CFP: FALL 2017 EDITION OF GLOSSOLALIA
Glossolalia, Yale Divinity School’s peer-reviewed graduate journal, is pleased to announce its call for papers for inclusion in the Fall 2017 edition, on the theme of “Confusion.”
Described by Siegfried Kracauer as one of the outstanding film directors of the post-World War I era, Paul Leni (1885-1929) is a significant yet overlooked figure in the German and US cinemas of the silent period. A frequent collaborator with stage director Max Reinhardt, Leni worked as an art designer for some of the most prominent German directors of the time before coming into his own as a director. Creating both avant-garde and commercial films in Germany, Leni quickly became known for his captivatingly macabre productions. Critics and audiences alike praised these films, which were marked by elaborate set designs, innovative use of light and shadow, and adept storytelling abilities.
