CFP: The Nomadic Storytellers a Chance to Contribute
Kamayani Gupta, an alum of UofM is in the process of composing a travel story website called "The Nomadic Storytellers," that would allow people who have traveled for a long period of time a space to talk/tell each other about their experiences.
Kamayani is asking current Michigan students and faculty to help contribute to this website and tell their different stories from their study abroad experiences and vacations to foreign countries.
Anyone who is interested in submitting a story should submit their full name (unless they prefer to be anonymous), their personal blog address, the location from where the story originated, a picture related to their story, and the story itself. Please email these stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information you can visit the website at: www.thenomadicstorytellers.com

CFP Journal: Queer European Film, Studies in European Cinema
Deadline: March 29, 2013
European film has long featured queer elements, while recent cinematic output increasingly challenges national borders and cultural boundaries via a multitude of transnational co-productions and transcultural themes. It is therefore timely to investigate the fluidity of borders and boundaries in relation to the concepts of queerness and nation in order to map the myriad specificities, subjectivities and desires of queer film in contemporary Europe.
The proposed series of special editions of peer-reviewed journal, Studies in European Cinema will explore the current situation of queer film in Europe. Contributions of approximately 6,000 words may include close readings of individual films, but should strive to achieve an overview of queer film/practice by locating work in its broader cultural, political and social context. Articles may focus on one country/language area or include a comparative aspect. Submissions are welcome on, but not limited to, European cinema and the following themes:
- sexuality and/or gender
- queering straight film
- the intersection of transculturalism/nationalism and queerness
- queer directors
- queer(ing) stars/star personas
- queer(ing) film festivals
Abstracts of 200 words and a 150 word bio-bibliography should be submitted by Friday 29 March 2013 to Leanne Dawson (email@example.com) and Jackie Collins (firstname.lastname@example.org), editors.
