Call for Contributors

Arising from a recent successful conference in Galway Ireland dealing with the life and work of John Huston, several publishers have expressed an interested in publishing a new collection of essays on this most talented of American film writers, directors and actors. In finalising our proposal, the editor would like to add to the core of papers delivered at the conference and invite submissions on topics relating to Huston. These might include: studies of one or a number of his adaptations; his career as an actor; representations of race or gender in his work; his place within the Hollywood 'system', etc. We are particularly interested in expanding the list of films under discussion (we have a heavy emphasis on Key Largo, Moby Dick, The Dead). Please only submit an abstract of approx 500 words at this stage.

Contributors should address all inquiries, proposals and submissions to:

Associate Director, Huston School of Film and Digital Media, National Univeristy of Ireland, Galway
