres y espacios de asistencia de cine

· Nuevos abordajes del espacio ocupado por mujeres en la história del cine y en la crítica cinematográfica

· Las escalas del cine de mujeres: el femenino y los espacios locales, nacionales y globales en el cine contemporáneo

Este dosier está bajo la coordinación de Mariana Liz (Universidade de Lisboa) y Marina Tedesco (Universidade Federal Fluminense).

CFP: II Coloquio Internacional Latin American Women's Filmmaking: Modos de hacer: cines y mujeres de América Latina


II Coloquio Internacional Latin American Women’s Filmmaking: Modos de hacer: cines y mujeres de América Latina

Fecha: 11, 12 y 13 de septiembre de 2019
Lugar: Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (España)

Hemos abierto hasta el 30 de marzo el plazo de propuestas para el II Coloquio Internacional Latin American Women’s Filmmaking: Modos de hacer: cines y mujeres de América Latina, que tendrá lugar en la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (España) los días 11, 12 y 13 de septiembre de 2019.

Esta convocatoria pretende incentivar la reflexión sobre un conjunto de ejes que permitan seguir abriendo enfoques y perspectivas. El primero de ellos es la atención prioritaria a los procesos y condiciones materiales de producción frente a las obras, en tanto espacios de coproducción de lo social, lo político y lo estético. Este punto vendría acompañado de un desvío del foco en el largometraje ficcional hacia otras prácticas audiovisuales (cortos, mediometrajes, documentales, tv, videografías…), donde, como alertaba Paulo Paranaguá (Tradición y modernidad en el cine de América Latina, 2003), se hacía evidente la amplia y masiva feminización de la profesión desde los años 1970-1980.

El segundo objetivo es pensar América Latina desde perspectivas transterritoriales o desterritorilizadas e identidades transculturales que pongan en tensión la identidad histórica y geo-política de la región; y desde posiciones que problematicen el campo de los estudios (cinematográficos) latinoamericanos como un ámbito de especialización acrítico respecto a las tradiciones teóricas e historiografías sobre las que se han asentado y las relaciones (desiguales) de poder en ellas inscritas.

Finalmente, “modos de hacer” pretende ser una expresión inclusiva respecto a un amplio y plural conjunto de prácticas, desbordar el ámbito del hacer de las cineastas para integrar otras actividades, acciones y profesiones ejercidas en femenino (activistas, archiveras, organizadoras de eventos cinematográficos y festivales, actrices, gestoras, programadoras, espectadoras, etc.) sin las que no es posible comprender el cine y el audiovisual como campo extendido y en todas sus dimensiones, los cines en plural.

Desde estas premisas, el coloquio tendrá como ejes temáticos prioritarios:

Descolonizar/feminizar la teoría y la historiografía del cine latinoamericano.

Colectivos y hacer colaborativo

Relatos y experiencias a través del Atlántico.

Performatividad, teatralización, memoria.

Autorías en femenino, creatividad distribuida y nociones expandidas de autoría y creatividad.

Discursos virtuales y online del audiovisual feminista y decolonial.

Los archivos y el hacer de las archiveras.

Las propuestas en español, portugués o inglés (máximo 3.000 caracteres, contando espacios) serán remitidas a la dirección de correo electrónico antes del día 30 de marzo de 2019.

II International Conference "Ways of Making and Doing. Women and Cinemas of Latin America"

Date: 11, 12 and 13 September, 2019
Venue: Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain)

We are now accepting submissions for the II International Conference "Ways of Making and Doing. Women and Cinemas of Latin America", to be held at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain) on September 11-13, 2019. Deadline on March, 30.

This call for papers aims to encourage reflection on a number of strands that might open up and expand on existing methodological approaches and theoretical perspectives on Latin American Women’s Filmmaking. The first strand prioritises attention paid to the material conditions of film production over and above textual aspects, understanding the former as spaces for the co-production of the social, the political and the aesthetic. This point would be accompanied by a move away from the usual focus on the fictional feature film towards other audiovisual practices (short and medium-length films, documentaries, TV, video production ...), where, as Paulo Paranaguá warned (Tradición y modernidad en el cine de América Latina, 2003), the massive feminisation of the profession has become evident since the 1970s and 1980s.

