This is an update to my previous CFP. I am still looking for papers on the cinema 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. The collection looks to examine his cinema in relation to his off-screen persona and asks whether we can truly call Kinski a true 'genius'.

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

So far, I have articles on:

Paganini
Fitzcarraldo
Nosferatu
Venus in Furs
Timestalkers/Creature

I am particularly looking for essays on Herzog collaborations and his euro-Westerns.

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 fatherib@aol.com

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 September 30th.

Matthew Edwards is the editor of the anthology Film out of Bounds, which was published in the US by Mcfarland and Co in 2007 and the forthcoming book Enola's Light: Japanese Cinema and the A-bomb (McFarland and Co. 2014).
