BeschreibungCFP: Edited volume on Nazisploitation

This volume will examine past intersections of National Socialism and popular cinema in the Nazisploitation genre, as well as the recent reemergence of this imagery in contemporary visual culture. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, films such as Love Camp 7 and Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS both introduced and reinforced the image of Nazis as master paradigms of evil in what film theorists deem the "sleaze" film. More recently, Rob Zombie’s mock Nazisploitation trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse (2007) and Tarantino’s own Inglourious Basterds (2009), as well as video games such as Call of Duty: World at War (2008), have reinvented this iconography for new audiences. Both in past filmic representations of Nazism and in these newer instances, this reimagining of the Nazi crosses the line from the historical to the fantastic, as when the trope of the violent Nazi becomes the hyperbolic caricature of the “monstrous feminine” or the masculine sadist, while power-hungry mad scientists seek to clone the Führer, and Nazi zombies rise from the grave. This volume will examine the history, aesthetic strategies, and political implications of such translations of National Socialism into the realm of commercial, low brow, and “sleaze” visual culture.

We especially seek contributions that examine how the Nazisploitation genre arose when it did, how it articulates and violates taboos differently than “mainstream” representations, including the discomfiting intersection of this imagery with Holocaust representation. Through analyses of more recent examples from other media, this volume will also seek to explain and investigate how this kind of imagery reaches new audiences in the digital age, and why this reinvented iconography resonates with contemporary audiences. We welcome analyses that go beyond discussion of specific texts to address questions of audience, the role of new media in making Nazisploitation films more accessible through specialty markets, and the relationship between Nazisploitation and other related genres. Finally, we welcome self-reflective contributions that critique the very notion of Nazisploitation as a subject of scholarly inquiry.

We welcome submissions from scholars in Film and Media, German Studies, Cultural Studies, and beyond.

Please submit your 200-300 word proposal by January 15 as email attachment to all three editors:

Elizabeth Bridges, Rhodes College,
Kris Vander Lugt, Iowa State University, AND
Daniel Magilow, University of Tennessee - Knoxville

We will respond promptly following the submission deadline, and for those selected to be included in the volume, the manuscript deadline will be May 15, 2010.
