Call for Submissions to a Special Issue of the Journal of Popular Film and Television on Holmes Onscreen (Tentative Title)

Tom Ue, Department of English, University College London

Heralded by The Telegraph as a 'global phenomenon,' BBC's Sherlock is now one of the most commercially and critically successful television series of all time. The global recognition of Sherlock, combined with the recent discovery of Arthur Berthelet's 1916 silent film Sherlock Holmes starring William Gillette in his only screen appearance as the famous sleuth, makes it especially timely for film scholars, students, and audiences to reassess the cultural legacy of Holmes onscreen. Forthcoming work by Hills (2016) and Poore (2016) argue strongly for Holmes as a continuing source of scholarly interest, spurring us to look at Holmes' filmic lives.

Edited Collection - The Global Road Movie, Deadline July 30

Timothy Corrigan (University of Pennsylvania) – José Duarte (University of Lisbon/ULICES)

In light of the recent publications on road movies (Neil Archer, 2012; Gott and Schilt, 2013; Sara Brandellero, 2013 or Natália Pinnaza, 2014), we welcome contributions for a volume focusing on road movies around the world, giving voice to directors and films previously neglected. Primarily an American genre – as discussed in Corrigan, 1991; Cohan and Hark, 1997; Laderman, 2002, Mills, 2006 or Orgeron, 2007 – the road movie was rapidly adopted by other nations, as exemplified by the particular case of South-American countries, like Brazil or Argentina.