The second objective is to think Latin America from transterritorial or deterritorialised perspectives and transcultural identities, which puts in tension the traditional historical and geopolitical identity of the region. Moreover, we aim to problematize those Westernised positions in the field of Latin American film studies which are acritical towards the power relations inscribed in the theoretical and historiographic traditions on which they have settled.

Finally, “ways of making and doing” means to be an inclusive expression with respect to a broad and plural set of practices, going beyond the scope of the directing work to integrate other types of labour and action conducted and led by women (archival work, event and festival organisation, film activism, acting, management, programming, spectatorship, etc.) without which it is not possible to understand the extended field of the audiovisual — or of cinemas in plural.

Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

Decolonisation / depatriarchalisation of the theory and historiography of Latin American cinema.

Collectives and collaborative work.

Journeys across the Atlantic.

Performativity, dramatization, and memory.

Women’s authorship, distributed creativity, and expanded notions of authorship and creativity.

Feminist and decolonial audiovisual online discourses.

Archives and archiving. 

The deadline for submissions (max. 3.000 characters, counting spaces) is the 30 March 2019. The proposals should be sent in English, Spanish or Portuguese to

CFP: Feminist Pedagogies - special issue of MAI: Feminism and Visual Culture

Calling contributions to a special issue of MAI: Feminism and Visual
Culture on Feminist Pedagogies

The intersectional feminist and LGBTQI journal /MAI/ is seeking
contributions to a special issue on feminist pedagogies. Across the
board, feminist research and teaching in Higher Education is
increasingly vulnerable to ideological attack. The recent “prank”
conducted by Pluckrose, Lindsay and Boghossian to make fun at so-called
“grievance studies” systematically works to undermine scholarly work in
feminist, queer, critical disability and critical race studies and other
fields. This context makes feminist teaching both more vital, and more
vulnerable, than ever, as revealed by open letters such as that
published in the second issue of MAI.
This special issue aims to explore the place of feminism in the
classroom, revealing pleasure and resistance, complaint and celebration.

We welcome contributions that address the strategies, obstacles and
opportunities of feminist pedagogy in a range of contexts from classroom
discussions and syllabi to faculty committee meetings, screening rooms
and activist spaces. Feminist teaching happens everywhere. Contributions
might range from conventional academic articles (6000-8000 words) to
interviews (1000-3000 words), creative writing (poems, short stories,
creative responses, max 3000 words), video essays (5-10 mins with brief
supporting statement of 800-1000 words), and photographs,
visual/audiovisual or interactive art.

Abstracts should be 200-250 words, and be accompanied by a short bio.
Please email abstracts to /MAI /editorial board member Clara
Bradbury-Rance (
<>) by 8th March 2019. Contributors
will be notified of the status of their proposal in early April and full
submissions will be due by 31st August 2019 (see here

CFP: Research Methods in Film Studies: Challenges and Opportunities

18-19 October 2019, Ghent, Belgium

Keynote speakers:

Catherine Grant (Birkbeck, University of London)

Barbara Flueckiger (Zurich University)

The academic study of film has involved looking at generic conventions,
authorial features, and the use and function of different aspects of
film language, including mise-en-scène, narrative, editing and sound.
Film Studies has also examined the relationship between film and
society, by contemplating issues such as race and gender, the on- and
off-screen construction of stardom, the association between cinema,
ideology and propaganda, and the way in which films mirror and shape
national and transnational identities. The industrial features of film,
film policy and legislation, as well as matters of film reception,
distribution and exhibition, venues and audiences (cf. the New Cinema
History Movement) have also been extensively considered by scholars,
within and beyond the discipline.

Research questions and methodologies from the humanities and social
sciences have often been used in conjunction in the analysis of this
multitude of topics. The history of Film Studies is thus one of
transdisciplinarity. As the discipline moves forward, and its future is
called into question – both in relation to debates about the
post-cinematic era (Denson and Leyda 2016) and the changing academic
context (Fairfax 2017) – methodological considerations have been given
greater attention in academic discussions. This is at least partly
connected to the rise of the Digital Humanities, which has afforded the
study of film with a variety of new digital sources, tools and methods,
as well as a growing interest in quantitative data, which allows for new
forms of analysis of film texts, industries, audiences and cultures. At
the same time, more traditional methods, such as the multiple approaches
to textual analysis, the use of interviews and surveys, as well as
archival research, retain their important place within Film Studies. The
wide variety of methodologies adopted by researchers of film across the
globe have meant the discipline is now faced with a series of challenges
and opportunities.

