Film Studies Association of Canada 2016: Call for Expressions of Interest (EOI)
Panel Abstract:  Ecocinema and Ecocritical Film Theory

This panel invites papers that undertake analysis of the assumptions, approaches, and philosophical orientations that presently characterize eco-critical labours in film studies. These analyses need not be purely theoretical or formally explicit.  Critiques could be illuminatingly staged during examination of films and other moving-image texts.  What approaches primarily obtain in this area? What theories of agency, audience, or activism?  What theories best negotiate the intersection of film and materiality? Of what would an eco-reading consist if aimed at cinema unconcerned with the environment?  What techniques from other disciplines may be productively brought to bear?


Please submit proposals to no later than Dec. 4, although general inquiries are welcome at any time. Chosen candidates will be notified by Dec. 8.

Mario Trono, Associate Professor

Department of English, Mount Royal University
