Opportunity knocketh!

We are inviting Academics and Research Students and Practitioners to send pitches and proposals to ViewFinder Magazine. We are looking for essays and articles on: film, television, radio, education, research projects involving the moving image, plus book and DVD reviews.

This is a great opportunity for impact and to write around a subject without peer review. It is also a great space for research students and post-grads to get their work out to the public.

The next issue is based on Masculinity – Exploring representations of gender, masculinity, male and female behaviour on film, television, radio and in education. From old patriarchy in the industry, to new forms of masculinity in the millennium, this issue aims to spotlight one of the more pressing identity issues of today.

Deadline for final draft submissions is end of April 2019.

Please send proposals asap to Kit at Learning On Screen:

SS: Remembering Mom

Thinking about Mom: the last time I saw her I drove from Canada to Colorado to visit her in her in her final rest home. A young Lutheran minister was there.

He was visibly upset by her condition. Mom told him “All is well. You may go now.” He did.

She then asked me to say the doxology. (I remembered it!) Our daughter, Margaret Riley, was present. After a short conversation, Mom said, “You should go home to your wife now, son. I love you.”

And I did. And I do.
