The Mise-en-scène editorial team is pleased to announce an open call for papers for the journal’s premiere issue. Debuting in the fall of 2016, Issue 1:1 will be a multimodal showcase for mise-en-scène scholarship that encompasses the latest research and theoretical concerns in film and media studies. Given the journal’s mandate to renew discourse around one of screen culture’s most ubiquitous yet indefinable terms, the submissions for this and all subsequent calls are to be mise-en-scène centric. Analysis of the image, frame or screen capture must play an essential role in each manuscript.

Authors are welcome to submit their work in one of the categories detailed under Section Policies. Topic areas may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cinematic aestheticism
  • Film spectatorship
  • Frame narratology
  • Auteur theory
  • Mise-en-scène across the disciplines
  • Pedagogical approaches to film and media studies
  • Film/video as a branch of digital humanities research
  • Adaptation studies
  • Genre studies
  • Transmedia
  • Fandom studies

The deadline for submissions is July 30, 2016.

Interested in submitting to this call? Review the Author Guidelines and then proceed to the registration portal to begin the process. 

All inquiries regarding this call can be director to the Editor-in-Chief, Greg Chan, available at
