Neo-Victorian Villains: Call for Abstracts for Edited Volume

Thursday, July 4, 2013 - 5:46pm
Dr Benjamin Poore, University of York

The Victorian villain of melodramatic stereotype cuts an instantly recognisable figure: cue the top hat and opera cape, the whiskers and moustache, the tremolo fiddle. Yet the narrowing down and simplifying of the Victorian villain is to a large extent a post-Victorian convention, strongly tied to the twentieth century's cultural assumptions of the Victorians as history's 'bad guys' (as Matthew Sweet, Christine L. Krueger and Rohan McWilliam and Kelly Boyd, among others, have noted).

REPOST: Misanthropy and Transhumanism in Utopian Fiction

Man is a rope stretched … over an abyss. What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not a goal.

If human beings were shown what they're really like, they'd either kill one another as vermin, or hang themselves.

[UPDATE] Wrath of God: Cinema of Klaus Kinski

Thursday, July 4, 2013 - 11:45am
University West of England

This is an update to my previous CFP. I am still looking for papers on the cinema of Klaus Kinski.

The collection looks to bring together a series of essays (interviews with filmmakers, will be welcome) on one of cinema's truly volatile sons. Particular emphasis on Kinski's more exploitive roles and obscure gems. The collection looks to examine his cinema in relation to his off-screen persona and asks whether we can truly call Kinski a true 'genius'.

I'm looking for critical and scholarly essays, written in an accessible and not overly dry manner, that discuss individual Kinski films.

So far, I have articles on:
