CALL FOR PAPERS for A Century of the Marx Brothers to be published by
Cambridge Scholars Press.

This collection will consider the impact of the Marx Brother's work over
the past one hundred years. Papers can analyze individual films,
consider the Marx Brothers' influence on contemporary artists, or
explore some other aspect of their work. The collection hopes to
showcase the range of the Marx Brothers' influence and a variety of
theoretical approaches. Current contributions include the Marx Brothers
"ethnic construction of character," a Deleuzian reading of their humor,
Woody Allen's appreciation of their work, and a consideration of their
surrealistic aspects.
