Global Cinemas

Global Cinemas, Midwest Modern Language Association, MMLA, Milwaukee, WI, November 7-10, 2013
DEADLINE July 3, 2013

The 55th Annual Convention will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from November 7-10, 2013 at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center

MMLA Film III Section: Global Cinema.
Location: Wisconsin, United States
Call for Papers Date: 2013-07-03

Topic: Global Cinemas
The MMLA Film III Section is accepting proposals for papers on any aspect of Global Cinema. By global cinemas we are referring to films made outside of the U.S./Hollywood context. Papers can be related to the conference informal theme of Art and Artifice, but other themes are certainly welcome. We are interested in sparking broad discussions about the state of global cinema in the twenty-first century, though historical perspectives are welcome as well. Possible questions to trigger ideas include: Is the existing cultural and cinematographical intermediality between (inter)national cinemas giving way to a new definition of global film? Are adaptations, remakes, transfers, and/or metaphor ways of rearranging the cultural and cinematic traditions?

Please send 250-word abstracts by July 3 to Luis Guadano, lguadano@odu.edu and Caryn C. Connelly, connellyc1@nku.edu.
