Call For Papers

Mediascape, UCLA's film, television, and digital media journal, is now accepting submissions for its 2015 issue. This next issue’s theme is "Time" in film, television, and digital media. Below are the guidelines for submissions to the Columns section.

Columns - "Time"

The manipulation and treatment of time in film, television, and digital media has been subject to many different styles and interpretations across Hollywood's history, and therein time itself. Time is a factor that is often used to enhance and/or complicate narratives and filmic elements, which in turn attempts to intensify our viewing and interactive experiences. The aim of this issue is to explore time in its different forms and the roles it plays in film, television, and digital media - and to also take into account the role it plays for the audience.

Columns welcomes submissions of approximately 800-3,500 words (5-15 pages) in Chicago format. Topics may include but are not limited to:

- How have Hollywood films changed - and possibly improved upon - time framing in narratives?
- How have television shows begun to enhance their narrative quality by emulating films and employing complex stories with complex time frames?
- What similarities and differences exist in complex framings of time in narratives of film, television, and digital media?
- What are some new ways of time framing that try to veer away from recycled methods?
- Which film(s) and/or television show(s) of 2014 centered around some aspect of time (going back to the past, etc.) managed to do so most successfully, and how?

Please submit columns and inquiries to Zeinab Oumais, Columns Editor, at by: January 31, 2015.
