We are seeking contributors for the Directory of World Cinema, Sweden.
This Directory, published by Intellect, is slated to be a wide-ranging
and authoritative resource for scholars as well as students of
literature and film. The Directory will be published in both print and
online formats, with the edited print volume for Sweden
to be published by the end of 2011, and every other year from then on.

For more information, go to:

This volume sets out to provide critical insight to Swedish films
since the inception of this genre over a century ago through film
reviews, essays considering major
elements of the Swedish film industry, generic trends, reception, and
aesthetics as well as studies devoted to specific films, film
directors, actors and the "On Location" supplement section (looking at
the way certain places and spaces are portrayed through film as
presented in the Intellect journal The Big Picture). By foregrounding
academic film at the intersection of history, theory, and analysis,
this volume aims to deepen the reader's understanding and appreciation
of Swedish cinema.

Contributions assigned at this stage will have an October 1, 2010
submission deadline.
