We are soliciting contributions for a collection of essays (to be
published by McFarland and Company ) which will address the work of
Stanley Kubrick from a variety of new and fresh perspectives. In
general, we are particularly interested in essays that synthesize
analyses of several Kubrick films as they relate to a particular
topic, rather than single film studies. As an example, an essay is
already underway on architecture and Kubrick's films. We particularly
encourage original, groundbreaking analysis and discussions of
overlooked aspects of Kubrick's work.

Preference will be given to essays that are already completed or
nearing completion.

Chapters will
include, but are not limited to the following subjects:

*Kubrick as photographer

*Kubrick as newsreel filmmaker (e.g., DAY OF THE FIGHT, THE SEAFARERS,

*Kubrick and genre

*Kubrick and gender

*Kubrick and politics

*Kubrick and technology

*Kubrick and war

*Kubrick and adaptation

*Kubrick's unfinished projects

*Kubrick's reputation as a filmmaker

*Kubrick and Spielberg's A.I.

*Kubrick's relationship to the other arts (painting, music, etc.)

*We are also seeking several essays on various aspects of 2001: A
Space Odyssey for what will be a section of the book devoted to that

*We'd be particularly interested in less often analyzed films of
Kubrick's, especially Fear and Desire, Spartacus, and Eyes Wide Shut.
