If you are conducting research using non-English sources in Summer or Fall 2015, please consider participating in a qualitative study entitled "The Information Seeking Strategies of Humanities Scholars using Resources in Languages other than English." The process involves two interviews and a research diary over a period of 2-3 weeks. Participants will receive an electronic copy of the completed dissertation and will be helping to further understanding of how this unique group of scholars overcome issues related to identifying and obtaining resources that are not in English.

I am putting together an anthology of new research on European film since 1990. The book is intended for classroom use in both contemporary European history and film courses. The work needs to be genuinely cross-disciplinary, emphasizing relationships between social change, popular political culture, and cinematic representation; and the language needs to be straightforward (i.e. jargon-free) and accessible to both advanced undergraduates and the general reading public.
In their 1999 essay “Deformance and Interpretation," Lisa Samuels and Jerome McGann propose deformative criticism against a rigid, theoretical, informative mode of reading in humanities. Deformance is an action, an imaginative, creative poiesis that does not necessarily aim to set a meaning of a text but reimagines it as a performance.
