Issue 15: Intimacy

In recent years, scholars from a broad range of disciplines have engaged the issue of intimacy. From these various efforts, at least one fact is clear: There is not one intimacy, but many. How do we describe these intimacies, and what complicates our descriptions? Intimacy is not simply synonymous with love, but it is different from friendship, and often quite different from sex. Or is it? Moreover, once we have discovered what intimacy is, where do we find it: in communities and nations, between or among friends, between or among lovers? How is intimacy negotiated and produced, maintained, or, often, lost?

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)

Wednesday, March 2, 2005 - 4:24pm
Jason Paul Steed

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".

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.

Woody Allen is one of America's most notable filmmakers. Much of the

career. Possible topics could include, but are certainly not limited to:
