Out 1 Film Journal CFP: Screening the Cinematic and/on New Screens, August 2009

Out 1 Film Journal
Call For Proposals
“Screening the Cinematic and/on New Screens”
August 2009

Deadline for abstracts: June 30, 2009
Deadline for acceptance information: July 5, 2009
Deadline for final papers: August 1, 2009

Given the constantly changing landscape of visual culture, Out 1 Film Journal seeks proposals for a month long survey of this ever shifting landscape. Whether analysis of work primarily viewed on non-traditional screens (films, videos, home videos, music videos, YouTube sensations etc. seen on the internet, gallery, rooftop, etc.) or larger theoretical explorations of visual dynamics, viewership, public/private space, etc. with specific methodological emphasis on how we watch.

All related topics are welcome. 15-20 proposals will be chosen and published over the month of August in what we hope will become an online symposium of sorts, with discussion and active involvement of each writer and all readers with comments, email exchanges, etc. All writers chosen will be published by the journal and retain copyright for their material. Please include a resume or CV with all submissions. Articles are expected to be at least 2500 words. Serious submissions only please. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Also, please distribute or link to this CFP. The more submissions we receive the stronger this will be. Whether your proposal is accepted or not, or even if you don't submit anything, we hope everyone participates in this unique online symposium.
