This is a call for papers, for a new anthology tentatively titled Wrath of God: The films of Klaus Kinski.

The collection looks to bring together a series of essays (interviews with filmmakers, will be welcome) on one of cinema's truly volatile sons. Particular emphasis on Kinski's more exploitive roles and obscure gems. Essays on Kinski/Herzog will be welcome, though only one essay per film will be included in the collection (if multiple proposals are received, then the most relevant will be selected).

I’m looking for critical and scholarly essays, written in an accessible and not overly dry manner, that discuss individual Kinski films.

If interested, I recommend that you first send a 300-400 word proposal (or a simple email, in order to check the paper’s suitability). Submissions and proposals should be sent to Matthew6.Edwards@live.uwe.ac.uk

All texts should be in Times New Roman, font size 12 and justified. Please use endnotes, though please refrain from using the endnotes facility on your computer. For notes, please use superscript and number all notes numerically.

Closing date for completed submissions will be May 30th. This deadline will be rigorously enforced as I am aiming for a 2013 publication.

Matthew Edwards is the editor of the anthology Film out of Bounds, which was published in the US by Mcfarland and Co in 2007.