Aiming to explore a wide range of approaches, this conference invites
contributions that engage with current methodological challenges and
opportunities in Film Studies. We welcome theoretical contributions on
methodological issues in Film Studies, papers or workshop sessions on
specific methods, as well as research papers paying considerable
attention to the methodological framework at stake.

Abstracts are invited on topics related to research methods in Film
Studies, including but not limited to:

*Statistical methods for textual analysis

*Film Studies and big data

*Text mining in Film Studies

*CAQDAS and Film Studies

*Cinema and social network analysis

*Audience research

* Methods in New Cinema History

*Production analysis and film policy research

*Film and video as methodological tools

*Narrative analysis

*Archival research

*Methodological issues in specific schools of film analysis (e.g.
feminism, phenomenology, neoformalism, auteurism, post-structuralism,
critical theory, cultural studies, political economy …)

*Neurocinematics and neuroscience of film

The conference will also host a special panel organized by the ECREA
Television Studies section. The section invites paper proposals devoted
to new methodologies in the research of television fiction and
non-fiction content. The section welcomes submissions that explore
comparisons, international approaches and examples of concrete and
innovative case studies, in order to shed light on the future of TV
Studies in the new digital context.

Please submit your abstract (max 300 words) along with key references,
institutional affiliation and a short bio (max 150 words) or a panel
proposal, including a panel presentation (max 300 words) along with
minimum 3, maximum 4 individual abstracts.

Submission deadline: 12 May 2019.
Proposal acceptance notification: 21 June 2019.

Please send your abstract/panel proposals to the conference email
address: <>

CFP - International Conference Powers of Sound (Brazil)



June 5th to 7th, 2019

Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, Brazil <>

A man with a loudspeaker is more imperialistic than one without

because he can dominate more acoustic space”

(R. Murray Schafer, The Soundscape)

The 1st International Conference on Sonorities Research - Powers of
Soundis an initiative by the Image, Sonorities and Technology Studies
Group (GEIST), formed by researchers from six Brazilian institutions:
UFSC, UFES, IFRS, UFRGS, UNISINOS and UFF. The initiative seeks to
promote and develop discussion of sound and its intersections with
related fields – Technology, Audiovisual Media, Music, Anthropology,
History, Philosophy, Communication, Economy, etc – through a
multidisciplinary perspective, in different countries, expanding the
reach of the Sound Studies field in Brazil in dialog with foreign
institutions and researchers.

The possibility of sounds that never stop sounding or sounds that are
heard without us being able (or needing) to identify their origins
transforms the act of listening to and creating sounds into a relation
of power. Contemporary society not only fills the environment with an
incalculable number of new and powerful sounds, but simultaneously
inserts these sounds into modes of producing sense. In a moment of
ideological hardening where the state and society have seen often
violent disputes, sound has been shown to be an efficient instrument of
control and of the infliction of damage upon people and objects. Sounds
work with identities, whether in groups or individually; sounds
configure relations of power, among individuals or institutions; sounds
unveil historical structures of production; sounds are essential
components of the entertainment industry; sounds cause pain and death
and pleasure.

More than an object of research, sound should be thought of as an
instrument and as a method of investigation, as a mediator among
different models of listening and the relations of power, economy,
culture, aesthetics etc. that are constructed from those previously
mentioned phenomena. With this breadth in mind, the Powers of
Soundconference emphasizes materialities of sound — those that mobilize
practices of listening and sounding, or the artifacts and devices,
technological or not, that shape and make potent what can be
accomplished with sounds. For this first edition of the conference – to
be held at UFSC, Brazil, from June 5th to 7th, 2019 – we invite
researchers from across the globe for a three day discussion, arranged
in working groups with specific research themes, roundtables with
invited experts and international keynote speakers, and the exhibition
of sound performances relevant to the main theme of the conference.

Presentations will be organized according to the following themes:

Streams descriptions:

Sound media archeology:This perspective takes a careful look at “sonic
objects” and its materialities. It includes the study of sound devices
in their machinic specificity and within the creation of a logic
inherent in the context in which they are used, problematizing
sociocultural approaches that tend to abstract or refuse aspects of the
physicality of objects. This streamwill accept proposals that deal with
different technological configurations, different sound apparatuses and
their particular existence in a given mediatic ecology.

