New Series in Literature, Film, and Theory Challenges Critical Frames
Cambria Press announces an exciting series in Literature, Film and Theory. Works in this series will be critically innovative, diverse in subject-matter, and challenging to existing critical frames. Proposals that engender progressive debate in the fields of literary and/or cultural theory are welcome, as are author-specific, or film-maker-specific studies that deal with their subjects in critically original ways. The series does not align itself to any one particular critical or cultural frame; rather it reflects an aspiration to move beyond the limits of singular categories in order to explore how many ways of reading can intersect in fruitful ways. The following is a sample list of authors in whom we are particularly interested although we welcome alternative suggestions:
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The series also hopes to attract critical books on film-makers, particularly those who have perpetually expanded the aesthetic horizons of their medium and who have contributed to an ever-expanding filmic vocabulary. Please submit your proposal for this series.
