Hispanic Research Journal

Screen Arts Issue

Editor: Prof. Rob Stone, (University of Birmingham, UK)

2013 marks the launch of an annual Screen Arts issue of the Hispanic Research Journal. This exciting new development complements the existing Visual Arts issue and increases the journal to six issues a year.

The Screen Arts issue will appear as the first issue of each volume (in February). This annual peer-reviewed publication is dedicated to articles on film, TV, photography, internet and other digital media in the Iberian and Latin American world. It is edited by Professor Rob Stone (University of Birmingham) who works in close collaboration with the journal’s editor-in-chief. Articles can be in English, Spanish, Catalan and Portuguese.

The first Screen Arts issue (14.1) is dedicated to Lusophone Cinemas and is guest-edited by Professor Else R. P. Vieira (Queen Mary, University of London). It brings together the cinemas of the Portuguese-speaking world and presents new readings of celebrated Lusophone auteurs across three continents, namely Africa (Guinean Flora Gomes), Latin America (Brazilian Glauber Rocha) and Europe (Portuguese Manoel de Oliveira and Margarida Cardoso). There are also interviews with leading Lusophone film directors Margarida Cardoso, Teresa Prata, and Francisco Manso.

Screen Arts II will be devoted to Spanish Contemporary Cinema, guest-edited by Professor Fernando Canet (University of Valencia).
