Topics could include, but are not limited to:

Historical and culturalvariations of film credits making truth claims
Truth claims and historiography
Unreliable narration
Ironic truth claims
Truth theory
Speech act theory
Legal implications and practices
Effects on the audience

About New Readings

New Readings is a peer-reviewed, open-access online-journal. We publish original research in the fields of literature, film and visual culture. The journal has a strong, but by no means exclusive interest in interdisciplinary scholarship. Established in 1995 to publish selected research papers presented by scholars visiting Cardiff University (Wales, UK), in 2000 the journal moved online for increased circulation.

New Readings has recently been relaunched and will publish two issues per year, one general and one themed. Previous themed issues have been 'Images of Exile', 'Figures of the Self', 'Identity, Gender, Politics', 'Space and Identity', 'Travelling the Urban Space', 'Writing Difference' and 'Alternative Voices in European Cinema'.

Current members of the journal's Advisory Board include: Gemma Gorga López (Universitat de Barcelona)
Leticia Mora Perdomo (Universidad Veracruzana, Xalapa)
Loredana Polezzi (University of Warwick)
Jim Shields (Aston University)
Fiona Stewart (Penn State University
