CFP: Oprah Anthology (no deadline noted; collection)

Wednesday, July 30, 2003 - 10:26pm

Revised call: Oprah Anthology

We are soliciting papers for an academic anthology on the phenomenon of
Oprah. It is undeniable that Oprah Winfrey has transcended the iconic
cult of celebrity to become a Western cultural force of the late-twentieth
and early twenty-first centuries. As her show nears its much anticipated
end — though its endless reproduction in syndication seems inevitable — it
seems appropriate to produce an anthology that evaluates the multifaceted
influences and implications of Oprah.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

CineAction #63, edited by Richard Lippe & Florence Jacobowitz

"1950s Aesthetics: Film in Transition; Minelli Centenary"

The 1950's was a significant decade in the history of the cinema; it marked the
end of classical Hollywood and the beginning of a cinema that addressed the
contemporary culture and post-war social changes. The decade saw important changes
occurring in the European cinema and a worldwide crossover of influences. Within
this context, we are celebrating the cinema of Vincente MInnelli who, working within
the tradtions of classical Hollywood, brought a modernist aesthetic and cosmopolitan
sensibility to his films.

Submission deadline: November 15, 2003.
