10th Anniversary of Studies in Russian and Soviet Cinema: Call for Papers for a Themed Issue on “Women in Cinema”

10th Anniversary of Studies in Russian and Soviet Cinema:
Call for Papers for a Themed Issue on “Women in Cinema”

It seems only a short while ago that Studies in Russian and Soviet Cinema (SRSC) was launched, and here we are, ten years on! SRSC has “grown up” and established itself as a scholarly journal of high ranking.

Whilst we welcome regular submissions of individual papers for publication in volume 10 (2016), we wish to mark our birthday with a themed issue on “Women in Cinema”. The theme appears topical with the rise of the number of high-profile filmmakers and producers in recent years, but also numerous historical perspectives that offer themselves for investigation under this angle. Papers on actresses, female costume designers, women filmmakers and producers – past or present, are welcome. The cluster will appear in issue 10.3 (November 2016) and we would like to have submissions by 1 April 2016.

The address for submission is birgit.beumers@gmail.com

SRSC operates a rigid, anonymous double peer review system, and is indexed by Scopus, MLA International Bibliography, International Index to Film Periodicals, British Humanities Index and Film & Television Literature Index. The number of electronic library subscriptions is on the rise. All this is thanks to a wonderful team of co-editors, the fabulous support of the editorial and advisory boards, and an amazing production team at Taylor&Francis.

ASEEES (formerly AAASS) members can claim a 30% discount on personal subscriptions to the journal. For further details follow this link and scroll to the bottom of the page

‘Rethinking Revolutions’ - London School of Economics - 26th May 2017

Over the past twenty years, the study of revolution has lost the centrality it once enjoyed. Yet the study of revolutions has never been so important: in thinking through the aftermath of the Arab uprisings, exploring the ideology of ISIS and other Islamist groups, understanding self-proclaimed revolutionary movements in the West, and interpreting the experience of states that continue to see themselves as revolutionary, such as China, Iran, and Cuba. The study of revolution needs to catch up with the actual experience of revolutionary movements and states.

One barrier to this endeavor is the fracturing of the study of revolutions into different disciplines and sub-fields. This workshop seeks to bring together scholars and students working on revolutions from different disciplinary backgrounds (e.g. Sociology, International Relations, History, and Political Science), sub-fields (e.g. social movements…
