Call for Papers: ReFocus: The Films of Lisandro Alonso

Deadline: July 1, 2017

 

Since his emergence as part of the New Argentine Cinema, Lisandro Alonso has shown himself to be one of world cinema’s most original cinematic voices. His work has pursued a formal rigor, a narrative austerity, and an impulse towards ethnography that marks it as decidedly anti-commercial. At the same time, his tales of solitary men moving through landscapes have found a highly favorable reception among international festival audiences.

In the last two decades, scholarly attention to transmedia storytelling (TS) has increased dramatically. Approaches to the topic vary widely, ranging from a focus on the effects of TS on narratives and texts (Harvey, Mittell); explorations of paratexts, metatexts, intertexts, and pretexts (Gray, Clarke); and the increase in fan participation and agency with regard to narrative agency since the transmedia turn (Jenkins, Geraghty, Hills). More recently, scholars such as Raúl Rodríguez-Ferrándiz have returned to what might be considered the beginning, looking to Gerard Genette’s discussion of paratexts and building on Genette’s print-bound ideas with transmediated frames.

LITERARY ATMOSPHERICS

A special theme section to be published in the open-access journal Literary Geographies (literarygeographies.net):

 

I'm seeking abstracts focusing on literary engagements with material atmospheres. Essays may address some of these questions:

 

-how does literature address the production, maintenance, and differential breathability of multiple and shifting atmospheres across local and transnational scales?

 

ReFocus: The Films of Ousmane Sembène

Senegalese Ousmane Sembène was one of the most important African artists of the 20th century as a writer and a film director. Yet there are only a handful of studies on his cinematic body of work. They usually adopt the same structure: the analysis of his films in chronological order. This essay collection tackles his work and legacy in a deeper way. Sembène articulated his observations in fiction films instead of documentaries, embracing the African tradition of telling and transmitting stories that creatively reflect the circumstances of a people. His films have strengthened the cause of liberation from colonial domination and other forms of oppression.

Horror Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 15, 2017

With the current spate of contemporary high-budget properties that have sought to engage and adapt online horror content, increasing attention has been turned to communities of amateur critics, writers, illustrators, and fans that work to create horror in digital space. Their influence has been felt in a variety of media, from the television series Channel Zero and Supernatural, to the film The Tall Man and video games like Slender and SCP: Containment Breach. Fora in Something Awful, “r/nosleep”, and the SCP Foundation represent attempts by massive communities to create negotiated fictions, imagining mythic spaces and enduring, horrific creatures.

updated: 
Monday, April 3, 2017 - 2:07pm
The Projector: A Journal on Film, Media, and Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2017

     The Projector is developing a special (potentially double) issue reinvestigating art house exhibition. We are interested in research that contributes to the growing body of work on art house exhibition, particularly in relation to the changing modes of art house distribution and exhibition in the era of media convergence.

      This special issue looks at the changing modes of exhibition at art house theatres by examining their audiences, marketing strategies, programming, fundraising, technologies and industrial practices.

Approaches to this topic may include:

  • Case studies of individual art house theatres

  • Historical art house theatres and their marketing strategies and audiences
