**[UPDATED DEADLINE]** EDITED VOLUME, CINEMA LIBERATION THEOLOGY

updated: 
Saturday, December 9, 2017 - 5:26pm
Anthony Ballas / University of Colorado at Denver
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 2, 2018

Edited Volume, Cinema Liberation Theology

 

I am looking for a few 4,000 - 5,000 word chapters on cinema and theology, leaning toward, yet not exhausted by, the tradition of liberation theology. The goal is to explore the capabilities of cinema in terms of liberation and divinity. 

 

This collection focuses on liberation narratives which are in some way related to or inspired by religious traditions/literatures/practices/discourses from around the world. The films and analyses need not be explicitly religious in content, but need only to be argued in the context of liberation with theology, spirituality, or divinity functioning as a loose guide.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 2, 2018

pacificREVIEW is currently hosting an open call for submissions for our 2018 edition, “States of La Frontera” – an interdisciplinary, intersectional collection of work that grapples with the concept and image of “borders” as existing in multiple contexts. “States of La Frontera” refers to the literal and figurative borderlands of space and identity: the physical, geographical, emotional, spiritual, and temporal boundaries and possibilities of being. We are interested in works that embrace and complicate life at the intersection – works that resist hegemony, generalization, and singularity.

Special Issue: Jane Austen after 200 Years

updated: 
Thursday, November 23, 2017 - 9:47pm
Spring Magazine on English Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 31, 2017

One of the original bestselling authors, Jane Austen (1775-1817) has successfully managed to bridge the gap between what is often perceived as the non-negotiable chasm between canonical and popular literature. Her works, two centuries after her demise, are, in fact without exaggeration, more popular now than in her own period. Once written off as an author who provides the readers with a limited perspective of the world — as her characters are seemingly unperturbed by political events, Austen shows unparalleled finesse in depicting the characters and setting using a “fine brush” to artistically explore and exploit her “two inches of ivory”. What is evident, debates regarding her subject matter notwithstanding, is that Austen’s popularity has not faded.

M/C: A Journal of Media and Culture Call for Papers for 'walking' issue

Why do we walk? Walking traverses boundaries of the physical, political, artistic, narrated, literary, and psychological, and can be deployed as a complex practice in an increasingly digitised world. In this issue, we examine the contemporary practices and representations of walking. We encourage work with an interest in the hybrid, the interdisciplinary, the intersectional; that looks to fields as diverse as feminist studies, life writing, nature writing, anthropology and fictocriticism.

We think walking can be an act, a response, a methodology, a transgression. Areas of investigation may include, but are not limited to:

REMINDER CFP ReFocus: The Films of Pablo Larraín

Thursday, November 23, 2017 - 9:43pm
Laura Hatry, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid

Thursday, November 30, 2017

One of the central figures in contemporary Chilean film, director Pablo Larraín (b. 1976), presents a harsh portrait of his country’s current reality and of its tortured history in a direct, sometimes surprising, and often controversial oeuvre, never demurring in the face of violence or painful truths about the past. His first feature film, Fuga (2006), which was poorly received by critics, focuses on a composer’s mental health issues; his striking trilogy about Chile’s recent history covers the Pinochet dictatorship in Tony Manero (2008), the last days of the Allende presidency in Post mortem (2010), and the democratic downfall of Pinochet in 1988 in NO (2012).
