Dear All, if you have missed the call for papers earlier but you would not like to miss the opportunity to participate in this conference, we would like to announce that we can still accept submissions until the 15th of July:

INTERMEDIALITY NOW: REMAPPING IN-BETWEENNESS
international film and media studies conference organized by the Sapientia University Cluj (RO), 19-20 October 2018.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Connected to our new exploratory research project “Rethinking Intermediality in Contemporary Cinema: Changing Forms of In-Betweenness” funded by the UEFISCDI, and following up on the topics of our previous conferences, we would like to bring into focus the idea of “in-betweenness” set in a wider context of contemporary visual culture, and to re-evaluate its relevance regarding the state of the art in researches on intermediality. 
Digital media have not only prompted a reassessment of the relationship of the “old” and the “new” through their extraordinary capacity for absorption and remediation but have literally flooded our life with their ubiquity and sheer excess. The technological convergences of devices producing and displaying media, the fusions, expansions, relocations taking place have effectively challenged our perception of media differences. If the idea of intermediality is based on the assumption of a productive interaction of media, then there should be no more pressing issue regarding intermediality studies today than fine-tuning its core concept of in-betweenness to the phenomena of the so called post-media age, in the spirit of Raymond Bellour’s concept of l’entre-images (i.e. images-in-between/inter-images), in which novel forms are continuously “hollowed out from within surrounded by the new forces that irrigate it” (2012: 21). On the other hand, however, as recent theoretical approaches imply by viewing media products embedded in their palpable, real-life environment (i.e. in the dispositifs we experience them, in their phenomenology that links them to our bodies, or in their concrete, historical and socio-political context), the relevance of intermediality is not limited to what happens to media, but it extends, even more importantly, to what happens through the in-betweenness of media and what is the agency of in-betweenness in our contemporary multimedia environment. Besides the analysis of new configurations, we should also examine what is inscribed and communicated through various intermedia relations and what new types of passages are established in-between art and life, in-between the emotional, spiritual and the material, as well as the imaginary and the real, and so on.
We invite proposals to unravel the complex new relationships that define our contemporary visual culture, and to map new, relevant areas of in-betweenness that may enrich our knowledge of intermediality today.

We suggest the following tracks along which individual topics (theoretical presentations or case studies) may be proposed: 

• Classical cinema vs. expanded cinema in the digital age, cinema and other forms of moving images
• The cinematic, the photographic, the theatrical, the painterly as transversal concepts (applicable “outside” their media boundaries) in the aesthetic of contemporary art and media 
• L-entre images (inter-images) today: new passages between the visual arts in the digital age
• In-between the real and the intermedial, the immediate and the hypermediated, bodies and media, the sensual and the abstract
• Intermedial strategies in the aesthetic or the curating practices of contemporary art and media, the politics of intermediality, the “messages” of in-betweenness
• New technologies and experiences of in-betweenness: e.g. 3D, VR cinema, computer games
• “In-betweenness” in between theories: concepts of liminality articulated/applied through theories of intermediality, media convergence, transmediality, philosophy, media archaeology and ecology, intersections of media and cultural studies etc.

Confirmed keynote speakers:

MARTINE BEUGNET, Professor in Visual Studies at the Paris Diderot University. Her current research interests include: cinema and video art (phenomenology, aesthetics, reception), forms and practices of the moving image in the era of the digital, and the relationship between the arts. She is the author of Claire Denis (2004); Proust at the Movies (with Marion Schmid, 2005); Cinema and Sensation: French Film and the Art of Transgression (2007).  Her latest books are on the aesthetic of the blur in cinema: Indefinite Visions: Cinema and the Attractions of Uncertainty (with A. Cameron and A. Fetveit, 2017) and L’attrait du flou (The Attraction of the Blur, 2017).

THOMAS ELSAESSER, Professor Emeritus of the University of Amsterdam and Visiting Professor at Columbia University. Besides publishing over 200 essays in journals and collections, he has authored, edited and co-edited some 20 volumes on film history, film theory, media archaeology and new media. Among his recent books as author are: (with Malte Hagener) Film Theory – An Introduction through the Senses (2010) and Film History as Media Archaeology (2016). He is currently completing a book on European Cinema and Continental Thought: Film as Thought Experiment (2018). He is also writer-director of the documentary film, The Sun Island (2017) which premiered at the Kassel Documentary Festival in November 2017. The conference will also include a screening of this film. 

Plenary speakers:

LARS ELLESTRÖM, Professor at the Department of Film and Literature, Linnaeus University, Sweden. He is the head of the Linnaeus University Centre for Intermedial and Multimodal Studies (IMS) and chairs the board of the International Society for Intermedial Studies (ISIS).

LÚCIA NAGIB, Professor of Film, Director of the Centre for Film Aesthetics and Cultures, University of Reading, UK. She is the leader of the AHRC-FAPESP funded project, 'Towards an Intermedial History of Brazilian Cinema: Exploring Intermediality as a Historiographic Method' which focuses on cinema's nature as a mixture of arts and media in order to produce the first, groundbreaking intermedial history of Brazilian cinema.

JOACHIM PAECH, Professor Emeritus University of Konstanz (Germany) whose books and articles, the edited collections of essays are among the most influential writings on intermediality of film.

And we are proud to present an exclusive video lecture by: RAYMOND BELLOUR, the renowned French philosopher, theorist of film and interart relations, whose concept of "in-betweenness" inspired this conference.
