>
>Call for Papers
>Midwest Modern Language Association - Nov 10-13, Milwaukee, WI
>
>Papers are requested that deal with representations of trauma in film.  While
>trauma theory has become increasingly popular in the last decade or so in
>terms of literature, there is still relatively little work done on trauma as
>represented (or not represented) in film.  How does film - as distinct from
>other art forms - address the difficulties of representing what has been
>called unrepresentable?  How do mise-en-scene, editing, music/sound effects,
>cinematography, etc. affect the possibilities for representing traumatic
>material, not simply on the level of content but also the rhythms, gaps,
>tensions of trauma on a structural level.
>
>Please send abstracts of approximately 250 words to [log in to unmask] by
>April 20.
>
>Thanks
>Laura Beadling
