Call for papers:

CineAction #63, edited by Richard Lippe & Florence Jacobowitz

"1950s Aesthetics: Film in Transition; Minelli Centenary"

The 1950's was a significant decade in the history of the cinema; it marked the
end of classical Hollywood and the beginning of a cinema that addressed the
contemporary culture and post-war social changes. The decade saw important changes
occurring in the European cinema and a worldwide crossover of influences. Within
this context, we are celebrating the cinema of Vincente MInnelli who, working within
the tradtions of classical Hollywood, brought a modernist aesthetic and cosmopolitan
sensibility to his films.

Submission deadline: November 15, 2003.

Janus Head: Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature,

http://www.janushead.org

OPEN ISSUE

Guidelines for Submissions

Janus Head follows APA guidelines for its review process (peer
review).

In general, Janus Head editors and reviewers look for works which
speak to the Janus Head attitude of "respect and openness to the
various manifestations of truth in human experience and the
fostering of understanding through meditative thinking, narrative
structure, and poetic imagination."

Deadline for submissions: October 31, 2003.

NB: Deadline Extension

Volume 14, Special Issue: Disciplines and Disciplinarity

Critical Matrix: The Princeton Journal of Women, Gender and Culture, is
seeking original submissions for an issue dedicated to the problems and
potential of disciplines and disciplinarity in the humanities. Within
and between departments of study, it has become increasingly difficult
to specify respective objects of investigation, critical methodologies,
and most importantly, the intellectual stakes and precise nature of the
work being done. English, French, German, rhetoric, and architecture-to
name just a few-have begun to stand in as loose designators of cultural,
geopolitical, ethical, or theoretical orientations.

visual theory that accommodate the multivalence of women's identities and
experiences. We are interested in essays that revise binary models of
sexual difference by considering the coextensivity of gender and the myriad

CFP: James Joyce (ASAP; collection)

Helen Thompson

I'm in need of an essay on James Joyce for a collection tentatively
titled:

Having Our Own Field Day: Essays on the Irish Canon

The collection is a critical evaluation of the Irish canon and offers
new innovative readings of canonical figures as well as readings of
those marginalized by the Field Day Anthology.

I'm looking for a fresh reading of Joyce that perhaps reimagines his
place in the canon (through postmodern, postcolonial or through another
theoretical lens), reevaluates his influence in Irish or other national
literatures, or reads his work against the grain of a current critical
consensus.

Please send a detailed proposal and cv to me asap.
