Edited Volume, Cinema Liberation Theology


I am looking for a few 4,000 - 5,000 word chapters on cinema and theology, leaning toward, yet not exhausted by, the tradition of liberation theology. The goal is to explore the capabilities of cinema in terms of liberation and divinity. 


This collection focuses on liberation narratives which are in some way related to or inspired by religious traditions/literatures/practices/discourses from around the world. The films and analyses need not be explicitly religious in content, but need only to be argued in the context of liberation with theology, spirituality, or divinity functioning as a loose guide.


Film as Film Today: On the Criticism and Theory of V. F. Perkins

Friday, November 24, 2017 - 4:03am
University of Warwick
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 16, 2018

V. F. Perkins (1936-2016) was a foundational figure in the history of British film education, a pioneering theorist of the medium, and among the most insightful and eloquent writers on the art of film. His historical significance for the fields of film criticism and film study is uncontested. However, while Perkins’ work – particularly the seminal Film as Film (1972) – still influences certain strands of scholarship, its contemporary relevance for critics, theorists, and students is presently underappreciated. This symposium is dedicated to revaluating Perkins’ critical methods and arguments by exploring their continued utility for those studying film, television, audiovisual media, and aesthetics today.
