Seeking submissions for an upcoming anthology on race and classical
Hollywood cinema (1927 to the 1960s). The anthology is intended to follow
THE BIRTH OF WHITENESS: RACE AND THE EMERGENCE OF U.S. CINEMA (1996),
edited by Daniel Bernardi, which deals with early and silent cinema.
Of particular interest are articles that address the production code, genre
conventions, reception, landmark films such as GONE WITH THE WIND and THE
SEARCHERS, and from methodologies as diverse as social history, cultural
studies, psychoanalysis, and close textual analysis.
Manuscripts should be 25-40 pages in length, double-spaced, in MLA style.
Please send preliminary proposals, questions, and all completed work to:
