Institutional grant funding has been secured to custom publish an anthology
of new essays dealing with the depiction of religious faith or spirituality
in world cinema. The editors seek proposals for critically informed,
previously unpublished essays that explore the representation of faith and
spirituality in canonical works of film. Although all proposals are
welcome, essays dealing with one or more of the following directors are
especially solicited:

--Michelangelo Antonioni
--Ingmar Bergman
--Robert Bresson
--Luis Buñuel
--Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne
--Carl Theodor Dreyer
--Krzysztof Kieslowski
--Akira Kurosawa
--Yasujiro Ozu
--Roberto Rossellini
--Andrei Tarkovsky.

Essays should demonstrate a familiarity with the reception history or
critical dialogue surrounding the director(s) or film(s) being discussed,
but they should avoid being openly derivative.

The deadline for proposals is August 1, 2007.
Electronic submissions are welcome.

Please direct proposals, submissions, or questions to:
