CFP: Black Diasporic Cinema (Callaloo)
Callaloo has a CFP on Black Diasporic Cinema
Deadline: November 30, 2014.
Callaloo invites papers for a special issue on Black Diasporic Cinema (Black Latinidad, African, Caribbean, etc.) guest edited by Michael B. Gillespie (Ohio University) and Keith M. Harris (University of California-Riverside).
Race as a constitutive, cultural fiction has always been a consequential element of history, social life, and art practice. With this in mind, the editors seek inquiries of black diasporic cinema that frame this conceptual field with a concern for visuality, blackness, and the art of cinema. Motivated by an immediate investment in the relationship between cinema and the discourses of race and blackness, this issue focuses on distinct modalities of black diasporic cinema by examining the substantial ways that blackness compels an interdisciplinary regard for race as discourse, affect, performativity, and aesthetic practice.
