CALL FOR PARTICIPATION – Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Film and Television Costume Design

This 3-volume compendium, edited by Professor Deborah Nadoolman Landis, will be the first reference work of its kind, showcasing the contribution of film and television Costume Designers.

Her is the current Table of Contents to see if any topics catch your fancy! So you know, we are very open to your suggestions for articles in Volumes 2 and 3; those two volumes in particular are quite flexible at the moment so if you have a designer or production you would like to write about that is not present in the current Table of Contents, please do let me know. Also, if you have any other colleagues who might be interested in participating, please do let me know. I would love to reach out to them.

This work will be organized as follows:

· Volume 1 will be dedicated to themes and issues in costume design, as well as the history and process of costume design around the globe. The length of each article will be around 2,000 words. Deadline: June 1, 2020

· Volume 2 will contain short (300-1,500 words) biographical entries of film and television costume designers. Deadline: July 1, 2020

· Volume 3 will focus on costume case studies within film and television genres. These pieces will be an article length of 2,000 words per production and 1,000 word articles dedicated to the exploration of specific iconic costumes. Deadline: August 1, 2020

Should you be interested in participating Bloomsbury will send you a contract in the coming weeks, after each contributor has been assigned their topic(s). The anticipated publication date for Volume 1 is Fall 2020, with Volumes 2 and 3 rolling out subsequently.

For questions about this project and the publication process please feel free to contact me. Thank you very much!

Deborah and I look forward to hearing from you,

Natalie Snoyman, PhD – Assistant Editor
