CALL FOR PAPERS for Film Volume

ReFocus: The Films of Ida Lupino

From Outrage (1950) to The Trouble with Angels (1966), among many other titles, few filmmakers created as unique a body of work in the United States as Ida Lupino (1918-1995), but few directors have been as critically overlooked in existing scholarly literature. Lupino also directed a significant number of television episodes.

We are currently soliciting abstracts of approximately 100 words for essays to be included in a book-length anthology on Ida Lupino to appear in 2015. Essays may focus on individual films or on themes and topics that pervade her films. These essays may also focus in work in other media, such as television.

Essays included in the refereed anthology will be of approximately 5,000 to 8,000 words, referenced in Chicago endnote style.

The Films of Ida Lupino will be one of the first scholarly editions to be published by the University of Edinburgh Press in a new series of anthologies examining overlooked American film directors. Series editors are Robert Singer, Ph.D. and Gary D. Rhodes, Ph.D.

Please attach a curriculum vitae to your abstract, and email them to:
