Mon Jun 04 19:30:18 GMT 2018

CFP - First call for papers

The Political Economy of Local Cinema in the Digital Age: a critical approach

Deadline for abstracts:  JUNE 17

The digitalization and globalization of cultural markets present formidable challenges for local cinema. In this project the focus is on political economy or, more precisely, on the organization of the resources for the production, distribution and consumption of local cinema. For this collection, we seek contributions that engage with the way digitalization and globalization combine in challenging the commercial viability and in some cases the mere existence of local cinema as a distinctive form of storytelling.

While we encourage prospective authors to adopt a broad variety of perspectives, we especially welcome submissions that:

Look at local cinema from the analytical approach of critical political economy;

Engage with problems concerning the funding and sustainability of local cinema;

Problematize the effects of digitalization and globalization on local cinema and local audiences;

Adopts the normative standpoint of minorities;

Discuss the role of education in the actual and possible responses to the challenges of digitalization and globalization to local cinema;

The provisional schedule of this project is the following:

Deadline for abstracts: June 17

Communication of abstract acceptance and invitation to submit the full paper:  by June 24

Deadline for the submission of full papers:  September 30

Decisions concerning the acceptance of the full paper and the return of first drafts to authors with comment from reviewers:  by November 4

December 2 – Deadline for the second draft.

Publication is scheduled early in 2019
