C47: A Film Journal
call for papers on filmmaker gus van sant
Deadline: Rolling, with first reviews 6/15/2015

C47: A Film Journal is a new journal of film and media studies produced by Portland State University and Ooligan Press. The journal is refereed and will publish twice annually online and in hard copy; all accepted papers will be compensated with a modest honorarium. Our first projected publication date is fall 2015, and we are currently seeking submissions for our inaugural issue, focused on Portland filmmaker Gus Van Sant.

We are seeking essays from theoretical and critical perspectives on any aspect of Van Sant’s work, including cinematography, visual style, music, and socio-critical elements of his work. The incorporation of contemporary critical modes of analysis is encouraged, including but not limited to psychoanalytic, structural, post-structural, formalist, gender, feminist, queer theory, and pro- and anti-auteurist perspectives.

Essays should run from 5,000 to 9,000 words and follow The Chicago Manual of Style. We encourage the submission of in-depth essays of any kind; academic, mainstream, and cross-disciplinary approaches are all welcome.
All submissions should be made electronically in .doc or .docx format. We will notify authors of their article’s acceptance status within ten weeks after receipt. Please send your submissions to Dr. Michael J. Clark at
If you have any additional questions, please contact Dr. Clark at the above address or Zach Eggemeyer at

We look forward to hearing from you.
