The last ten years have seen a resurgence of critical interest in the
interpenetrations of modernism and cinema, with the publication of Laura
Marcus’s The Tenth Muse (2007), Susan McCabe’s Cinematic Modernism (2005),
David Trotter’s Cinema and Modernism (2007), and a collection of essays
from the modernist journal Close Up (1998). This criticism has produced new
readings of modernist writing about film and collaborations with
filmmakers. At the same time, it has also resurrected a provocative and
highly contested argument: that some modernist literature functions “like”
film, and is thematically, formally, or structurally “cinematic.” Critics

Contemporary Legend
The Journal of the International Society of Contemporary Legend Research

Proposed Special Issue: “Contemporary Ghostlore”

Contemporary Legend, the annual journal of the International Society for
Contemporary Legend Research, aims to promote and encourage research, and
to provide a forum for those working in this vibrant area of traditional
narrative scholarship. Within this context the term 'legend' is
interpreted in its broadest sense as including Sagen, dites, popular
rumors, sayings and beliefs as well as narrative.
Similarly, 'contemporary' refers not only to so-called 'modern urban
legends' but also to legends in active circulation in a given community.

Opening any of the leading journals in the past year, one might not be
surprised to find the prefix "queer" coupled with such topics as
(anti)colonialism, temporality, public space, rage, utopia, antisociality,
revolutionary sociality, optimism, trauma, capital, democracy,
(anti)futurity, disability, pop culture, aesthetics, cosmopolitanism,
ruralism, love, friendship, intimacy . . . and the list could go on. But
