Wide Screen invites papers for its 2021 General Issue (Issue 9 No. 1).
For the last several years, we have worked primarily with guest editors who have edited special issues that have attracted exciting work on subjects such as the production of cinematic space, video games, and the studio system in Indian cinema. This year, we want to invite papers for a general issue that is open to new, critical work in all areas of film and media studies.
You can submit critical essays, book reviews, festival reports or interviews.
In addition, we are also accepting abstracts for two dossiers that will be a part of this issue.

Science Fiction and Fantasy are lasting fields of inquiring into today’s world. They have become privileged means to question issues of aesthetic, ethical, political, social, economic, environmental and historical nature with high impact on contemporary societies.

Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard
Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on;
Not to the sensual ear, but, more endear’d,
Pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone:
– ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’, John Keats
Samyukta: A Journal of Gender & Culture proposes to bring out a special number on early women’s magazines in Malayalam. These magazines played a significant role in negotiating the gender dynamics in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Keralam. The debates on the lives of women with reference to modernity, colonial or otherwise, have been fraught with paradoxes and contradictions that require detailed interrogation. While the grand narratives of the times were scripted by and for men, women’s lives were punctuated mostly by the banalities of everyday lives. The new found interest at the turn of the twenty-first century in micro-narratives that tell alternate stories contesting the dominant has prompted us to undertake the present study.
HUNGER AND WASTE
Volume 40, Number 1, Spring 2022
Issue Editor: Isabelle Meuret
This issue of Literature and Medicine will interrogate expressions of hunger and waste in both literary and biomedical contexts.
Hunger is a physiological disposition, a daily preoccupation, and a metaphor for desire. On another scale, global hunger—leading to malnutrition and starvation—affects hundreds of millions living in poverty. As for waste, the dearth, careless use, or squandering of resources, together with climate change and other environmental challenges, have raised new concerns about food supplies and unequal access.
ABO's pedagogy series, Concise Collections on Teaching Eighteenth-Century Women, seeks submissions for an article grouping on Teaching Women Travellers in the Eighteenth Century.
Solo Theater and Performance
Solo Theater and Performance is envisaged as an edited anthology of critical essays encompassing contemporary practices, issues and methods, prominent figures, and historical contexts in the domain of one-person theater and performance. Research scholars and academics interested in the area are welcome to contribute to the proposed volume.
2021 marks the 10th anniversary of Allison Hawthorne Deming and Lauret Savoy’s The Colors of Nature: Culture, Identity, and the Natural World. The essays that Deming and Savoy collect in this important anthology all seek to expand traditional understandings of nature writing and environmental thought by reflecting on “how identity and place, human history and ‘natural’ history, power and silence, and social injustice and environmental degradation are fundamentally linked” (10).
In the early modern period, numerous travel memoirs and geographical texts assumed the form of printed compilations or composite collections. For a long time, only bibliophiles and book collectors, in their search for the “complete” collections, considered such texts as having true unity; Boucher de La Richarderie (1808), who put together a bibliography that is authoritative to this day, is a case in point. Such collections were often used as a way to find precise texts from such and such traveller or chronicler, without taking into account the book in which the texts featured, qua book.
Papers are sought for a book collection on any aspect of epistemological representations with a focus on ecocritical, environmental, ethic and literary approaches. The book explores both oral and written representations of the land and nature throughout the Ibero-American world.
