Call for Contributors: The Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism (FILM ENTRIES)

Editorial Board: Rahul Sapra (Subject Editor), Aaron Gerow, Juan Antonio Suarez.


The Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism is an online comprehensive resource that will provide definitions and essays on terms associated with modernism. The REM presently seeks contributors to write entries on film and modernism. All entries will be peer-reviewed, edited, and appear as signed contributions in the REM. Due to its online format, the REM can accommodate multi-media content as well as textual content, and contributors are encouraged to seek out material already on the web or which they have permission to upload to supplement their entries. Such content will set the REM apart from other encyclopedias and greatly enhance the effectiveness of its resources.


FILM and MODERNISM: This is an encyclopedia entry, so please try to convey to an inexperienced reader the basics of your topic, its significance and its place within FILM and MODERNISM. We are maintaining a broad definition of modernism, but in your entry do try to devote at least a sentence or section to the relevance of your entry topic to the larger question of modernism.


Please contact the Managing Editorial Advisor for the Entry with a short CV. The deadline for submitting the entries is 31 October, 2013. (Please use the email address of the Managing Editorial Advisor provided next to the entry).

The Entries are divided into TWO sections: ‘GENERAL ENTRIES’ (on cinema) followed by entries on individual films, ‘FILM ENTRIES’.

General Call for Contributors: The Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism

(General Editor, Stephen Ross, University of Victoria)

The Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism is an online comprehensive resource that will provide definitions and essays on terms associated with modernism and/or the avant-garde across music, dance, theatre, film, architecture, literature, philosophy and social theory, and visual arts, around the globe and across whatever spans of time necessitated to include all that can be considered modern/modernist/avant-garde. The guiding principle is inclusion of everything that may be called modern(ist) across the arts and around the world, with little concern for strict periodization or a narrow set of aesthetic criteria by which to identify what belongs. The REM aims to meet the various modernisms across the arts on their own terms (recognizing perhaps first and foremost that "modernism" may not be among them).
