L’Atalante, Journal of Film and Media Studies.
The purpose of this call for papers is to promote innovative research of television series narratives in order to identify and explain their specific properties. ‘Innovative’ in this context refers to studies that make effective use of resources drawn from other scientific disciplines and that formulate relevant theories based on new methods. With this in mind, we are especially interested in contributions that draw on current concepts and theories in cognitivism and neuroaesthetics, although methodologically innovative contributions in dialogue with other disciplines are also welcome. We thus hope to be able to offer a significant contribution to the definition of the identity of a narrative form whose major role in contemporary culture is beyond dispute. The main objective of our initiative is to encourage aesthetic/narrative analysis of the characteristics that are most specific to the television series.
