*Call for Papers and more about FILM CRITICISM*

We are currently seeking submissions to be published on a rolling basis in
future issues.

FC is a peer-reviewed publication now in its 40th year of continuous
publication, making it the third oldest academic film journal in the United
States.  Our aim is to bring together work in the field of film and media
studies that foregrounds textual criticism as a primary value. Our
readership is generally academic, but we strive to publish material that is
accessible to a broader popular audience.

While our title suggests a focus on film, we are equally interested in
articles that engage moving-image media of all forms, such as television or
online video. FC is also committed to developing criticism that derives
from a cultural studies tradition -- that is, criticism that situates media
texts in a political context and recognizes the role culture plays in
reproducing and maintaining social and power relations.
