CALL FOR PAPERS

Scope, a fully refereed online journal of film studies, edited by staff and
postgraduate students within the Institute of Film Studies at the University
of Nottingham, is looking for film reviews of 1,000 to 1,500 words and
review essays of 2,500 to 3,000 words to be included in forthcoming issues.
We are interested in both recently released movies and retrospective reviews
of older films (especially if these films have just been released on video
or DVD, or have been the focus of renewed critical attention).

The editors of the volume in progress, _Mary Astell: Gender, Reason,
Faith_, propose to move the study of Astell to a mature phase, and to
accommodate a variety of disciplinary perspectives so that the broad
span of Astell's work can be understood in its manifold contexts. The
editors of the volume are soliciting essays not only on Astell's
already canonized works, but on the full range of her political,
theological, philosophical, and poetic writings. The volume, however,
will not eschew the more traditional scholarly interest in Astell's
concerns about gender; rather, it aspires to reveal how Astell's
reflections on gender were always mediated through her diverse set of

Revised call: Oprah Anthology

We are soliciting papers for an academic anthology on the phenomenon of
Oprah. It is undeniable that Oprah Winfrey has transcended the iconic
cult of celebrity to become a Western cultural force of the late-twentieth
and early twenty-first centuries. As her show nears its much anticipated
end — though its endless reproduction in syndication seems inevitable — it
seems appropriate to produce an anthology that evaluates the multifaceted
influences and implications of Oprah.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

Pablo Mukherjee

        The editors of a proposed volume of collected essays titled 'The
Cultures of New World Order: Writing, Reading, Theory since 1991'invite
submissions of abstracts for essays between 6-8,000 words. The
abstracts themselves need not be more than 500 words.
        The volume of literature on globalisation has reached near
epidemic proportions, the analysis of one of its key elements - what the
U.S. president George Bush snr. called a 'new world order' in his 1991
State of Union Address - is also gathering pace. These critical efforts
have received a fresh boost by events such as Al-Quaida's September 11
attacks on New York, and the subsequent US-led invasions of Afghanistan
