The Projector is developing a special (potentially double) issue on the evolving roles of television and film in the twenty-first century. The issue(s) will feature research that illuminates cultural, aesthetic, or material aspects of contemporary popular media, which is created, interpreted, and recreated in an environment filled with interactive channels, where films, television-streaming programming, and news of the day are “events” shaped by forces ranging from corporate entities to celebrities to active members of participatory culture.

The issue(s) will provide a venue for scholarship that can shed new light, for example, on television-streaming platforms (broadcast, cable, niche and mainstream online sites), which supply all types of producers and viewers with venues for news, entertainment, and their vision of quality drama or oppositional cultural expression, while the American film industry, working with an array of international artists, entrepreneurs, and global censors, increasingly moves towards immersive sensory experiences and the multivalent franchise/transmedia storytelling well suited to postmodern participatory audiences.  

The special issue(s) could be a venue for scholarly contributions in other forms, including: short research essays, pedagogical essays on using popular media, book reviews, or interviews with practitioners, etc. Contact C. Baron with questions about these options.

The Projector is a peer-reviewed journal with an international editorial board; the blind, peer-review policy requires that authors’ names not appear within essays. Submissions must be double-spaced (no additional space between paragraphs), and use American English spelling. Research articles should be about 20-25 pages. They must use current MLA in-text and works cited citation. See for full submission guidelines.

Submissions should be emailed to as Word files before October 15, 2015. Submit essays as an email attachments, with essay titles and contact information in the message.
