This year, we want to invite papers for a general issue that is open to new, critical work in all areas of film and media studies.

You can submit critical essays, book reviews, festival reports or interviews.

Uses of Geographical Compilations and Collections: Readings, Translations, and Reuses (16th-18th Centuries)

In the early modern period, numerous travel memoirs and geographical texts assumed the form of printed compilations or composite collections. For a long time, only bibliophiles and book collectors, in their search for the “complete” collections, considered such texts as having true unity; Boucher de La Richarderie (1808), who put together a bibliography that is authoritative to this day, is a case in point. Such collections were often used as a way to find precise texts from such and such traveller or chronicler, without taking into account the book in which the texts featured, qua book.

Special Issue: Searching for the Modern Girl: Flappers and Bright Young Things Around the World

updated: 
Thursday, May 20, 2021 - 12:17pm
The Space Between Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 31, 2021

While the Bright Young Things of England and the flappers of the America remain fixed in cultural memory, their incarnations elsewhere around the world have all but disappeared from history.  Affiliation with a feminized Anglo-European metropole may have contributed to their invisibility in the colonial peripheries, which constructed political identities around paradigms of masculine nationhood or were anxious to distinguish themselves from Anglo-European mass culture. Despite her iconic status in the interwar period, the Modern Girl was a stigmatized female figure in her own time, and that stigma seems to have carried over into the academy, inhibiting serious critical analysis of her role and function as an image for modernity.

Call For Papers – ReFocus: The Films of David Mamet

We are seeking abstracts of 250-500 words for essays to be included in a book-length anthology on David Mamet to appear in late 2022. We have received a number of strong proposals already, but looking for a few more to add to the volume’s lineup. The intended scope of the work is to analyze Mamet’s unique position as an artist of note in both the theatre and the cinema, as well as his very specific ideas about dramatic structure, performance style, and economical visual storytelling. It will argue, for the first time, that Mamet’s film work is an essential, but underappreciated dimension of his artistic career.
