'A Call for Film and Television Reviews' for Scope: An Online Journal of Film and Television Studies
Call for Papers Date:
‘A Call for Film and Television Reviews’
Scope: An Online Journal of Film and Television Studies is currently accepting new submissions of film and television reviews.
If accepted, the reviews will be included in Scope, a peer-reviewed online journal edited by staff and students in the Institute of Film & Television Studies at the University of Nottingham. It is published three times a year, in February, June and October. As our title suggests, Scope provides a forum for discussion of all aspects of film and television history, theory and criticism.
Scope is keen to publish original review-essays of between 2000-3500 words and shorter reviews of 1000-2000 words. Scope welcomes reviews of past or current films from any type of cinema. These include but are not restricted to British films, Hollywood, world cinema, independent films, documentaries and made-for-TV movies. Similarly, Scope welcomes reviews of television programmes from anywhere in the world, from popular series to obscure one-offs, past or present. Whatever the subject, Scope welcomes original perspectives and opinionated writing.
Scope is particularly keen to publish reviews of films and television that remake, adapt or otherwise reuse material from past texts. In the cinema, examples include Hollywood remakes of World cinema, such as The Ring (2002) and movies that adapt television series, such as Get Smart (2008). In television, examples include shows that translate programmes for a new national market, such as The Office: An American Workplace (2005), shows that adapt material from the cinema, such as the animated series Robocop: Alpha Commando (1998), and spin-offs from original TV shows such as The Bionic Woman (1976). In addition to these examples, Scope welcomes all approaches to adaptation in its broadest sense.
All reviews and inquiries should be sent to Alex Symons, the editor of film and television reviews: firstname.lastname@example.org
