> Paper proposals are sought for the following panel to be submitted for 
> consideration to the SCMS 2013-14 Program Committee:
> WORKING TITLE: African "Global South" Cinema
> African "Global South" Cinema
> How can we identify African Global South cinema in an age of 
> globalization and transnational cinema? "Nollywood" vs. FESPACO films; 
> video films vs. auteur or Independent films; world cinema as regional, 
> transnational, local or global cinema: are all vexed terms. How can we 
> negotiate around such loaded terms when approaching African cinemas?
> This panel will attempt to distinguish between African films that 
> employ an address that conveys immediacy to a local audience and those 
> that are more generally categorized as destined for the world cinema 
> circuit. Spatial distinctions between distant and close enable us to 
> situate African cinema along the global-local divide, while placing 
> the binary under erasure.
> Please e-mail a 250-300-word abstract, along with a brief biographical 
> statement and a 5-entry bibliography, by August 18 to:
