Call for Contributions
| Controversial Films |
For a special special Controversial Films section on the website of the international, interdisciplinary journal Film & History we seek to offer an informed, balanced and scholarly approach to controversial films. The term ‘controversial’ may be understood in a broad way as productions that prompt, are marked by or are capable of arousing controversy. Although we are particularly interested in contemporary films we also welcome contributions on ‘older’ films like The Deer Hunter (Michael Cimino, 1978) or Pier Paolo Pasolini's Salò or The 120 Days of Sodom (Italy, 1975), which was released in Britain not until 25 years after it was made. Inasmuch as we appreciate contributions by historians we, in the tradition of the Film & History journal, invite scholars from other fields to contribute to the controversial films section.
| Rules & Contact Information |
The Editors of the website for Film & History reserve the right to use or reject postings for a variety of reasons: inflammatory content, ad hominem attack, or “thumbs up/thumbs down” criticisms will not be posted on the site. In some cases, postings will be redundant of existing statements on the site and, while appreciated, will not be posted. Finally, there are always the je ne sais quoi postings which will be returned to the authors.
In most cases, we will solicit contributions, but anyone wanting to participate should send a cover note with a clear identification of geographical location, institutional affiliation and rank, departmental office phone number and most reliable personal phone number. Of course, the email address should be prominent. Please do not submit anything without such information.
Use endnotes and parenthetical citations. Have a Works Cited section at the end of the article. Use detailed and scholarly citations so that readers can pursue your ideas and sources properly in the spirit of scholarship. When web materials have been used, please cite properly.
