CFP: The Films of Joseph H. Lewis

Few filmmakers created as unique a body of work in the United States as Joseph H. Lewis. All too
little has been published on his work, especially on films other than Gun Crazy (1950).

We are currently soliciting abstracts of 150-200 words for essays to be included in a proposed
anthology on Lewis’s work. Essays may focus on individual films or themes/topics that pervade
several films.

Essays included in the anthology will be of approximately 6,000 to 8,000 words, referenced in
MLA endnote style. One scholarly press has already committed to publishing this work, though
we are currently exploring various options.

This interdisciplinary session planned for Renaissance Society of America
2009 invites papers that link visual and verbal elements in specific
texts to broader concerns in 16th-century print culture. In 16th-century
literary texts in England and on the continent, how do visual and verbal
elements work together in the new medium to create new aesthetics and
modes of meaning? How do printers, artists, authors, and translators
collaborate to deploy the new technology in visual and verbal forms? How
does a new means of production reshape the interaction of the visual and
verbal? We welcome other such questions and the treatment of specific
subjects (e.g. the use of woodcuts, engravings, printers’ devices,

modernist literature. Questions to consider are:

Why is this turn needed now?
