PLEASE POST: Caucus Coordinating Committee Calls for Papers SCS Annual Conference, April 15-18, 1999, West Palm Beach, FL 1) "Scholarly Organizations and the Practice of Politics" Following changes and developments in the global social arena, scholarly organizations such as SCS, MLA, and TDC, among others, began to take public stands on issues of import to their constituencies, a move which has been the source of much debate and has led to a rethinking of the functions and limits of scholarly organizations in general. This workshop will address the position of SCS vis-a-vis this process: what is or should be its relationship to the public sphere, political practice and society at large? 10 minute position papers please. Organized by the Caucus Coordinating Committee Contacts: Terri Ginsberg (Workshop Chair) <[log in to unmask]> AND Ana Lopez <[log in to unmask]> 2) "Intersections of Race, Class, Ethnicity, Gender, and Sexuality in the Film Studies Classroom" This panel poses the question of how discourses of race, class, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality are incorporated into the film studies classroom and, furthermore, how their historical, conceptual, and quotidian intersections are foregrounded, analyzed, and critiqued. Papers focusing on particular classroom situations and experiences as well as general pedagogical theories and methodologies are encouraged. Organized by the Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender Caucus, with the Caucus Coordinating Committee Contacts: T. Osa Hidalgo <[log in to unmask]> AND Alexander M. Doty <[log in to unmask]> 3) "To Be Real: Featuring Under-Documented Communities" This panel explores the intersection of documentary and feature film discourses in narratives about marginalized communities (queer subcultures, migrant workers, ethnic enclaves, etc.). Dramatic films labor to be authentic and representative. Papers might examine dramatic fiction films, films that combine documentary and dramatic modes, dramatic films that borrow from or draw upon documentary aesthetics and vice versa, etc. Organized by the Caucus Coordinating Committee, with APAC. Contact: Peter X Feng <[log in to unmask]> All proposals are due by September 1, 1998. ---- Screen-L is sponsored by the Telecommunication & Film Dept., the University of Alabama.
