Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities - special issue

Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities (Texas A & M University-Commerce) welcomes original manuscript submissions for a special issue on cinema distribution and exhibition.

The classic Hollywood studio model had three main strings: production, distribution and exhibition. Less print space has been devoted to scholarship on the latter two, which remain essential to the story of cinema in the United States and the rest of the world. Post Script aims to address this imbalance with a special issue focusing on the business of film distribution and the art of cinema exhibition. Papers, essays, interviews, reviews and other articles on any area of cinema distribution or exhibition are welcome.

short essays: literature, justice, law, teaching and social change

Changing Lives Through Literature

Changing Lives Through Literature is a nationally recognized alternative sentencing program for criminal offenders founded in 1991 on the power of literature to transform lives. CLTL sentences criminal offenders to a series of literature seminars instead of traditional probation. Studies have confirmed that program graduates are half as likely to commit additional crimes than their counterparts in the justice system.

agency

agency, an online, peer-reviewed and interdisciplinary journal, invites submissions for its inaugural issue, a special issue on Obama, Race, and Empire. The election of Barack Obama as President of the United States in November 2008 was hailed by many as a transformative moment in the history of race relations within the United States, and the USA's relationship with the global community. Yet, Obama's first year as President has resulted in frustration for many of his supporters, as policy goals remain goals not achievements and the USA continues to be seen by many as oppressive and imperialist.

agency, an online, peer-reviewed and interdisciplinary journal, invites submissions for a special issue on Immigration and Visual Culture. Technologies such as photography and film have played a crucial role in representing, constructing, and reifying the immigrant subject and immigrant experiences. Recent technological innovations, from YouTube and social networking sites to DVD and video downloading to surveillance technologies, have changed the ways in which immigrant subjectivities and experiences are constructed and disseminated.

While we have many accounts of reading and the emerging middle class in eighteenth-century England, our understanding of literacy for domestic servants is less clear. There is evidence that a range of men and women servants read for pleasure and self-improvement. Ironically, as the number of domestic servants who were able to read grew steadily, writers became aware of how the text can affect moral character.
