The following mail came to me so I am forwarding it to the list.

I am looking for participants to join a panel on ?Critical East Asian 
Cinemas?. Over the past twenty years, there has been an increasing 
critical and academic appreciation of East Asian Cinemas as the latest 
successors to European New Cinemas. While the Fifth Generation of 
Chinese Cinema and the Korean New Wave are becoming more commercialized 
or Hollywood-like, there are directors like Koreeda Hirokazu, Tsai 
Ming-liang, Hong Sang-soo, and Jai Zhang-ke continuing to tackle 
difficult social issues, such as urban alienation, marginal sexualities 
and class exploitation. So far, we have papers on cinemas of Taiwan and 
China, and are looking for participants who can focus on cinemas of 
Japan and Korea. If interested, please contact Kaiman Chang at
