POST SCRIPT SPECIAL ISSUE:
CONTEMPORARY SOUTH KOREAN CINEMA
Editor is seeking papers for a special issue of Post Script that will focus on the "Korean New Wave" as a cultural and historical phenomenon, as well as the significant individual works (commercial features, short films, and television dramas) and trends that have come to define it.
Topics to be considered might include: studies of the political, cultural, and economic impact of film and television drama both in Korea and international markets (especially in Japan and the US); analyses of the role played by private financing in the evolution of Korean popular film; examinations of intertextual references to and adaptations of works drawn from other national cinemas and literatures; readings of particular films; and thoughts on how Korean films have been marketed to international audiences.
Contributions sought include not only traditional critical/analytical works, but also book reviews (several important new titles on the subject have appeared in the past two years) and interviews. The aim of the issue is to provide a comprehensive and accessible overview of the state of Korean cinema and studies of Korean cinema.
Please submit proposals (of 250-750 words) to guest editor R.L. Cagle at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 01, 2005. Completed essays (of no more than 7,000 words, MLA format) will be due in December 2005.
