Call for Papers
Special Journal Issue on European Cinema, 2011
The editors of Alphaville: Online Graduate Journal of Film and Media Studies seek additional articles for its in-progress inaugural issue to be published online in 2011.
Alphaville is a new, fully peer-reviewed, biannual graduate journal that is committed to publishing fresh and original research in the fields of film and media studies. The Editorial Board is comprised of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers at University College Cork. It is the first of its kind in Ireland, and will be launched in early 2011.
The International Advisory Board consists of some of the most renowned academics working in film studies today, and already includes:
Ruth Barton (Trinity College Dublin)
Stefano Baschiera (Queens University Belfast)
Stella Bruzzi (Warwick)
Maeve Connolly (Dun Laoghaire)
Angela Dalle Vacche (Georgia IT)
Derek Duncan (Bristol)
Catherine Fowler (Otago)
Mattias Frey (Kent)
Kathrina Glitre (West of England)
Mette Hjort (Lingnan)
Ewa Mazierska (Central Lancashire)
Toby Miller (California, Riverside)
Barry Monahan (Cork)
Diane Negra (University College Dublin)
Dana Polan (Tisch, New York)
Laura Rascaroli (Cork)
John David Rhodes (Sussex)
Michael Witt (Roehampton)
Gwenda Young (Cork)
The inaugural issue, which is currently in progress, stems thematically from a recent international graduate conference held at University College Cork in May 2010, ‘Transnational, Transcultural, Transmedial: European Cinema Today’. The editors welcome abstracts for articles that fall under this rubric, and that would complement an already diverse collection. We are particularly interested in articles that explore the interrelationships of European cinema with regard to geography (transnational), culture (transcultural) and form (transmedial), either through close readings of specific texts or through broader considerations of practice in both past and contemporary European filmmaking and film theory.
Areas include, but are not limited to:
- Trans-/Inter-mediality in film
- Experimental and avant-garde film
- Documentary and non-fiction
- National/transnational/international cinema
- Cinema from Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean, Nordic countries, or small nations
- European-American intersections, European-Asian intersections
- Representations of ethnic/cultural diversity
- Music, sound, and language in film
Potential contributors are invited to submit an article abstract (300 words), along with a short bibliography and an up-to-date CV to the editors by 19 November 2010 and at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
The editors’ decision will follow swiftly. Following acceptance, authors will be required to submit their articles by 24 January 2011. Completed articles submitted for peer-review should be 5000-6000 words in length and follow MLA style.
Please contact the editors, Abigail Keating, Jill Murphy and Aidan Power, with any queries at the above email address.
The journal website is currently under construction. All relevant details including style sheet and submission guidelines will be sent to authors directly via email.
