*Description and scope of the books*
What does it mean to stand at the intersections? What can this mean for
the process of filmmaking? In the last decade, the dynamism of practice
as/in research has been growing in diverse disciplines. The
possibilities of filmmaking practice as/in research have created new and
innovative ways of inquiry both within and outside of the academy. The
process of making knowledge through filmmaking has been discussed in
several publications. In addition, studies in creative practice as a
mode of research have emanated from the fields of art, design, and
performance studies. However, in screen practice as a mode of research,
there has been no substantial study that focuses on the notions of
‘difference’ and othering’. By extension, there is also a paucity of
published material that offers accounts of professional screen practice,
where creative and practical decision-making intersects with any aspects
These books will draw attention to the creative processes, encounters,
relationships and thinking when such things hinge on the experiences,
truths, memories, places, feelings, contexts and histories associated
with difference and othering. By examining ‘difference’ in screen
production through a range of diverse, professional and situated
practices, the books will engage with the implications and nature of
audio/visuality, aesthetics, storytelling, and styles, as well as
methodologies, ethics, philosophies and research in the production process.
These publications bring screen practitioners (outside of the academy)
and screen practitioners-researchers (inside the academy) together, to
discuss how knowledge, both practical and theoretical, grows inside
experience. The books embrace but go beyond representation and identity
to deal with on-the-ground questions that screen
practitioners/researchers ask (or could and should ask) at the
intersections, about the nature of professional practice and experience.
*/At the Intersections: Race, Indigeneity, and Diaspora in Screen
Production Research /*investigates instances where screen practice as a
mode of research and/or professional practice intersects with experience
and knowledge associated with migration, indigeneity, diaspora, race,
ethnicity or socio-cultural diversity. The book explores the complex,
cumulative ways in which the effects of these multiple forms intersect
with the experiences, thoughts, and knowledge of screen practitioners
and/or researchers, the screen texts they create, as well as the
methodologies, philosophies, contexts and processes they encounter and
The book draws on the thinking of screen practitioners and/or
researchers whose research and/or creative experience is characterised
by living between two or more cultural regimes of knowledge or who

*/At the Intersections: Ageing, Disability, Sexuality, and Gender in
Screen Production Research/*engages with the notion of ‘difference’ by
focusing on the areas where screen practice as a mode of research and/or
professional practice intersects with experience and knowledge
associated with ageing, disability, sexuality or gender. The book
explores methodologies, philosophies, knowledge-making and creative
processes of screen practice when encountered and constructed at
intersections between dominant representation and enablement, and
minority regimes of knowledge
and lived experience.
Deadline for abstracts is: 30 September, 2020.
The need for these books has been signalled by a number of leading
publishers and we are currently in the process of negotiating contracts.
Please provide a 250-word abstract and a short bio (100 words) by the
30th of September 2020.
Draft chapters (between 3000-7000 words) will be due in the first half
of 2021. We encourage screen practitioners and practitioner-scholars
(including postgraduate students) from diverse cultures, backgrounds and
locations who engage with aspects of ‘difference’ to submit abstracts.
Considered media may include cinematic and experimental films,
television, web series, screenplays, mobile works and video installation.
