>Articles are now being sought for a special issue of Studies in European
>Cinema that will focus on the theme 'Women and Contemporary Cinema', to
>be published as the Winter 2006 issue of the journal.
>
>In an era which has often been described as post-feminist, is the
>question of women and film still one that needs posing, or has the
>'woman problem' now been adequately resolved? Film studies continues to
>debate the interaction of women and cinema, but have the representations
>and the involvement of women in film changed so very much? While some
>commentators might argue (or simply wish) that the question of women and
>cinema is no longer relevant, this appears to be an opportune time to
>take stock and review where we have got to now that the dust has
>supposedly settled. The specific focus for this special issue of Studies
>in European Cinema is contemporary European cinema, that which can be
>considered to have been produced in an arguably post-feminist era. The
>issue as a whole seeks to shed some light on the extent to which women
>as subject and object interact with European cinema today, and the
>degree to which this interaction has negotiated not only the social,
>political and cultural transformations affecting women in the past but
>also our perceptions of women and film after the extensive development
>of feminist film studies.
>
>We are therefore seeking papers from female scholars in the field, in
>the first instance, on the premise that women's own approach to European
>film is prioritised and that women should be the leading movers in any
>ongoing debate. Papers may address any aspects of women in contemporary
>European cinema. The notion of 'contemporary' in this instance refers
>primarily to the cinema of the past twenty years, and those submitting
>papers should confine themselves to this frame. Submissions should be
>sent to the guest editor, Dr. Ann Davies (electronic format in Word
>preferred). Style guidelines for submissions can be found at
><http://www.intellectbooks.com>www.intellectbooks.com. The deadline 
>for submissions is 1 April 2006.

>Studies in European Cinema provides an outlet for research into any

>celebrating the rich and diverse cultural heritage across the continent.
>The journal is distinctive in bringing together a range of contexts -
>the cultural, historical, textual and many others. The journal is
>concerned with discussing all subjects relating to European cinema: its
>scope encompasses the history, cultures, identities, styles, forms and
>audiences of Europe, its directors, actors, cinematographers, composers
>and technicians.
