CFP Extended: Raoul Peck Anthology

raoul peck image

The critically acclaimed filmmaker, Raoul Peck, has a long and impressive filmography that includes both feature films such as Haitian Corner (1987-88), L’homme sur les quais (The Man by the Shore) (1993) and Moloch Tropical  (2009) and documentaries, like Lumumba, la mort du prophète (Lumumba, Death of a Prophet) (1992) and Le profit et rien d’autre (Profit and Nothing But! Or Impolite Thoughts on the Class Struggle) (2001). The editors of this proposed volume seek articles for possible consideration in an anthology that will explore Peck’s contributions to several fields.

We invite essay proposals from scholars and independent researchers in various disciplines to reflect on different aspects of Peck’s film career.  We are interested in a wide range of topics, analytical frames, and comparative approaches.  Questions may include but are definitely not limited to:

  • Intersections of feature film and the documentary medium
  • The role of orality/oral tradition
  • Treatments of history
  • Treatments of myth
  • Violence, power, trauma
  • Narrative voices
  • The art of the mise-en-scène
  • Peck’s place in the world/third cinema tradition
  • Methodologies
  • Use of language(s)

Please submit a 400 word abstract and a one-page CV to the editors by April 15, 2013. Previously published material will be considered.  If the editors accept your proposal, final essays must be submitted by December 1, 2013. Please submit abstracts electronically to: toni.sanon@gmail.com and sophie.saintjust@gmail.com.
