CALL FOR PAPERS

COLLECTION OF ESSAYS ON HANIF KUREISHI

Contributors are sought for a collection of original essays on Hanif
Kureishi's writing and filmmaking. The deadline for 500-word abstracts is
10th November 2003. It is intended that the volume should explore each of
the genres within which Kureishi works (novels, plays, screenplays, films,
short stories, essays and music criticism). I am particularly interested
in receiving contributions that take new approaches to his best-known
works and that explore facets of his oeuvre that have, as yet, received
little critical scrutiny.

Journal issue

The musical score, dialogue, and sounds of contemporary screen based
products of the past ten years have addressed a far more aurally
aware spectator, as demonstrated by the increasing complexities of
style and construction of the sound track. What might be some of the
methodological approaches that can account for the direction of the
spectatorial eye via the ear?

Defining the Americas: Media Within/Across Borders

The history of the American continents has long been one of establishing and
crossing borders. From pre-colonial times to the present, people and
cultures define and redefine themselves and their borders, especially in

national or other boundaries.
