This special issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities will focus on Alfred Hitchcock, the "master of suspense" whose career spanned from the 1920s to the 1970s. Hitchcock produced and directed over fifty motion pictures, in addition to hosting two anthology series on television. His film craftsmanship is still relevant today, as his influence is continuously cited by contemporary filmmakers and he is regularly taught in cinema classes. For this special issue, we will be looking for scholarly articles, book reviews, and nonfiction essays that explore various aspects of Hitchcock's work and personal life, and how the two often connected: music, television, gender, humor, voyeurism, film history, or film theory, to name just a few. We ask that all essays be interdisciplinary in nature and that they do not exceed 6,000 words. Please send inquiries and submissions to Dr. Michael Howarth
