Humanities in Transition

What comprises "visual and/or media studies" exactly?

"Visual media studies"-- if that is what we are going to call it -- sits in a deep well under layer upon layer of literary theory. "Visual and media studies" may as well be re-named "literary theory with a nod to the visual". So film studies, it appears, has fallen back as literature, culture, visuality and/or media have ensconced it entirely, and we forget to ask why.

Essays, Reviews, and All Other Film-Related Content Invited for "Cinematic Codes Review," a New Journal's First Issues: Open

full name / name of organization: 
Anaphora Literary Press

Anaphora Literary Press plans to start its second journal, dedicated to film and television studies, "Cinematic Codes Review." Its "Pennsylvania Literary Journal" (PLJ) has been in print since 2009, and it is starting to be too thick for its standard $10 cover price. By splitting it into two journals, one for literature and the second for film, both should become more focused. The first couple of issues are particularly important, and hopefully writers will submit essays, film reviews, or any other film related content to fill the pages with content that will be beneficial to film scholars, practitioners and knowledgeable fans. Essays can be about absurdist independent films or about the latest blockbuster.
