Divorce in Film

We are editing a book entitled After Intimacy: The Culture of Divorce in the
West since 1789, contracted for publication in 2006 and consisting of a
collection of commissioned essays from scholars in the US and the UK,
ranging across European and American literature and culture.

To complete the collection, we are seeking a chapter on divorce in film of
about 8,000 words to be submitted by 1 April 2006. The focus of the
chapter might be Hollywood cinema, or European cinema, or the cinema
of one European country, and might range across different periods or
focus on contemporary developments. Anyone interested in joining this
project is invited to contact us with a brief proposal by email to as soon as possible.
