CFP: Lost and Othered Children in Contemporary Cinema

"Seeking original articles for an edited collection about lost and "Othered" children in contemporary cinema (from 1980 to the present). In contrast to traditional portraits of sweetness and light, there is a large body of cinematic works that provide a counter note of darkness to the more common notion of the innocent and pure child. These films depict childhood as a site of knowingness, despair, sexuality, death, and even madness. This collection’s project is to explore this filmic imagining of the dark side of childhood."

Submission deadline for abstracts: August 1, 2010.
