Keith Dromm and Heather Salter

Abstracts are sought for a collection of philosophical essays on J. D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, to be edited by Keith Dromm and Heather Salter.

Previous volumes in the series include Seinfeld and Philosophy, The Matrix and Philosophy, Hitchcock and Philosophy, The Golden Compass and Philosophy, and many others.

Abstracts should be for essays that use philosophy to illuminate the novel's characters, story, or themes. The volume is geared toward a general audience, readers who may have little to no prior familiarity with philosophy. The chapters should be accessible, clearly written, and capable of engaging non-philosophers.

From Boardroom to Bijou: Exploring Cinema Distribution and Exhibition (proposals by 30th June 2010)

Sunday, March 7, 2010 - 4:45am
Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities - special issue

Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities (Texas A & M University-Commerce) welcomes original manuscript submissions for a special issue on cinema distribution and exhibition.

The classic Hollywood studio model had three main strings: production, distribution and exhibition. Less print space has been devoted to scholarship on the latter two, which remain essential to the story of cinema in the United States and the rest of the world. Post Script aims to address this imbalance with a special issue focusing on the business of film distribution and the art of cinema exhibition. Papers, essays, interviews, reviews and other articles on any area of cinema distribution or exhibition are welcome.
