>Call for papers: "German Media Studies," a thematic issue of CLCWeb:
>Comparative Literature and Culture

>Viehoff (U of Halle-Wittenberg), will contain English-language papers
>on/about media studies in German-language countries. All aspects and
>perspectives of German media studies are welcome.
>One of the objectives of the thematic issue is to put German media
>studies on the map: as it happens, in media studies the flow of
>knowledge occurs to a higher extent in English from North America to
>Germany than the other way around while at the same time it is certain
>that German media studies has acquired a high level of scholarship over
>the years. It is for this purpose, namely to facilitate knowledge
>transfer that this thematic issue of CLCWeb is to be published for. In
>addition, as a public-access online publication, German Media Studies
>is in the mode of new media technology and thus the material of the
>issue will be accessible to a large readership.
>Please note that CLCWeb's practice is to publish new work; however,
>owing to the topic of the thematic issue translations of work already
>published in German are welcome. The length of a paper is 6000 words,
>in the MLA format (parenthetical sources, a works cited, and no
>footnotes or end notes; for CLCWeb's style guide please go to
><http://clcwebjournal.lib.purdue.edu/proced2.html>). Quotes from German
>are presented in English translation with the German original following
>the English translation.
>A 200-word abstract of the paper and a biographical abstract are also
