As researchers, no matter our subject, we commit ourselves to a process of generating, analysing and debating ideas. In working towards completion, we continue to gather and negotiate an increasing number of ideas, always looking to constellate them in rich and innovative ways. As these constellations expand and contract, as the ideas fall in and out of view, the documents we retain begin to record a far more expansive sphere of possibility than can be accounted for in a single thesis.
Under the Light is focused mostly on discussing and reviewing indie and foreign films, but we are not limited to this. We'd like to create a sort of guide on how to approach films when analyzing and reviewing them (where the analysis or review will be academic in scope). There are books out there on this already, but we'd like to have more genre-specific papers for our guide. Here are just some possibilities:
- The aesthetics of the grotesque in horror film
- Looking at a foreign film through the lens of the respective culture and society
- Psychoanalysis and film
- Film as ecocriticism; ecology within film
Articles can be more general than this, or maybe even more specific (but just slightly so).
Special issue on “Revisiting and/or Reinventing Modernism”
To be guest-edited by
Maria-Ana Tupan , Alba Iulia University, Romania
The upcoming issue of the Spring Magazine welcomes papers on modernism that try to clear the fog accumulated by radical revisions of this chapter in the history of literature published in the 1990s and in the early twenty-first century.

The Concept Note
The Chitrolekha Journal on Art and Design (www.chitrolekha.com) is a scholarly platform for discussions on the evolution and intercategorial development of art and design. The journal explores arts both as a mode of signaling as well as being in an ontological sense. The mystery of the first arts of our ancestors intrigues us today, from a scientific as much as an aesthetic perspective. Similarly the future of arts leads us to think of things quite unknown to us. The scope of the journal therefore, will be open-ended so as to be able to incorporate and address emerging areas in human arts and sciences. Research papers on any of the following broad areas can be submitted:
