updated: 
Tuesday, November 16, 2021 - 10:56am
David A. Cook and Will Dodson, UNC Greensboro
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2022

The Anthem Series on Exploitation and Industry in World Cinema incorporates a broad range of scholarship on filmmakers, genres, cycles and national cinemas, focusing on ways in which exploitation filmmaking and distribution subsidize riskier commercial or “art cinema” work. Titles in this series focus on a single exploitation filmmaker/producer/distributor, an exploitation genre/cycle or the exploitation component of a national cinema. The series considers new and fuller understandings of the interdependent development of exploitation, commercial and arthouse cinema as technology enables new cultures of audience reception.

Open deadline for monograph and edited collection proposals.

CALL FOR PAPERS: The CEA Critic, Special Issue: “Impediments to Student Success”

For the past year (and more), teachers at all levels, across disciplines, and, indeed, around the globe have been working overtime to ensure their students’ success in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID presented a set of obstacles new to most of us. At the same time, COVID called our attention to obstacles that have interrupted our students’ paths since long before the pandemic. These obstacles, which have only become more obvious, are what we now wish to explore.
