September Hispania – Special Focus Issue

Sunday, September 20, 2015  

Hispania’s special issue on the Scholarship of Film and Film Studies (98.3) is in print and will soon be available online (Project Muse). The issue, which boasts three esteemed Guest Editors—David William Foster, Benjamin Fraser, and Bill VanPatten—, includes 17 articles and 20 reviews on the scholarship of film and pedagogy using film. Of special interest will be Guest Editorials written by Foster, Fraser, and VanPatten about the current issue and about the state of film studies today.

The articles in the special issue on the Scholarship of Film and Film Studies include a variety of studies on contemporary film—including Pablo Larraín’s No (see Howe and Hodge), Claudia Llosa’s La teta asustada (see Rueda), and the Ecuadorian documentary Más allá del fútbol (see Ruggiero)—as well as studies on early modern literature (Lope de Vega and Calderón de la Barca; see Domènech and Patterson) as film. The contributions on the pedagogy of film are not to be missed. Learn how Hispanic film studies enhance civic engagement opportunities for author Kajsa Larson and how documentary film promotes cultural and language competence for coauthors Tammy Jandrey Hertel and Stasie Harrington. Book/Media Review Editor Domnita Dumitrescu compiled an impressive array of reviews to correspond with the topic of film studies in the special issue. Look for a review of David William Foster’s recent book on documentary filmmaking in Latin America (written by María Matz), a review of Antônio Márcio da Silva’s book on the figure of the femme fatale in the cinema of Brazil (written by Débora Racy Soares), and film critiques on seven recent films from Spanish-speaking countries.
