CFP Doing Women’s Film & TV History (Ireland)

The fifth biennial Doing Women’s Film & Television History conference invites proposals from researchers and practitioners engaged in the exploration, uncovering, archiving and dissemination of women’s roles in film and television, as well as wider media, both in the past and today. The theme of this conference – ‘Forming Histories/ Histories in Formation’ – aims to foreground issues pertaining to the production, curation and archiving of women’s histories in film and television as well as the methods for, and approaches to, producing and shaping these histories as they form. More particularly, much can be learned from the diversity of practices, experiences and narratives of women’s film and television history as they pertain to: national, transnational, world and global histories; neglected, peripheral or hidden histories; organisations such as museums, archives and universities; collectives, groups and movements such as #MeToo; local communities and community media; emergent forms and platforms; and historical approaches to women’s reception of film and television as well as historicising current practices and experiences of reception, fandom and consumption.

This three-day conference casts the net wide so that it can capture a range of experiences, practices, industries, nationalities and voices that are situated in relation to women and their histories. The conference provides a platform for those working in and researching film, television and media more generally as well as those invested in the production of these histories and narratives of the past and as they materialise.

CFP Multivoicedness in European Cinema (Ireland)

Multivoicedness in European Cinema: Representation, Industry, Politics
ECREA Film Studies Section Conference
10th and 11th November, 2017
University College Cork, Ireland

European cinema has evolved from a homogenous and selective object of study, mostly shaped by frameworks of national industry, identity and culture, to a much more diversified field, reflecting the shift to a post-colonial, post-communist, post-national, globalised Europe. In the context of an increasingly diverse but also split society, in which social polarisation is on the increase due to the crisis of the Eurozone and the decline of the welfare states, and in which popularism and nationalisms are on the rise, resulting in the strengthening of the Fortress Europe project, this conference aims to turn the spotlight on the less-represented and less-audible voices in European cinema in all its forms: fiction, documentary, mainstream, art house, independent, exploitation, art film. With an inclusive focus encompassing issues of production, distribution and reception, of representation and of form, of dissent and of control, the conference invites contributions that engage from a wide range of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches with the politics of difference and with the representation and/or expression of alternative viewpoints in European films / in films made in Europe.

Abstracts are invited on topics related to Multivoicedness in European Cinema, including but not limited to:

  • Multivoicedness in national and transnational European cinemas
  • Peripheries, borders, and grey areas: falling between the cracks, speaking from the margins
  • Ethics and/or aesthetics of alternative voices
  • Audiodescription, subtitling and dubbing of multivoiced films
  • Cultural and market negotiations: translating cultures, crossing borders
  • Participation, dissent, resistance: audiences, politics, and public discourse
  • Alternative European cinemas and the global market
  • Other voices: niche markets, new forms of consumption
  • Deterritorialising identities, becoming migrant/minoritarian
  • Polyglot cinema: speaking from multiple subject positions
  • Genders and genres: decentering and in-betweennes
  • Alternative film festivals and other cinemas
  • Speaking in tongues: the audiences of multivoiced films
  • Queering European cinema
  • Nonfiction and commitment: documenting the silenced subject
  • Speaking for oneself: multiple forms of first-person filmmaking
  • Transnational, cosmopolitan, global: what European cinema
  • A continent in motion: multiple commitments, divided belonging
  • The New Europeans in films / making films
  • Margins of industrial practices, alternative forms of production, distribution and reception
  • Speaking parts: person, character, actor, star

Submission deadline: May 2nd 2017.
