Screen Bodies is soliciting review materials and reviewers for our first volume.

Screen Bodies, a fully refereed publication premiering from Berghahn Journals in 2015, is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on the intersection of Screen Studies and Body Studies across disciplines, institutions, and media. It is a forum promoting the discussion of research and practices through articles, reviews, interviews, and notes investigating various aspects of embodiment on screens and in front of screens. The journal considers studies of moving and still images, such as cinema, television, the Internet, digital photography, portable and personal devices, and medical and surveillance imaging. The journal considers studies of the portrayal, function, and reception of the body, such as gender and sexuality studies, feminism and masculinity studies, trans* studies, queer theory, critical race theory, cyborg studies, and dis/ability studies.

Screen Bodies features reviews and review articles of books, dvds, television series, Internet and online projects, festivals and gallery/museum exhibitions, and other media at the intersection of screens and embodiment. To recommend or send materials, please contact our review editors—Nicholas de Villiers (n.devilliers@unf.edu) and Gabriel Cid de Garcia (gcidgarcia@gmail.com).

Writers interested in reviewing materials or writing review articles should contact the review editors at the above email addresses.

Materials and Reviews must be received by 15 October 2014 to be considered for Issue 1.
