As we approach the 50-year anniversary of 1968, a high point of activism and protest around the world, we are interested in reflecting on and engaging with 1968’s legacy of activism as it influences theory and practice. While 1968 is often associated with the May protests in France, this time period saw various protests and radical action occurring at places around the world, including the Prague Spring in Czechoslovakia, student movements in Mexico, the Cultural Revolution in China, and anti-war protests and counter-culture movements in the USA. Many of these events still resonate in our contemporary sociopolitical atmospheres.

Scholarly Submissions

Indigenous identity is connected to place, perhaps rooted most strongly in the relationship between place and self rather than simply the location itself. In the chapter “A Better World Becoming: Placing Critical Indigenous Studies” appearing in Aileen Moreton’s essay collection Critical Indigenous Studies: Engagements in First World Locations, Daniel Heath Justice explains that, “Belonging is about being woven into the fabric of the land and its legacies, accepting the knowledge that your future is a shared future . . .” (26).

**REMINDER DEADLINE FRIDAY 8TH DECEMBER**

Unmade films are a burgeoning area of scholarly inquiry. The rise of the film archive, from the Michael Klinger Papers and Hammer Archive, to the John Boorman Papers and Stanley Kubrick Archive, all have unearthed a treasure trove of abandoned or halted projects, left unmade for a range of industrial, cultural and political contexts. This also extends to unreleased cinema, those projects that were abandoned in pre-production, cut short in production, or simply never distributed, or removed from circulation.
