About Projections

Projections: The Journal for Movies and Mind is an interdisciplinary,
peer-reviewed journal that explores the ways in which recent advancements in
fields such as psychoanalysis, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, genetics
and evolution help to increase our understanding of film, and how film
itself facilitates investigations into the nature and function of the mind.
The journal also incorporates articles on the visual arts and new
technologies related to film. The aims of the journal are to explore these
subjects, facilitate a dialogue between people in the sciences and the
humanities, and bring the study of film to the forefront of contemporary
intellectual debate.
