CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
We are pleased to invite you to contribute to Cinegogía, a Digital Humanities project with curated resources in Spanish and English related to Latin American Film Studies. Cinegogía’s Editorial Board curates and develops resources for teaching and researching Latin American cinema using a variety of approaches, including comparative analysis, national and regional studies, cultural studies, and film theory. This bilingual open-access archive publishes materials in the following areas:
- Syllabi Collection: syllabi for teaching film at different levels of the Spanish- and English-language curriculum
- Film Database: a filmography database with highly precise search and filter capabilities
- Film Guide Collection: teaching guides for frequently or recently taught films
- Course Materials Collection: classroom activities and assignments related to Latin American Film Studies, including thematic modules on Afro-Latin American Film Resources and Indigenous Representation in in Latin American Film
- Video Essay Collection
- Videographic Scholarship
Launched in 2016, Cinegogía has been highlighted several times at the annual conference of the Latin American Studies Association, the largest professional organization in the world for individuals and institutions engaged in the study of Latin America. As a sign of the broad application and impact of the project, the Society for Cinema and Media Studies, the leading scholarly organization in the United States dedicated to teaching and research on film and television, lists Cinegogía as a top resource under their “General Teaching Resources” section of the main website. To find out more about the Cinegogía project, please visit this post on Mediático.
Over the past six years, the number of entries in the film database has surpassed 500, and we have published over 200 syllabi, film guides and other course materials in the Teaching Resources module. More than 22,000 users have visited Cinegogía since the project’s debut in 2016, with an average of over 600 monthly visitors over the past year. The majority of our users are educators based in the United States, however, 48% of our web traffic originates in other countries, including Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Spain, United Kingdom, Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Peru, and Canada - evidence of the international scope of the project.
As an open-access, collaborative project, Cinegogía depends on the contributions of Latin American Film scholars and educators worldwide to create a robust and diverse collection of materials. Submissions undergo a blind peer review process, and all published submissions are clearly credited and stamped with the copyright license of your choice. We invite you to submit any of the following items for publication (items may be in English, Spanish or Portuguese):
