2nd Call for Films Annals of Crosscuts 2019 “Ruptured Times”

This is the 2nd call for Annals of Crosscuts—a new peer-reviewed publication format for film-based research. Deadline for submissions is 22 May 2019.

The Annals of Crosscuts supports the use of film and cinema as integral practices in the critical environmental humanities. We invite filmmakers in the arts, sciences and humanities that experiment with film as a complement and/or challenge to text-based research. The aim is to contribute to emerging and new forms of transmodal scholarship.

“RUPTURED TIMES”, this year´s theme, are interstitial spaces where the past is not anymore but the future is still to come. Indeed, these are ruptured times. While globalization promises to unify the world, thousands of fractures open up space and time. New political ambitions fragment the globe and bring us back to times when nationalism reigned. Climate change ruptures the familiar flow of time with chronologies of the past and projections of the future. Civic groups also rupture time and interrupt the usual sequence of events (think of the Standing Rock Camp in the US or ende gelände in Germany).

Crosscuts2019 is dedicated to exploring these ruptured times broadly and carefully through film, text and discussion.
