Call For Papers: Faith and Spirituality in World Cinema

CFP--Faith and Spirituality in World Cinema (8/1/2007; collection)

Institutional grant funding has been secured to custom publish an anthology of new essays dealing with the depiction of religious faith or spirituality in world cinema. The editors seek proposals for critically informed, previously unpublished essays that explore the representation of faith and spirituality in canonical works of film. Although all proposals are welcome, essays dealing with one or more of the following directors are especially solicited:

--Michelangelo Antonioni

--Ingmar Bergman

--Robert Bresson

--Luis Buñuel

--Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne

--Carl Theodor Dreyer

--Krzysztof Kieslowski

--Akira Kurosawa

--Yasujiro Ozu

--Roberto Rossellini

--Andrei Tarkovsky.

Essays should demonstrate a familiarity with the reception history or critical dialogue surrounding the director(s) or film(s) being discussed, but they should avoid being openly derivative.

The deadline for proposals is August 1, 2007.

Electronic submissions are welcome.

Please direct proposals, submissions, or questions to:
