Editorial board: Kim Akass, Stephen Lacey, David Lavery, Janet McCabe, Robin Nelson and Rhonda V. Wilcox.




INTENSITIES: THE JOURNAL OF CULT MEDIA (formerly housed at www.cult-media.com), the brainchild of Matt Hills and Sara Gwenllian Jones of the University of Cardiff, Wales, is moving. Under the leadership of the faculty in Film and Television and with the cooperation of the Cult Film Archive (directed by Xavier Mendik), Intensities will be reborn in the School of Arts at Brunel University in London, with David Lavery as the new editor. Its present web address is http://davidlavery.net/Intensities/index.htm.

Intensities will be relaunched at CINE-EXCESS: AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON GLOBAL CULT FILM TRADITIONS, to be held in London May 3-5, 2007.

The new Intensities, like its predecessor, will be a refereed academic journal available online free to everyone. The first new issue will be published in Fall 2007. We are seeking submissions of 5000-8000 words on all aspects of cult media, including cult television, cult film, cult radio, literary, cults and cult authors, new media cults, cult figures and celebrities, cult icons, musical cults, cult geographies, historical studies of media cults and their fandoms, cult genres (eg. science fiction, horror, fantasy, pulp fiction, Manga, anime, Hong Kong film, etc.), theorisations of cult media, relevant audience and readership studies, and work that addresses the cult media industry. We welcome proposals for special issues.

All submissions will be anonymously peer-reviewed. Send your questions, proposals, or finished essays to Dr. David Lavery
