The original CFP for this collection had the wrong word count for submissions. The corrected CFP follows:

Shelves and shelves have been filled with scholarly attention to baseball in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.; likewise, shelves and shelves have been devoted to the study of humor (in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.). Yet, surprisingly little has been said about the relationship between the two.

Proposed is a collection of new essays on the relationship between humor and baseball (in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.). Topics might include, but certainly are not limited to:

CFP: Evil in the Films of M. Night Shyamalan (8/15/05; collection)

M. Night Shyamalan has emerged as a noteworthy American filmmaker -- he has even been compared to Hitchcock -- yet very little scholarly attention has been paid to his work.

As all of Shyamalan's films explore the encounter with, or the nature of evil, and as the scholarly examination of evil, ethics/morality, and religion has become a timely one, I am proposing a collection of new essays on evil and/in Shyamalan's films.

The working title for the collection is "'Those we don't speak of': Essays on Evil in the Films of M. Night Shyamalan".

How The West Was Won: New Perspectives on Transnational East Asian Cinema

Edited by Leon Hunt and Wing-Fai Leung

With the success of Hero, Ringu (and its Hollywood remake), Oldboy and Ong-Bak in the west, contemporary East Asian cinema has transcended geographical, cultural and theoretical boundaries. The articles in this collection will examine films from the Far East and their transnational consumption as an ever changing process, presenting new perspectives that contest existing frameworks in film studies.