Sound, affection, and significance: This stream concentrates researches
that investigate the sounds both as text and force, aiming for
possibilities of convergence between their somatic and cognitive
dynamics. Thus, it intends to understand the interfaces between what a
sound can do and what it can mean, with an emphasis on its aesthetic
dimension. We accept papers that promote analyzes of musical and sound
works, both from a hermeneutic perspective, and those that elicit the
effects of sonic vibrations on the bodies of their producers and listeners.
Sound technologies and sociocultural practices:Technologies can be
understood as a set of solutions developed and crystallized in different
objects designed to perform certain tasks. This definition may be
extended to incorporate the protocols and pragmatics cultivated in
certain human activities that, although not depending on specific
machines, propose an organization of actions and a certain logic
internal to those processes. Technologies are not dissociated from
sociocultural phenomena, but sometimes propose an autonomous and
uncritical discourse about their own functioning. This stream intends to
discuss different aspects of these relations.
Sound and culture: Sounds are mediators of social and cultural
processes. This stream deals with sounds as processes and dynamics of
circulation and symbolic consumption, as well as a means with which
socialization, transformation, maintenance, cohesion and organization of
social groups and their respective cultural paradigms takes place. It
receives papers on sociocultural phenomena from a perspective that
focuses on sonorities as a central tool for these practices.

Soundart: This stream is concentrated on the emerging field of sound
art, be it in its aspects of production or experiencing of sonic pieces.
It receives theoretical papers that critically analyze the tasks and
experiences related to the making and auditioning of installations and
sound performances, experimental pieces made from the use of sound
recordings, radiart, electroacoustic music, as well as poetic works that
focus the word as sonority, instead of its semantic aspects, etc.

CFP: Special Issue of Northern Lights: Film and Media Studies Yearbook

Click here for more information >>

Guest editor: Temenuga Trifonova, Associate Professor of Cinema and
Media Studies, York University, Toronto

Europe at the Crossroads: Cinematic Takes The history of the idea of
‘European identity’ can be described in terms of, on one hand, a
constant oscillation between two poles, one instrumental or pragmatic
(the Europe of norms), the other affective (the Europe of values and
feelings) and, on the other hand, in terms of a continuous, unresolved
conflict between the belief in some ineffable European ‘spirit’ or
‘ethos’ and the outright rejection of any sort of ‘European identity’.
Indeed, a recurring theme in all critical writings on Europe and
European identity is the idea that to be European is to doubt that there
is something like a ‘European identity’. To illuminate the ambiguity
pervading attempts to define European identity one need only juxtapose
the traditional characteristics of Europeanness deriving from the
continent’s founding philosophical and religious traditions, including
Christianity, Roman law and the Enlightenment – here ‘Europeanness’ is
defined in relation to the concepts of the polis, citizenship, democracy
and participation, rationalism, universality and cosmopolitanism – with
the immense contradictions underlying the concept of Europeanness
defined in relation to political and economic circumstances.

Over the last couple of decades, Europe has seen a trend of populist
right-wing parties riding on the wave of multicultural backlash across
Europe, gaining widespread support with xenophobic nationalist-populist
slogans purporting to save ethno-nationalist culture from the threat of
immigrants. The Brexit referendum, following a prolonged political
campaign of heightened anxiety over border control, was simply the most
dramatic expression of the crisis of democracy Europe is facing. The
sweeping territorial recalibration following the establishment of the EU
has led many scholars to declare the emergence of a post-national
European identity and citizenship based on mobility and universal human
rights rather than on the rights of persons as members of nationstates.
In Tracking Europe: Mobility, Diaspora, and the Politics of Location
(2010) Ginette Verstraette claims that the notion of ‘imagined mobility’
has become more essential to the notion of European identity than
Benedict Anderson’s influential idea of ‘imagined community’, which is
still territorial in nature. However, while it might seem that we have
entered a post-national age marked by identities that are provisional,
fluid, incoherent and ephemeral, the nation state has not lost any of
its relevance or authority: regardless of the supposed dissolution of
borders under globalization, modern citizenship still embeds identity
and legal rights in the territorial nation-state.

