This volume takes up the topic of Spanish Cinema from the Post-Franco period beginning in 1975 to the present. Covering over 400 entries that include films, producers, directors, actresses, actors, genres, and critical interpretations, the breadth and depth of this volume may generate some highly significant material for both academics, as well as general audiences.
The first of its kind (indeed there are no other encyclopedias that cover this topic anywhere on the market), the Encyclopedia of Spanish Film would be a timely pop cultural companion to both Spanish/Iberian Studies and Film Studies.

Originally deriving from the Old French bordure (meaning "seam" and "edge of a shield"), in its geopolitical sense the term "border" was first used in Scotland in the 1530s. The Borders was indeed the name of the district adjoining the English boundary. Accordingly, over the centuries borders have been used to signal differences, separations, distinctions, discontinuities, the beginning of the other, as well as the need for protection and preservation. One could mention cultural, linguistic, political, social, gender borders, and the list could of course be much longer.
Please share the following CfP with any graduate students who may be interested. Deadline for Paper Proposals: 23:59 GMT on Monday 21 March 2016.
