Edited Collection: Lost and Othered Children in Contemporary Cinema

Call for contributions to Starlight and Shadows: Images of Lost and Othered Children in Contemporary Cinema. [tentative title]

Seeking original articles for an edited collection about lost and "Othered" children in contemporary cinema (from 1980 to the present). In contrast to traditional portraits of sweetness and light, there is a large body of cinematic works that provide a counter note of darkness to the more common notion of the innocent and pure child. These films depict childhood as a site of knowingness, despair, sexuality, death, and even madness. This collection's project is to explore this filmic imagining of the dark side of childhood.

The century that witnessed capitalistic growth, slavery and, in some countries, the abolition movement, the emerging of newly distinctive literary genres and fashionably defined gender roles is no longer understood as simply the time of Augustan restrictions and budding Romantic sensibilities.
