Apologies for cross-postings.

We are preparing our second volume on fantasy fiction (to be published in Poland or by Peter Lang) but apart from papers on books we have decided to solicit papers on anime, animated movies (Shrek, Monsters and Co., etc.) or feature films (e.g. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardobe) that would stress
their ethical, spiritual or educational values for young audiences. The articles
should be 6,000 words, in MLA. We would welcome abstracts and short
biographical notes first. The deadline for the articles is the end of
January.

historicizing, and theorizing the intersection of gender and nation in
film and television. The intersection of these two discourses is our
focus but we are interested also in papers that consider the relationship

topics. Essays with an interdisciplinary framework are welcome. Topics
may include (but are not limited to) the following:

CFP: Shakespeare and the Cultures of Childhood, 1807-2007 (1/31/06; journal issue)

updated: 
Wednesday, December 21, 2005 - 7:05pm
Kate Chedgzoy

2007 sees the two-hundredth anniversary of the first publication of two
books that have played distinctively significant roles in the mediation
of Shakespeare for children, and the reception of his works by them:
Charles and Mary Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare, and Henrietta Bowdler's
The Family Shakespeare (revised by her brother Thomas a decade later).
As guest-editors of a cluster of essays in the December 2006 issue of
the new Routledge journal Shakespeare, we wish to take this anniversary
as an opportunity to reflect on some of the meanings and consequences of
Shakespeare's global travels through the cultures of childhood over the
last two hundred years.

Woody Allen's appreciation of their work, and a consideration of their
surrealistic aspects.
