Film Studies For Free brings you very glad tidings of two more graduate E-journals: Forum and Other Voices.
To take the former first, Forum is a peer-reviewed journal for postgraduate students working in culture and the arts. The journal is based at the University of Edinburgh.
Film and film-theory related articles worth checking out in Issue 1, Autumn 2005 - Origins and Originality are as follows:
- Angelopoulos' Ulysses Gaze: Where the Old meets the New Vangelis Makriyannakis, University of Edinburgh
- The Kuleshov Effect and the Death of the Auteur Michael Russell, The University of Edinburgh (this should usefully be read alongside an essay in the same issue on literary authorship theory: The Phantom Walking the Text: The Death of the Author Reconsidered Sten Moslund, University of Southern Denmark)
- And the really excellent Jean-Luc Godard and Roy Lichtenstein: Originality, Reflexivity, and the Re-Presented Image by Daniel Yacavone, University of Edinburgh. Film Studies For Free also highly recommends Yacavone's just-published article for Film-Philosophy - 'Towards a Theory of Film Worlds'
- "The vanguard - and the most articulate audience": Queer Camp, Jack Smith and John Waters Nicholas de Villiers, University of Minnesota
- Charles Hawtrey, Kenneth Williams, and Susan Sontag: Campaigners of Camp and the Carry On films. John Bannister, University of Central Lancashire
- Putting on the Red Dress: Reading Performative Camp in Douglas Sirk's All That Heaven Allows Ryan Powell, University of East Anglia
- The Shanghai Gesture Homay King (Bryn Mawr College)
- Mod Murder: Death and Desire in Swinging London Film Michelle Devereaux (University of Edinburgh)
- Female Effigies and Performances of Desire: A Consideration of Identity Performance in Lars and the Real Girl. Kate E. O'Neill (University of Calgary)
- Screaming through the century: The female voice as cathartic/transformative force, from Berg's Lulu to Tykwer's Run Lola Run Maree Macmillan, RMIT University/The University of Melbourne
- "A million years...just for us": Subversive fixity in Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging RockAlex Tate, University of Newcastle, UK
The Other Voices Search Results page for ALL 57 articles referencing the keyword 'film' is HERE. Film Studies For Free (or its human avatar, at least) hasn't yet personally checked out all 57 listed... but links to ones that it did take a look at and are very much worth listing are given below:
- Other Voices 1.3 (January 1999), Manuel Camblor "Death Drive's Joy Ride: David Cronenberg's Crash"
- Other Voices, 3.1 (May 2007), David Scott Diffrient, "Stories that Objects Might Live to Tell: The Hand-Me-Down Narrative"
- Other Voices 2.3 (January 2005), Julie Grossman, "The Trouble with Carol: The Costs of Feeling [On Todd Haynes' Safe]"
- Other Voices 1.3 (January 1999), Jack Turner "Antonioni's The Passenger as Lacanian Text"
- And Film Studies For Free especially enjoyed Other Voices 2.2 (March 2002), Laurence A. Rickels, "Recognition Values: Seeing The Sixth Sense Again For the First Time" (more because FSFF's owner has a particular interest in the concept of 'recognition' than for this article's rather competent performance of high-end Lacanianism, and spendid punning... but I digress)
