Call for Papers: A Special Issue on “Masculinities and Film

The Human (issn: 2147-9739) is an international and interdisciplinary indexed journal that publishes articles written in the fields of literatures in English (British, American, Irish, etc.), classical and modern Turkish literature, drama studies, and comparative literature (where the pieces bridge literature of a country with Turkish literature). To learn more about The Human: Journal of Literature and Culture and its principles, please see our manifesto on this page: http://www.humanjournal.org/index.php/about-the-human-manifesto

The Human is now inviting submissions for a special issue to be published in June 2016. The special issue will be devoted to the performance of masculinities on film in all of its diverse forms and multiplicity of cultural, social and historical situations. Interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged, as are treatments that deal with global (both Western and non-Western) film or that bridge East and West. Less-covered subjects are most welcome. Areas of inquiry can include documentary, feature film, short film, and/or animation, focusing attention on the visual landscape of masculinity in world cinema and exploring the social, political and economic value of masculinities within global film production.

Successful submissions will demonstrate originality, rigor and persuasive argumentation. View further details on the journal’s website: http://www.humanjournal.org/index.php/call-for-works.
