communication +1 invites submissions for its upcoming issue, Communication and New Materialism.
Given the recent emergence of new perspectives in critical theories, such as Object-Oriented Ontology, Speculative Realism, Alien Phenomenology, Flat Ontology, and associated research programs, this issue seeks to explore the implications of these perspectives for the study of communication and media. We use the term, New Materialism, broadly to include all the aforementioned as well as other related perspectives in the hope to be as inclusive as possible and to encourage diverse voices and analytic angles that focus on the forms and processes of mediation across different fields. We are particularly interested in works that engage with the theoretical underpinnings of New Materialism to challenge the text-centered approaches in media and communication studies.
The Projector: An Electronic Journal on Film, Media, and Culture is seeking research essays for an issue on food, film, and media/consumer culture.
While there are a collection of food films that have acquired canonical status, e.g., Babette’s Feast, Tampopo, Big Night, foodways play an integral role in scores of films and media-related consumer practices that have not been considered in the ongoing research. The journal is looking for essays that analyze and contextualize representations that are not covered extensively in volumes such as Reel Food, ed. Anne Bower, Food, Film, and Culture, by James Keller, or Food in the Movies, by Steve Zimmerman and Ken Weiss. It is interested in research that examines food (and film) practices that surround and run parallel to the consumption of contemporary media.
University of Reading: Wednesday 18 – Friday 20 September 2013
The culminating conference arising from the AHRC ‘Spaces of Television’ project will be held at the University of Reading from Wednesday 18th to Friday 20th September, 2013. Proposals are invited for papers and/or panels on the theme of ‘Spaces of Television: Production, Site and Style’. The project is about television fiction produced in the UK from 1955-94. It analyses how the material spaces of production (in TV studios and on location) conditioned the aesthetic forms of programmes. We are interested in how fictional spaces represented on the screen across a range of drama during this period negotiated the opportunities and constraints of studio and exterior space, film and video technologies, and live-ness and recording.
