[UPDATE] Edited collection on American Cinema after 9/11. (Deadline February 10 2016)
Submissions are sought for ONE FINAL COMPLETED CHAPTER in a forthcoming edited collection under contract at Edinburgh University Press called American Cinema in the Shadow of 9/11. The volume is edited by Terence McSweeney author of The 'War on Terror' and American Film: 9/11 Frames Per Second (EUP, 2014).
The COMPLETED piece should be concerned with films which have directly portrayed the 'War on Terror' onscreen: combat films set in Iraq or Afghanistan, films which have depicted the events of 9/11, cinematic depictions of the CIA or FBI or any topic which would be relevant to this perspective.
The piece can be anywhere between 5,000 and 8,000 words and should reach Dr McSweeney before February 10th 2016.
The collection, which will be released around the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11 in September 2016, intends to examine and interrogate the representation of 9/11 and the 'War on Terror' in contemporary American film.
