Intellect is pleased to be attending the European Network for Cinema and Media Studies conference in Milan this year. Intellect has attended for the past few years and has always found the event to be a great opportunity to connect with existing and potential authors.

Intellect is excited to be one of the main sponsors of the forthcoming Fashion in Fiction Conference
Fashion in Fiction: Style Stories and Transglobal Narratives 2014 will focus on the material and non-material forms of fashion for a range of professional, commercial, historical, social, cultural and creative purposes. The conference will be international and cross-cultural in order to highlight the largely transglobal, transcultural multiple flows of fashion discourse and to broaden the analysis of fashion beyond a purely traditional Western frame of analysis.

Call for papers
JAWS: Journal of Arts Writing by Students is the first UK journal of academic work for and by art students, serving as a platform for peer to peer engagement and for research currently taking place within institutions as part of post and undergraduate study. The journal seeks submissions from current students in the arts across the disciplines (including fine art, research, performance, textiles, graphics and illustration) and those within their first year of graduation. Predominately aimed at those studying at postgraduate level, JAWS is the first academic arts journal entirely produced by and dedicated to current students work. It works to open new lines of discourse and collaboration and seeks to promote early career researchers across a wider academic community, demonstrating the ability, dedication and professionalism of it’s students.
Focus on National Cinema, Auteurism, and Genre

Read the interviews with Katherine Larson and Lynn Zubernis about their own fandom and what compelled them to edit their new book Fan Phenomena: Supernatural.
We started out as fans of the series and then began examining what was happening to us, in part because our reaction to the show was so visceral and compelling – really like nothing we’d ever encountered before. This of course led to research – it’s what we do as academics – and the discovery of an entire field of study. First we were hooked on the show and then we were hooked on the field itself. After that there was no looking back. And, after researching the Supernatural fandom for several years and from all perspectives (that of the fan, the producer and the academics) and producing two other books on the fandom, it seemed a natural fit to edit this volume. It was also a place where we could allow some of those other voices – fan and producer – to exist side by side with the more academic explorations of the series.

Re-Imagining the City examines how contemporary processes of globalization are transforming cultural experience and production in urban spaces. It maps how cultural productions in art, architecture, and communications media are contributing to the re-imagining of place and identity through events, artifacts, and attitudes. This book recasts how we understand cities, how knowledge can be formed, framed, and transferred through cultural production and how that knowledge is mediated through the construction of aesthetic meaning and value.
