Call for Papers: “Transitive Justice. Creating Norms and System Change”, 7-8 July, 2017


6th CGS Interdisciplinary Conference

“Transitive Justice. Creating Norms and System Change”

7-8 July 2017, Toruń (Poland)

Changes develop equally innovative and destructive potential. Transformation processes can be interpreted as progress, modernization and advancement, but as well as decline, degeneration and disaster. The deconstruction of acknowledged normality are always moments of great social intensity, which need collective commentary and classification in terms of remembrance culture. The elites perceive the function of mediator between social event and its interpretation in the sense of “positivity of discourse” (Foucalt).

Call for Papers: Canada 150 Filmed, 22-23 April, 2017


8th  International conference organised by SACS and the Faculty of Philology of the University of Belgrade


22 – 23 April 2017

Call for Papers

James Cameron, a widely acclaimed contemporary Canadian film director, defines the crux of the filmmaking business in a nutshell: “I’m a storyteller; that’s what exploration really is all about. Going to places where others haven’t been and returning to tell a story they haven’t heard before” (USA Today, May 24, 2013).

As if to confirm this view, on 29th April 2014, the first public celebration of National Canadian Film Day was organized, including widely popular screenings of Canadian films, panel discussions hosted by recognized Canadian filmmakers and numerous debates about Canadian films across the country. Due to a significant print and media coverage and even the recognition in the House of Commons, this inaugural event instantly became a huge success. From this day onwards, National Canadian Film Day has become an annual event held all across Canada with the main purpose of celebrating Canada through Canadian film. The organizers of this national event state that way back in the past it was the railroad that tied Canadians all together, whereas in the 21st century another kind of cohesive track is needed –film!

Inspired by the recent public recognition of film in Canada, the Association for Canadian Studies in Serbia (SACS) and the Faculty of Philology of the University of Belgrade are pleased to announce the 8th International Conference hosted by the Faculty of Philology. Canada Filmed will be held in Belgrade, Serbia, 22-23 April 2017. The goal of the conference is to mark Canada‘s 150th anniversary by celebrating Canadian film.

It is relevant to note that the title of the conference primarily refers but is not limited to films created in Canada and directed by Canadian directors. Any examples of films testifying to Canadian experience and made outside Canada by non-Canadian filmmakers are extremely welcome.

We are pleased to announce that our confirmed plenary speaker is Janice Kulyk Keefer, a renowned Canadian novelist, poet and critic. She was short-listed for a Governor General’s Literary Award in 1987 and 1996. In 1999, she received the Marian Engel Award for a female Canadian writer in mid-career; in 2008, she was awarded the Kobzar Literary Award. Keefer taught literature and theatre in the graduate studies department at the University of Guelph, where she is now Professor Emerita.

Papers to be presented in either English or French are warmly invited from all disciplines as well as from multidisciplinary perspectives. In the general context of film, the Conference would like to achieve a clearer picture of contemporary Canada and its modern sensibility represented through this artistic medium.

The following suggestions for topics move from the very broad to the more particular and circumscribed, but of course in no way do they exhaust the multitude of possibilities:

  • Canada150 on film (changes, achievements, challenges, goals)
  • social issues (abortion, divorce, gambling, gay marriage, prostitution, marijuana and hard drugs)
  • problems facing the Aboriginal People of Canada (Child Welfare Programs, Cases of Missing Aboriginal Women, destiny of native lands, history of residential schools, mythology)
  • Multiculturalism and Ideology of democracy and equality in education, arts, sports
  • Economy, globalisation and geopolitics: challenges and perspectives
  • Class, race, gender, age, minority differences in the context of ethnic and cultural diversity
  • Canada: current political challenges (temporary Foreign Workers, healthy environment, identity politics)
  • Canadian literature on film: adaptations, influences, developments, trends
  • Canada in visual arts: theatre, photography, video, architecture, drawing, painting, performing arts, conceptual art.

Contributions may come from the fields of film studies, sociology, history, literature, psychology, economics, linguistics, geography, arts, architecture, social sciences, philosophy, journalism etc.

Please send the proposals to Vesna Lopičić:

Deadline for submissions: January 27th, 2017.

Please submit your theme, a 200-word abstract, your affiliation and a five-line CV. Please download the registration form here: registration-form.

We look forward to receiving your accounts of Canada Filmed stories and to an exciting program.

Conference Announcement: The 10th International Critical Management Studies (CMS) Conference – CMS 2017


July 3 – 5, Britannia Adelphi Hotel, Liverpool, UK

***Call for Papers open***

This conference builds on the traditions of recent CMS conferences by aiming to engage scholarly thinking and analysis as well as provocations leading to proposed action. CMS explores alternatives to the ubiquity of neoliberal market managerialism as a dominant frame in business education and as a pre-supposed framing of other social sciences. Such alternatives could be understood in practical terms of specific organisational forms and practices, or theoretical developments including in feminism, anarchism, communism, localism, fraternalism, green thinking and the implications of advances in neuro-science, exaptative innovation, interoperability and big data-driven theoretical opportunism among other re-framings. Some of these  may inspire the generation of new forms of resistance to neoliberalism or indeed any other hegemonic discourse that presumes there can be ‘one best way’ of doing things or indeed one preferred mode of pedagogy.
