Wrath of God: The Cinema of Klaus Kinski

updated: 
Saturday, November 23, 2013 - 7:21am
University West of England

This is a call for papers, for a new anthology tentatively titled Wrath of God: The films 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. Essays on Kinski/Herzog will be welcome, though only one essay per film will be included in the collection.

I'm looking for critical and scholarly essays that discuss individual Kinski films or the man himself.

I have currently received essays on the following films:

Fitzcarraldo
Nosferatu
Paganini
Timestalker
Creature
Venus in Furs

Conference dates: 23-25 July 2014

Call for Papers

The works of Cormac McCarthy cover nearly two hundred years of southern and southwestern American history. Set initially in Tennessee and greater Appalachia, and more recently on the U.S./Mexico border, his books blend realism, mysticism and mythology, a combination that locates him squarely within the tradition of William Faulkner and Mark Twain, yet with a voice uniquely his own.

UPDATE-ReFocus: The Films of Ida Lupino

Edinburgh University Press

CALL FOR PAPERS for Film Volume

ReFocus: The Films of Ida Lupino

From Outrage (1950) to The Trouble with Angels (1966), among many other titles, few filmmakers created as unique a body of work in the United States as Ida Lupino (1918-1995), but few directors have been as critically overlooked in existing scholarly literature. Lupino also directed a significant number of television episodes.

We are currently soliciting abstracts of approximately 100 words for essays to be included in a book-length anthology on Ida Lupino to appear in 2015. Essays may focus on individual films or on themes and topics that pervade her films. These essays may also focus in work in other media, such as television.

[UPDATE] The future of the biennial: experimental places to reinvent political space? Deadline December 13

Friday, November 22, 2013 - 5:09am
Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics

The upcoming issue of Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics will discuss the political future of the contemporary art biennial. How can biennials become experimental «sites» to rethink the relationship between art and politics, without lending themselves too easily to the confines of the contemporary art market and neoliberal political geography? While biennials have been criticized for subjecting themselves to urban/ regional marketing strategies, they have also been defended as valuable places for the formation of new alliances among art scenes of the 'periphery', that are today steadily changing the global art map.

Horrors of War: The Living, the Undead, and the Battlefield

War is hell, we tell ourselves, and battlefields are places where the spirits of the dead linger. Supernatural language and imagery—sacred and secular alike—pervades modern depictions of warfare, from Julia Ward Howe's "Battle Hymn of the Republic" to the opening scenes of Gladiator, in which a Roman general commands his men to "unleash Hell." The "honored dead" of past wars are routinely marshaled, in both pro- and anti-war rhetoric, to pass judgment on the conflicts of the present.
