Call for Submissions

The International Journal of Screendance, Volume 3, ‘After Deren’.

The editorial board of the International Journal of Screendance is pleased to announce a call for submissions for our third issue to be published Spring 2013.

October 2011 marked the 50th anniversary of the death of Maya Deren. In recognition of Deren’s considerable legacy as a filmmaker, theorist and experimental instigator of a choreographic cinema, we invite artists and scholars to join us in engaging with the continued relevance of her art in relation to contemporary debates, themes, and practices. We welcome proposals for essays and feature articles exploring the resonance of Deren’s filmmaking, writings and advocacies in the context of 21st century visual culture and critical theory. We also encourage wider reflections on related contemporary issue by artists, curators and choreographers working within media and time based practices.

Submission of papers (3000 – 5000 words) or artists’ pages (1000 – 1500 words) in the first instance to guest editor Elinor Cleghorn at elinorcleghorn@gmail.com. Submission deadline extended to 20th July 2012.
