Film Medicine

Chapters and appropriate chapter suggestions are sought for:

"Signs of Life: Medicine and the Cinema"

"Signs of Life: Medicine and the Cinema" will consider how medicine,
the medical profession and medical science have been presented in
the cinema. The book will offer an historical, cultural and textual
study of the filmic representation of medicine and will appeal to both the
film studies and a wider film readership.

This book development project already includes a foreword by a major name in
medicine and the medical humanities and is receiving extremely enthusiastic
responses internationally. We intend for this to be an exceptional book.

This is a call for papers for the 4th Issue of M/C/T a journal/e-zine
concerned with Media, Culture and Technology. For this issue, we have the
following special theme:

The Fake Issue

What's real? What's true? These may seem like outdated questions in these
hyper wired times of ours. Indeed, as Jean Baudrillard pointed out years
ago, the question of authenticity no longer matters in the same way, now
that we are fully immersed in an environment of virtual simulation. The
quest for authenticity is not only pointless but dissatisfying as well.

The Journal of Narrative Theory (JNT) seeks submissions for an
upcoming special issue (Fall 2000) on cinema and film. Of particular
interest ar papers that situate the production, distribution, and
reception of cinema and films within their historical, theoretical,
ideological and pedagogical contexts. For example, papers that
historicize film genres, theorize about film historiography, or read
films as ideological texts that manufacture consent around class,
gender, and race issues are encouraged. Papers about avante-garde,
documentary, and children's cinematic forms are also relevant and
welcome. This is an initial paper call. Please address any comments to

Two years ago in the Leiden Faculty of Letters a series of lectures
was given on "Greek Myth and Roman History on Stage and
Screen", viz. how the myths and the history had been represented in
plays and films. It was the intention of the organizers of the series
that the lectures would eventually be published as a book.
Unfortunately, for various reasons, only a portion of the lectures
have been submitted as articles. Nevertheless, it still remains an
interesting project and I was wondering whether you could help us
by publicizing the Call for Articles for the projected book on your
Website. We already have articles on such subjects as "Greek
