                   FILM AND PHILOSOPHY, the journal of the
       Society for the Philosophic Study of the Contemporary Visual Arts
invites your papers for Volume III.  We welcome work from any perspective and
on any topic which you believe would be of interest to our readers; our only
requirement is that your work use film in a significant way and that it make a
philosophically interesting point.  As you will see from the wide range of
works in the first two Volumes, we interpret the term "philosophical" in a
very inclusive sense.
Papers should be sent to the editor:
     Kendall D'Andrade
Department of Philosophy, Shawnee State University, Portsmouth, OH 45662, USA
or to the Society's treasurer:
     Fred Seddon
23 Mt. Oliver Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15210-1745, USA
Deadline: May 31st.
Publication expected in September or October.
                               The SPSCVA Review
invites your shorter works in the area of film and philosophy.  The _Review_
publishes all our normal book reviews; length limit: 500 words.  If you have a
book you would like to review, please communicate with the editor --
Kendall D'Andrade at the address above or by E-mail at  [log in to unmask]
The _Review_ also considers shorter discussions of single films or groups of
films as well as essays on any film-related topic; length limit: 1500 words.
These may also be sent to the editor.  The _Review_ is published three or four
times a year, with the aim of printing all works which have been accepted up
to about 2 weeks before publication.
We particularly invite discussion of one or more of the essays in the
collection _Philosophy and Film_ edited by Thomas Wartenberg and Cynthia
Freeland (Routledge, 1995).  If there are a sufficient number of these
discussions Volume V, number 3 of the Review will be devoted entirely to them.
         We also invite you to join the SPSCVA, the Society for the
Philosophic Study of the Contemporary Visual Arts.  Dues are $10 per year;
please send them to the treasurer:
     Fred Seddon
     Treasurer: SPSCVA, 23 Mt. Oliver St., Pittsburgh, PA 15210-1745, USA
For your $10 you receive one Volume of our journal FILM AND PHILOSOPHY (it's
an annual) and a year's worth of the SPSCVA Review.  Please tell Fred which
Volume you wish your membership to start with, I or II.  If you elect to
receive both volumes we will include, somewhat like a signing bonus, the first
four volumes of the predecessor to the _SPSCVA Review_, our newsletter.
We also accept Visa and MasterCard, which may ease currency conversion costs.
If you wish, you may subscribe for more than one year; we will accept up to
three years in advance.          There is no surcharge for non-USA mailings.
To give you some idea of what you're buying, I've appended the tables of
contents for Volumes II and I.
