Legenda book series
Moving Image takes the moving image seriously—as an object of theoretical speculation and historical analysis and a medium of aesthetic complexity—and takes seriously, as well, the material practices out of which moving images emerge and into which they intervene.
Moving Image seeks to publish challenging and innovative work on contemporary and historical film and moving-image media work. Its distinguished history as a series includes an emphasis on European cinema; art cinema; avant-garde cinema; the intersection of film and philosophy; and the relationship of cinema to new media; the intersection of the moving image and the museum. We seek to build on this history of achievement but also to expand it in new directions. We continue to encourage proposals that speak to our existing strengths in the aforementioned areas, but we also invite proposals for projects that engage with or emerge from a much broader field of research areas. These include:
Proposals. Proposals consisting of a cover letter, short CV, 2000-word outline of the project, and a sample chapter should be sent to the series editor. We invite proposals for both monographs and edited collections. In the case of the latter, a project ouline and 500-word abstracts (with indicative bibliographies) are required.
Review copies. Journals wishing to review books in this series should please contact email@example.com to request copies.
Subvention. Authors in this series are not required to raise any subsidy or subvention, but are responsible in the usual way if any rights fees arise from illustrations or other copyright material included.
History. The series was established by Emma Wilson in 2012 and flourished under her guidance. In 2021 John David Rhodes took over as the series’s General Editor, at which point the editorial board was expanded in directions that reflect both a dedication to the series’ historical distinction and its opening to new avenues of research.
