Call for Papers: the First Special Issue
*Screening Revolution and Revolutionizing Cinema in East Asia*
/CineEast/is a new academic journal dedicated to critical analysis of
East Asian Cinema. We are pleased to announce that we are organizing our
first call for papers forthis special issue focusing on the intimate
relationship developed between cinema and revolution in East Asia. This
inaugural special issue aims to question the political and cultural
identities of East Asian cinema by examining the continuing interplay of
cinema with revolutions that sought political change, such as
anti-imperialism, anti-colonialism, civil uprising, political upheaval
and democratic movements.
In East Asia, since its inception, the history of cinema has always been
a history of revolution in which film was not simply just an apparatus
for propaganda, but also an institution of resistance and opposition.
East Asian countries shared their memories of building and restoring
national and cultural identities throughout and between the First and
Second World Wars along with military coups, and democratic movements.
As the idea of revolution helped to bring about more democracy in East
Asia, it also impacted on every aspect of the film industry from the
training of filmmakers to the oversight of scripts and control over
exhibition including imported films. In this respect, we initially
suggest that such a narratological thematics of ‘revolution and cinema’
is fundamentalto the possibilities of reconstructing a history of East
Asian cinema, questioning not only geopolitical, but also de-westernized
concepts of East Asian Cinema.
In this spirit, we invite submissions that investigate the fascinating
and complicated connections between cinema and revolution in East Asia.
We are especially interested in particular East Asian cinematic
practices given shape by and through revolutions and those filmmakers
who carved out (or still are carving out) a space for resistance and
opposition within cinema.
