Digital imageries: culture and reception call for papers

*Call for papers: Digital imageries: culture and reception

The deadline for submissions for this double issue is August 1st, 2008

Founded at the Université de Montréal, Kinephanos (www.kinephanos.ca) is a bilingual inter-university web-based journal. Focusing on questions involving cinema and popular media, Kinephanos encourages interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research. The journal's primary
interests are movies and popular TV series, video games, emerging technologies and fan cultures. The preferred approaches include cinema studies, communication theories, religion sciences, philosophy, cultural studies and media studies.

Kinephanos' first issue aims to explore and understand how digital technologies change the communication relations between the object and the subject. As a double issue, "Digital imageries: culture and reception" will also be devoted to the different influences digital
technologies have brought to cinema and other forms of audiovisual expression, such as television, animation and video games. In addition the articles must incorporate ideas pertaining to the spectator's and/or gamer's reception. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

- Remediation of film's aesthetics outside of cinema

- The new cinematographic experience and the challenge of archival

- Case study: critical reception of a digital movie (Speed Racer, Beowulf, 28 Days Later, etc.)

- Popular culture, virtual community and collective intelligence

- The video game trailer : trompe-l'oeil and out-of-bounds

- Who wants digital?

- Japanese animation: web and fansubbing

- Film and digital projection… or fiction!

- Digital legitimation

While Kinephanos privileges publication of thematic issues, we strongly encourage writers to submit articles exceeding the theme which will be published in each issue.
