New Screen Search Fashion website

A new website featuring fashion on film in the 1920s and 1930s is being launched this week. Screen Search Fashion has been developed by Screen Archive South East, at the University of Brighton, in partnership with the RCA funded by the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning through Design (CETLD).

This free online resource offers a new way of looking at everyday fashion and dress history in the inter-war years through unique archive film held in Screen Archive South East’s (SASE) collections. The site provides a thematic guide to aspects of 1920s and 1930s fashion, as depicted in over two hundred newly digitized stills and clips, enabling the researcher to discover key aspects of fashion and dress of the period in their historical and design contexts.  The site includes links to records in Screen Archive South East’s online database, where the films can be explored in further detail. The site also includes links to related resources held in archives, libraries and museums; a bibliography of related literature and a glossary of terms.

This new online teaching and learning resource is accessible to all, enabling material which has hitherto been underused for fashion research and study, to be opened up to a wider audience. The vast potential of non-fiction film as a resource for students interested in fashion and dress is highlighted by this resource which has the potential to contribute to dress historians’ developing interest in everyday fashions.

This resource is the result of a year long, CETLD-funded project, carried out at the Royal College of Art and Screen Archive South East, at the University of Brighton.

Journal of Screenwriting
Call for Papers Volume 2.1
Deadline for submissions: 15 March 2010
They invite researchers, educators and practitioners to contribute to Issue 2.1 of the Journal of Screenwriting, a new peer-reviewed journal set up to focus on this important aspect of moving image pre-production and conceptualisation.  

Contributions are sought on the history, theory and practice of screenwriting and related topics, covering a wide range of
practices from film and television to animation, new media and computer games.

The Journal of Screenwriting brings together research and reflection on pedagogy, professionalism and practice in an area which has been somewhat overlooked in academic discourse.  

Articles should be between 4000 and 7000 words in length.  Topics may include, for example, screenplay text analysis, methodologies and theories appropriate for research and study in this field, genre studies, etc. They also welcome articles suggesting new approaches to the study of screenwriting, and articles presenting new approaches to the teaching of screenwriting.

Articles, to include a 200 word abstract, should be sent by Monday 15 March 2010 to the Principal Editor Jill Nelmes  and to the Co-Editor Barry Langford

Please contact either Jill or Barry regarding any queries about suitability of subject or other requirements.
