Journals hosted by the library at Kwantlen Polytechnic University


  • Mise-en-scène: The Journal of Film & Visual Narration

    Mise-en-scène: The Journal of Film & Visual Narration (MSJ) is the first of its kind: an international, peer-reviewed journal focused exclusively on the artistry of frame composition as a storytelling technique. With its open-access, open-review publishing model, MSJ strives to be a synergistic, community-building hub for discourse that begins at the level of the frame. Scholarly analysis of lighting, set design, costuming, camera angles, camera proximities, depth of field, and character placement are just some of the topics that the journal covers. While primarily concerned with discourse in and around the film frame, MSJ also includes narratological analysis at the scene and sequence level of related media (television and online) within its scope. Particularly welcome are articles that dovetail current debates, research, and theories as they deepen the understanding of filmic storytelling. The journal's contributing writers are an interdisciplinary mixture of graduate students, academics, filmmakers, film scholars, and cineastes, a demographic that also reflects the journal's readership. Published annually in the spring and winter, Mise-en-scène is the official film studies journal of the Department of English at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. It appears in EBSCO's Film and Television Literature Index.
