Dear all,

Dr Mark Ryan (QUT) and I are currently putting together a proposal for an edited collection on Australian Genre Film. The book will bring together influential and emerging scholars of Australian film to offer analyses of, and across, the genres of Australian fictional feature films, collectively offering an up-to-date survey of Australian genre cinema. The book will be centrally organised around 13 chapters, each focused on a genre in Australian cinema, including any significant sub-genres. Each chapter will offer a brief historical contextualisation of the genre, including an assessment of the genre’s distinctiveness in the context of Australian cinema (e.g. core tropes, motifs, style etc), before focusing primarily on the significant developments and key films in the genre since 2008 (though noting significant precedents where necessary).

While we already have a number of authors attached to the project, there are still some chapters for which we are seeking contributors. Specifically, we are now seeking contributors to write chapters on:

- biopic
- romance
- science fiction
- thriller/suspense thriller

Chapters would be 5000 words long with our timeline anticipated as follows:

  *   Abstract (200-300 words) & short bio due: 10 July 2017
  *   Full papers required for refereeing: 31 July 2018
  *   Referee reports returned to authors: 30 September 2018
  *   Chapter revisions due to editors: 30 December 2018

If you are interested in contributing, please let us know as soon as possible and forward on your abstract (and a short bio) by 10 July to kelly.mcwilliam at usq.edu.au and m3.ryan at qut.edu.au

And of course, should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. A draft synopsis is also available on request.

Kelly and Mark
