This special issue of Film Studies will focus on cinematic temporality or,
more broadly, film and time. Some contributors have already been confirmed,
but additional articles are required. The editor is seeking a wide range of
articles, some critical (i.e. dealing with the treatment of temporal aspects
in specific films or particular directors' work), and some conceptual (i.e.
addressing broader questions about film's temporal qualities).

Issue 15: Intimacy

In recent years, scholars from a broad range of disciplines have engaged the issue of intimacy. From these various efforts, at least one fact is clear: There is not one intimacy, but many. How do we describe these intimacies, and what complicates our descriptions? Intimacy is not simply synonymous with love, but it is different from friendship, and often quite different from sex. Or is it? Moreover, once we have discovered what intimacy is, where do we find it: in communities and nations, between or among friends, between or among lovers? How is intimacy negotiated and produced, maintained, or, often, lost?

UPDATE: Humor and Baseball (8/15/05; collection)

The original CFP for this collection had the wrong word count for submissions. The corrected CFP follows:

Shelves and shelves have been filled with scholarly attention to baseball in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.; likewise, shelves and shelves have been devoted to the study of humor (in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.). Yet, surprisingly little has been said about the relationship between the two.

Proposed is a collection of new essays on the relationship between humor and baseball (in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.). Topics might include, but certainly are not limited to:

CFP: Evil in the Films of M. Night Shyamalan (8/15/05; collection)

M. Night Shyamalan has emerged as a noteworthy American filmmaker -- he has even been compared to Hitchcock -- yet very little scholarly attention has been paid to his work.

As all of Shyamalan's films explore the encounter with, or the nature of evil, and as the scholarly examination of evil, ethics/morality, and religion has become a timely one, I am proposing a collection of new essays on evil and/in Shyamalan's films.

The working title for the collection is "'Those we don't speak of': Essays on Evil in the Films of M. Night Shyamalan".
