Call for papers: "Screening Cultural Diversity"

This volume which will be published in the Anglo-amerikanische Studien - Anglo-American studies (eds. Ahrens Rüdiger and Kevin Cope), Peter Lang, proposes to explore how cultural diversity has been represented on the small and large screen in both colonial and post-colonial contexts and to reflect on the reasons for the editorial choices that have been made. The wide range of possible subjects include, for instance, discussions of traditional adaptations and post-colonial interpretations of literary classics, examinations of film and television productions dealing with major events in the (non-)avowed history of (de)colonisation and analyses of films, programmes and series in which questions of integration, diversity and national and cultural identity are main or significant themes.

Deadline for abstracts: 15th July 2010
Deadline for submission of peer-reviewed articles: 15th October 2010
