Stereotypes are not only transported but also created by movies on the big and small screens. Movies thereby become emblematic for cultural, racial, and social stereotypes. The initial volume of Entertainment – Journal of Media and Movie Studies wants to analyze this interrelationship in more detail and is, therefore, asking for submissions that deal with stereotypes on the screen. Possible topics may include but are not limited to
Movies and racial stereotypes
Prejudice creation on the screen
The staging of the ‘other’
Propaganda on the screen
Articles should range between 5000 and 8000 words and use footnotes (following the latest Chicago Manual of Style).
The biannual (March and September) and peer-reviewed journal also offers two sections on
Book Reviews (1000-1500 words) and Movie Reviews (2000-3000 words).

The deadline for the submission of full papers is: November 30, 2015.
