Just a reminder that the deadline for the 'Wes Anderson and Co.' CFP is next
week (December 1).

The ‘New Review of Film and Television Studies’ (Routledge) plans to publish
a special issue on Wes Anderson.

Academic papers that explore Anderson’s films from the following
perspectives are particularly welcome:




Narrative/Screenplay structure

Economic analysis (funding, box office figures)

Reputation building (entry into Hollywood via the making of off-beat
comedies destined for the film festival circuit)

Soundtrack analysis, or

Thematic/interpretive analysis (Anderson’s films seem to be dominated by
failed father figures and isolated eccentric characters who form an
unconventional community, etc).

We also welcome papers that consider Anderson’s collaborators (the Wilson
Brothers, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Noah Baumbach, etc.).

Papers can either focus on individual films or take Anderson’s films as a
whole. In addition, we seek papers that situate Anderson within a broader
context, what Jesse Fox Mayshark calls ‘Post-Pop Cinema’ (in his book of the
same name), Mark Olsen (in Film Comment) calls the post-ironic ‘New
Sincerity’, and Derek Hill, more vaguely, calls the ‘American New Wave’ of
Spike Jonze, David O. Russell, Richard Linklater, Sofia Coppola, Paul Thomas
Anderson, Alexander Payne, Michel Gondry, and Charlie Kaufman.

Please email a 200 word abstract to the editor, Warren Buckland:

by December 1, 2010

Authors will be notified by December 15 if their paper has been selected.

Submission date for completed papers is August 15 2011 and will be published
sometime in 2012 as a special issue of the ‘New Review of Film and
Television Studies’.
