Drs. Salvador Murguia and Sean O’reilly (Akita International University) extend a Call for Contributors for the Encyclopedia of Cuban Cinema Film:
Description/Guidelines: This volume takes up the topic of Cuban Cinema from its early days of film production to the present. Covering over 300 entries that include films, producers, directors, actresses, actors, genres and critical interpretations, the breadth and depth of this volume will generate some highly significant material for both academics, as well as general audiences. The first of its kind—indeed there are no other encyclopedias that cover this topic anywhere on the market—The Encyclopedia of Cuban Cinema is a timely pop cultural companion to the ever-growing field of critical film studies.
This volume is under contract with Rowman and Littlefield and is anticipated to go into press 2019. In this way, we will be encouraging relatively quick turn-arounds.
If you’re interested in contributing, please send me an email with the subject line “Cuban Cinema,” and we’ll forward the list of entries (it is not a comprehensive list and we’ll be open to further suggestions). Entries will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.
In addition we’re asking that you provide a brief curriculum vitae or summary of your educational background and/or writing experience. As we would like to cast the net wide in attracting authors from a variety of disciplines and professions, advanced graduate students and junior faculty are particularly welcome to contribute.
At the moment we are two volume editors (Salvador Jiménez Murguia and Sean O’reilly) but will be welcoming a third editor with a specialization in Cuban media shortly. Until we have confirmed those details, please direct all inquiries to Dr. Sean O’reilly at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
