Dear SCREEN-L colleagues,
Below is a link to a news item about 'We Need to Talk about Maternal Melodrama', a new publication at SEQUENCE Serial Studies in Media, Film and Music<http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/sequence/> (part of the open access REFRAME<http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/> platform in Media, Film and Music), as well as a Call for Papers in response to, or in connection with, the topics raised by the lead article, an essay by Sue Thornham.<http://www.sussex.ac.uk/mediaandfilm/people/list/person/166435> The title of Thornham's essay is ‘”A HATRED SO INTENSE…”: We Need to Talk about Kevin, Postfeminism and Women’s Cinema<http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/sequence2/archive/sequence-2-1/>’.
If you work on film or media representations of motherhood, or melodrama, and you think you’d like to respond to, bounce off of, or otherwise fruitfully interact with Thornham’s work, or with its topics more broadly, SEQUENCE<http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/sequence/> would be very excited to hear from you. You can read more about responding here<http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/sequence2/about-sequence-two/>.
