Reinvigorating Film Studies: An Immodest Proposal


  • Murat Akser Kadir Has University



CINEJ Cinema Journal is a newcomer to the field of film studies. It is committed to publishing fresh and original research in the fields of film and media studies. The need for such a journal is result of emergence of fresh perspectives in film studies and the absence of an outlet to incorporate such ideals.
