Doing Women’s (Global) (Horror) Film History

You are invited to submit a proposal for a special issue of MAI: Feminism and Visual Culture on women filmmakers working in global horror cinema. This issue will be published in late 2023.

Each contributor will produce a video essay (5 – 10 minutes) and an accompanying piece of reflective writing (800–1000 words).

No experience (or confidence) in filmmaking or videographic criticism is required. All training will be provided during an eight-month online mentorship and training scheme. This scheme is funded by the AHRC, as part of my AHRC Fellowship on Feminist Horror Cinema.
