Vernon Press invites chapter proposals on the theme: “A Hero Will Endure”: Essays at the Twentieth Anniversary of Gladiator for an edited collection.

Martin M. Winkler edited a collection about Gladiator regarding its historical and media aspects. There are also several single essays about psychological (Skweres), political, or cultural issues related to the film. Nevertheless, there have been no other collections on the cultural and social impact of the film since its release. The twentieth anniversay has just passed, and the time is right for presenting new insights about this award-winning film.

Specific topics that the editor is seeking to round out the collection include:

This is the final Call for Papers for the edited book ‘Capture Japan: Visual Culture and the Global Imagination from 1952 to the Present’. The book analyses, deconstructs and challenges representations of Japan in a variety of different visual media such as cinema, documentary film, photography, visual art and computer games. The book is now under contract with Bloomsbury and due to the recent withdrawal of a contributor, we are now looking for a replacement chapter. We are particularly keen to hear from potential contributions on anime, manga, animation or comics which are topics that are currently underrepresented in the book.

The Hero is Female Katniss Everdeen’s hand signal is now used at real-world rallies, and Princess Leia is the face of the real-world resistance movement. More than ever fictional female protagonists are symbols of hope and strength during these turbulent times, but power can take many forms and often these characters can take nontraditional paths. This panel will focus on female protagonists in fiction and film, with an emphasis on genre narratives, as we examine the ways in which women of all ages gain revelations and empowerment.
