Dear colleagues,

 

We invite you to contribute to a monograph on European Cinema in the 21st Century as outlined in the CFP below, which is intended for a – currently under-served – undergraduate and early postgraduate market. Abstracts and author biographies are due by the 31st of December, while the full book chapters (6000 words) are expected by the end of August 2018. We are aiming to publish this volume with Palgrave Macmillan, one of the leading academic publishers, which has already expressed a provisional interest in this monograph.  We are looking forward to reading your fascinating proposals.

 

Best wishes,
