Call for Papers
Special Issue on Space and Time in Film
The editors of Alphaville: Journal of Film and Screen Media seek additional articles
for its second issue to be published online in 2011.

Alphaville is a new, fully peer-reviewed, biannual graduate and early career
researchers' journal that is committed to publishing fresh and original research in the
fields of film and screen media. The Editorial Board is comprised of doctoral and
post-doctoral researchers at University College Cork. It is the first of its kind in
Ireland, and will be launched in Summer 2011.

The second issue, which will have a publication date of Winter 2011, stems
thematically from the 8th Irish Postgraduate Film Research Seminar, a recent
international graduate conference held at University College Cork in March 2011.
The seminar focused on two fundamental (and interconnected) aspects of the medium, taking the theme of Space and Time in Film. The editors welcome abstracts for articles that fall under this rubric, and that would complement an already diverse
collection. We are interested in articles that examine space and/or time in
film/television/media from a representative, diegetic, aesthetic, cultural, societal,
political, or historical perspective, either through close readings of specific texts or
through broader considerations of practice in both past and contemporary filmmaking
and film theory.

Potential contributors are invited to submit an article abstract (300 words), along with
a short bibliography and an up-to-date CV to the editors by 03 June 2011 at:

The editors' decision will follow swiftly. Following acceptance, authors will be
required to submit their articles by 02 September 2011. Completed articles submitted
for peer-review should be 5500-6000 words in length and follow MLA style.

Please contact the editors, Marian Hurley, Deborah Mellamphy and Jill Moriarty,
with any queries at the above email address.
