*Spectator **Call for Papers*

*The Wild Image*

*Spectator 36.2 (Fall 2016)*

* The moving image, emerging when it did as a technology of modernity, has
often been described using the terminology of modernity: for instance, the
contested metaphor of the classical Hollywood studio system as a factory.
Yet, moving image technologies have historically been equally fascinated
with recording (or creating) the wild, the exotic, the uncontrollable, and
the untamed. What does it mean to make a “wild” image? How do such images
circulate (or how have such images circulated historically)? What potential
meanings emerge from these images? This issue of **Spectator seeks papers
that explore the theme of wildness and often apparently paradoxical
mediations on it. While “wildness” is interpreted broadly here, of
particular interest are studies that examine the production, distribution,
and dissemination of wildness in both historical and contemporary media
from the perspective of industry studies, political economy, or animal
studies. Spectator also seeks reviews of books related to these areas.*

*Deadline for Submission: November 20th, 2015*

above topics in the following areas are now invited for submission:

   of the Rings* franchises)
   - Livestream feeds of zoo animals or natural locations