The purpose of this special issue of Northern Lights: Film and Media
Studies Yearbook is to reflect on contemporary debates around the
concepts of ‘Europe’ and ‘European identity’ through an examination of
European films from 2000 to the present dealing with various aspects of
globalization (the refugee crisis, labour migration, the resurgence of
nationalism and ethnic violence, neoliberalism, transnational
commodification, post-colonialism, transnational capital etc.) with a
particular attention to the ambiguities and contradictory aspects of the
figure of the migrant and the ways in which this figure challenges us to
rethink European identity and its core Enlightenment values
(citizenship, justice, ethics, liberty, tolerance, and hospitality).
Migrants and refugees have become, in Rey Chow’s words, ‘the new
“primitives” of Europe’. On the other hand, however, the migrant/refugee
has also been celebrated as a 1) symbol of ‘nomadic excess’; 2) the
‘structural excess’ constitutive of law and morality; 3) a utopian
figure representing a model for rethinking the idea of ‘Europe’ and of
‘European identity’.

CFP: Global Colour and the Moving Image Conference 2019

Global Colour and the Moving Image

10 - 12 July 2019

University of Bristol

*Keynote speakers:

*Professor Barbara Flueckiger, University of Zurich

*Professor Ranjani Mazumdar, Jawaharlal Nehru University

Special screening and Q&A at the Bristol Watershed with British film
director John Boorman CBE

Ten years on from the ‘Colour and the Moving Image’ conference in
Bristol, the study of film colour has grown impressively. While the
majority of research has been undertaken on early 20th century colour
processes, far less is known about the introduction and application of
colour technologies from the second half of the 20th century onwards. As
stocks such as Eastmancolor, Agfacolor, and Fujicolor became cheaper,
national film industries increasingly converted to colour, exhibiting a
variety of aesthetic, cultural, economic and intermedial approaches to
its application.

We are pleased to announce our call for papers for the*‘Global Colour
and the Moving Image’*conference which aims to attract speakers on
themes, countries and contexts that will add to our knowledge of the
origins and nature of colour film’s increasing ubiquity since the 1950s.
The conference is organised by the AHRC-funded ‘The Eastmancolor
Revolution and British Cinema, 1955-1985’ project between the University
of Bristol and University of East Anglia in an attempt to reach a
greater understanding of the multiple, comparative complexities of
global colour and the moving image.

We are seeking individual papers or panel proposals (consisting of three
or four papers) of up to*20 minutes*which are invited on, but are not
limited to, the following themes:

* Comparative histories and applications
* Film colour and its intermedial contexts
* Colour and genres
* Film stars and colour
* Histories and case studies of particular film stocks / processes
* Colour, avant-garde and experimental practices
* Colour and television
* Colour and advertising
* Technicolor after Three-Strip
* Costume and set design
* Methodologies for studying film colour
* Issues of preservation and restoration
* Digital colour technologies and aesthetics
* Colour theories and the moving image
* Colour and film industry economics
* Colour, audiences and reception
* Colour in amateur and industrial films
* Invisible labour in the colour industries – laboratories, etc.

Please visit
guidance on how to download and submit an individual / panel proposal form.

Please return your proposal
<>by no later than 31 January

Further details about the conference will be announced after the
submission deadline.

CFP: Shaping Knowledge: encounters between word and image

‘Shaping Knowledge: encounters between word and image’

Media Practice Education and MeCCSA Practice Network Annual Symposium 2019
Hosted by the School of Arts, University of Kent

Friday 14^th June 2019

This symposium will explore the interaction between word and image
within media-based practice research. As creative practice has
increasingly found a home within academia, and as digital technologies
have made possible new methodologies and forms of output, the hegemony
of the written word within arts and humanities scholarship has been
challenged from different directions. From curated exhibitions, through
audiovisual essays and interactive websites, to sound and Internet art,
practice research now challenges the logocentric focus of humanities
research across all media.

Yet media-based practice research cannot entirely escape the written and
spoken word. Words permeate it - for example, in the narratives of
podcasts, the voice overs of films, and the wall texts of artworks. They
also surround it – for example in the framing statements provided in
programme notes, catalogues, and websites, in the written components of
PhD dissertations, and in REF portfolio submissions.

The interplay between word and image that underpins much practice
research has opened new opportunities but also raised new challenges.
For example, how to translate detailed research into shortform or
non-durational media and artworks without simplifying it? How to put
words and images into non-hierarchical relationships? How to acknowledge
and articulate the process of research and creation?

