Trash Cinema: A Primer for Beginners (collection)

UPDATED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 1 January, 2006

CALL FOR PAPERS: Collection of critical essays on trash cinema

We invite submissions for a critical anthology about the ever-expanding
world of national and international trash cinema.

As fans of trash cinema, while we do like to think of the form as being
utterly anti- or counter- "mainstream" cinema, in the ways it challenges
or reworks many of its assumptions, we are amazed at how many trash
favorites (both personal and more perennial, if such a thing exists)
have a striking formal similarity to - as well as an appeal for devotees
of - the "traditional" film canon's fare.

Southern Exposure: Analyzing the U.S. South through Film

CFP: Critics often cite D. W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation as the
origin of the Hollywood feature film and credit it with helping to
form the Hollywood narrative style. However, the film also marks the
importance of the U.S. southern setting in shaping the American
cinematic imagination. Griffith's film raises the broad issues of
war, tragedy, and romance, but also depicts the more disturbing
issues that continue to be associated with the filmic south: racial
and sexual violence, slavery, vigilante justice, and lynching.
