[ecrea] Call For Papers: Asian Cinema Studies Society Conference

Tue Nov 13 16:49:21 GMT 2018


Call For Papers: Asian Cinema Studies Society Conference, June 2019

**Deadline for submission of proposals is 10 December 2018.
Notifications of acceptance
will be sent out by early February 2019.

Papers and panel proposals are invited for the 13th Asian Cinema Studies Society
Conference: The Environments of Asian Cinemas. With the support of the
Faculty of Fine
Arts, Media & Creative Industries at LASALLE College of the Arts,
in conjunction with the
Asian Cinema Studies Society, the conference is planned for 24–26 June
2019, at LASALLE
College of the Arts, Singapore.

Participants are invited to present papers on any aspect of Asian
cinema, though proposals
engaging with the conference theme are encouraged. One key aim here is
to seek ways in
which Asian cinema studies might engage with the current moment of
global environmental
crisis. At the same time, however, the conference theme of
‘environments’ is being
conceptualized in a broader sense, encompassing not only the material
environments of
ecocriticism, but also Asian cinema’s represented environments and its
various material,
cultural and regulatory environments of production, distribution,
exhibition and reception.

Possible topics may include, but are by no means limited to, the
following areas:

Ecocriticism and Asian cinemas
Animal studies and/or plant studies approaches to Asian cinemas
Environment and representation in Asian film and media
Asian cinema and the city
Asian cinema and the rural
Environmental issues in Asian documentary
Apocalyptic themes in Asian film
Ecological implications of Asian film production and/or exhibition
New technological contexts of Asian film and media
Changing regulatory frameworks of Asian film and media
Transnational influences on Asian film production/Asian film business
Globalization and Asian cinemas
Regional dynamics of Asian cinemas
Cultural issues in Asian film
Censorship issues in Asian film

Language: English

For individual paper proposals, send a 200–300 word abstract and be
certain to include the
title, author name(s), institutional affiliation, mailing address and
e-mail contacts, as well as a
brief (50–100 word) biography of the contributor. For pre-constituted
panel proposals (of
three to four papers), be certain to provide a brief description (100
words) of the overall panel
along with the individual abstracts and contributor information.
Sessions will be 90 minutes
in duration, and time limits will be strictly enforced.

There will be no conference registration fee per se, but all
participants must be members of
the Asian Cinema Studies Society, which requires an annual fee of £38.
The fee covers one year membership and one volume of two issues of
Asian Cinema, and gives access to the
society’s executive meeting at the conference.

Selected papers will be published in the peer-reviewed biannual Asian
Cinema. Published by
Intellect Books (UK), this seminal journal has long been the flagship
publication of the Asian
Cinema Studies Society.
