The Film III Section of the Midwest Modern Language Association (MMLA) is accepting proposals for papers on any aspect of Global Cinema. The 57th MMLA Conference will take place at the Hyatt Regency in Columbus, OH on November 12-14, 2015. By global cinemas we are referring to films made outside of the U.S./Hollywood context. Papers can be related to the conference's informal theme of “Arts and Sciences”, but other themes are certainly welcome. We are interested in sparking broad discussions about the state of global cinema in the twenty-first century, though historical perspectives are welcome as well. Possible questions to trigger ideas include: Is the existing cultural and cinematographical intermediality between (inter)national cinemas giving way to a new definition of global film? Are adaptations, remakes, transfers, and/or metaphor ways of rearranging the cultural and cinematic traditions?
