Fonseca: Journal of Communication has made a Call for Papers for a monographic issue to be published in december 2015. The title is “Cinema: renaming itself. Nuevas definiciones en el cine contemporáneo”, and it’s coordinated by Margarita Ledo Andión (Professor at Universidade de Santiago de Compostela and coordinator of Grupo de Estudos Audiovisuais) and Begoña Gutiérrez San Miguel (Tenured Lecturer at Universidad de Salamanca).
As a reference briefing for proposals, the publication offers the following:
“Cinema: the itself remake” or how, from cinema, arises the need of adjectives to indicate the need of building an “I”, a different subject. What does it mean, nowadays, the connotation, the change of meaning that activates when we talk about “migrant cinema”, “collaborative cinema”, “national cinema”, “feminist cinema”, “class cinema”, “identity cinema”… or pairs as “cinema and inclusion”? How does it articulate with something as accepted (and, for sure, not very put into practice) as Diversity? What practices/what applications and actions demands the mise en scene of these cinemas? How does thought intertwine with these variations that include, as well, different systems of knowledge?”
The deadline for the reception of papers is july 1 2015, and must be sent to the Journal’s address (firstname.lastname@example.org) as well as to director and editor Begoña Gutiérrez San Miguel (email@example.com). Papers will be peer reviewed and must follow the Journal standards, available in this link.
