Call for Papers
Panel Topic: Cinematic Representation of Immigration, Spaces and Identities
41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 7-11, 2010
Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure
Panel description: The representation of immigration and immigrants through films is very often linked to the space in which they choose to live. How could we define the dynamic between the notions of immigration, spaces and identities through movies in today’s cinema from different countries? How do immigration spaces foster the immigrants that live in them? How do these spaces affect their identity? Do immigrants also reshape the place where they have found asylum? This is the main frame of analysis that this panel will explore. Send abstracts to Carole Salmon Carole_Salmon@uml.edu and Maria Matz Maria_Matz@uml.edu
Deadline: September 30, 2009
Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee)
