>MALE BODIES IN GLOBAL CINEMA: CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
>[Deadline proposals: 01/12/06]
>
>The representation of the body has been extensively discussed in Film Studies
>since the 1970s. Following an initial emphasis on the study of the
>representation of the female body, work in this 
>area in the last two decades or
>so has turned its attention also to masculinity. Yet, with a few exceptions,
>most of this work to date has focused on Hollywood. This volume seeks to
>readdress the balance by offering as wide and representative a picture of the
>depiction of the male body in contemporary cinema as possible. Contributions
>can focus on specific countries or ethnicities and can analyse key actors,
>directors or films or offer a more diverse overview, but the emphasis will be
>on cinema produced in the last twenty years.
>
>Contributions on the representation of the Asian male body in Japanese, Korean
>and British cinemas and on the representation of the male body in Spanish and
>British cinemas have been already commissioned. Contributions on any other
>nationalities or ethnicities are welcome, but 
>the following will take priority:
>
>- Australian cinema
>- Chinese cinema
>- Cinemas of Western and Southern European countries (especially France,
>Germany and Italy)
>- Post 1989 Eastern European cinemas
>- Cinemas of the states of the former Soviet Union
>- Cinema from the Indian subcontinent
>- Latin American cinemas (especially Argentinean, Brazilian, Cuban and
>Mexican)
>- Middle Eastern cinema
>