The symposium will explore ways in which practitioners in various fields
engage with the interdependence of word and image. By bringing together
disciplines including film, photography, online video, sound art, radio,
graphic design, and digital and media art, it will aim to bring the
audiovisual strategies for ‘shaping knowledge’ adopted within different
media forms into conversation with each other, and allow them to
illuminate each other.

Themes for presentations may include:

* Essayistic practices (essay films, photo essays, video essays,
podcasts, etc.)**
* The human voice: the spoken and performed word
* The aesthetic and affective qualities of words
* Reflexivity into creative practice and practice research
* Abstracts, synopses and REF statements: articulating practice
* The PaR PhD: articulating and contextualising research in the
* Impact: presenting practice research for non-academic audiences**
* Non-verbal knowledge: can creative research outputs ‘speak for

Proposals may take the form of scholarly papers on these or other
relevant themes, or presentation of practice-based work that works
through the relationship of word and image. Non-traditional forms of
presentation (for example, lecture-performances, videos, photo essays,
simple installations, interactive websites, etc.) are encouraged.

Papers presented at the symposium will be considered for a special issue
of/ Media Practice and Education/ in 2020.

Please send proposals (300 words approx.) for all presentations, papers,
artworks or screenings, outlining their aim and form, along with a short
biography to the symposium conveners: Richard Misek
( <>) and Maurizio
Cinquegrani ( <>)
by Friday 29th March 2019.

Hosted by the Centre for Film and Media Research at the School of Arts,
University of Kent, the event will take place at the university’s
beautiful hilltop Canterbury campus, an easy 55-minute train journey
from Central London.

The MeCCSA Practice Network champions practice within the Media,
Communications and Cultural Studies Association, ensuring that those
that teach and research practice have a strong voice within the subject
association and beyond. We are dedicated to maintaining and developing
links with the creative industries and relevant national and
international networks and associations.

CFP: Hispanics and Film - VI Academic Conference Tecmerin
International Conference
Hispanics and Film: Modernity and Social Emergency
VI Academic Conference Tecmerin, 2-5 July 2019, University Carlos III de

Deadline: 1st April 2019
In the last years, the interest in Film Studies has grown within the
disciplines of Hispanics. It can be argued that film and other media
have contributed to the strength of Hispanics in times of cultural and
economic globalization.

This boom in the union between Film and Hispanic studies has occurred
in parallel with the establishment and consolidation of cinema as an
academic discipline. Several factors have favored this union. First, the
very notion of Hispanics has contributed to the reduction of distances
between the different cultural and geographical schools. Second, cinema
has proven itself as a useful tool for teaching Spanish as a second
language. Third, the epistemological and methodological modifications of
comparative literature studies have helped hispanists to analyse the
complexity of film. Scholars of film and Hispanic studies have welcomed
a great variety of proposals and theoretical frameworks from other
disciplines (from psychoanalysis to cultural studies, or gender studies,
to name just a few). Finally, scholars from different countries have
specialized in Hispanic cinemas, and have contributed with their PhDs
and other bibliographical works. This has been accompanied by the
proliferation and consolidation of national and international
institutions that have helped to welcome and give visibility to the
studies of Hispanics and cinema.

The geographical possibilities of Hispanics have been expanded too:
the cultural productions in the Iberian peninsula (including its
minority languages), in Latin America, the United States, other
diasporas... Cinema, with its many forms of circulation, has favored
intercultural communication in a world in which the coexistence of
modernity and globalization has displaced and questioned traditional
modes of representation.

We invite researchers from all over the world to present their work from
any of the perspectives offered by the collaborations between Hispanics
and Film Studies, including:

* Representation.
* Memory.
* Aesthetics and form.
* Gender and identity.
* Auteur cinema.
* Popular cinema.
* Industry.
* Star Studies.
* Coproductions and transnationality.
* Exile and migrations.
* Adaptations.
* Comparative Studies.
* Teaching film and hispanics.
* Civilization and culture.
* Post-colonial studies.
* The histories of Hispanic Studies.
* Internet and new media.
* Television Studies.

During the conference, there will be a tribute to some of the most
relevant associations and research groups of Hispanic Studies, such as

In addition, Filmoteca Española will program the film retrospective
"Hispanismo y Cine". It will be a collective proposal with the selection
of some of the most representative titles of film and Hispanic studies.
Each screening will be accompanied by a presentation and discussion.
