CinemaS Journal of Contemporary Film
Edited by Myrto Konstantarakos, Middlesex University

CinemaS is a new, refereed academic journal devoted to the study
of contemporary film around the world. Recent developments have
brought about a renewal of film industries in the Far and Middle
East, Africa, Europe and America. However, there is a marked
tendency to focus exclusively upon issues of otherness and
marginality, thereby ignoring the specificities of these films.
CinemaS aims to challenge this hegemonic value judgement and to
explore approaches that posit the egalitarian value of cinema.
This journal breaks down barriers and places World cinema on
an equal footing with the `mainstream' by creating a space where
'marginal' voices can find a vehicle for expression.

The journal will be launched with a conference on `Re-Viewing
the Popular' in November 2001. 5,000-5,500 word papers are
invited on this topic or any aspect of contemporary film.
Submissions in Arabic, French, German, Italian, Latvian,
Persian, Russian, Spanish and Turkish are welcome but, if
approved, they will be translated by contributors.
