1. Film Matters: Women in Cinema

Call for Undergraduate Papers on the Theme "Women in Cinema"

Film Matters, published by Intellect Press, is seeking papers written by 
undergraduate film scholars for issue 1.4 (2010).  For more information 
about Film Matters, please visit:



Calls for papers are open to any undergraduate student, currently 
enrolled at an institution of higher learning worldwide and working 
towards a bachelor's degree in any field. Recent graduates are also 
eligible, providing they submit to a call the deadline for which occurs 
within six months from their graduation date. Any original piece of 
written scholarship related to the theme of "women in cinema" and 
involving film criticism, history, or theory will be considered for 
publication. By submitting a paper for this themed call, authors are 
certifying that: (1) they are undergraduate students, currently enrolled 
at an institution of higher learning and working towards a bachelor's 
degree (or they are recent graduates of six months or less from the date 
of the call deadline); and (2) their submitted essays are original 
pieces of written scholarship, authored solely by them, and have not 
been published in any form, in any publication, heretofore.

Submissions should be written in English and range from 2500 to 4000 
words in length, with 3000 words being the ideal target. They should be 
scholarly in nature, with references to research formatted according to 
MLA guidelines (7^th edition). Furthermore, they should make a 
well-supported argument and not simply report. Please limit your 
submissions to one per author, per call.

After a prescreening, submissions will undergo a blind peer review 
process, typical of scholarly journals.  Referee comments will be 
returned to those authors who progress beyond the prescreening; 
unfortunately, due to the high number of submissions, the editorial 
board is unable to provide comments to those papers that do not make it 
past this point.  Authors of accepted papers will be expected to work 
closely with the FM editorial board to revise their pieces prior to 
publication. Please include a cover sheet, which includes the author's 
name, title of essay, institutional affiliation, and contact 
information; all other identifying information should be removed from 
the body of the text, in order to aid the blind peer review process.

Please email submissions as Microsoft Word email attachments to Liza 
Palmer ([log in to unmask] 
Submissions should be received by February 1, 2010.  Questions should be 
referred to Liza Palmer.
