Call for Submissions: Barbie and Oppenheimer

In a post-pandemic world marked by increasing cost of living and ubiquitous home streaming services, trips to the movie theatre have become for many a nonessential, nostalgic pastime, but the release of Barbie and Oppenheimer has reinvigorated casual theatregoers and film enthusiasts alike. Despite their contrasting visuals and thematically different universes, these two films have managed to create one dynamic gravitational field. If nothing else, “Barbenheimer” has reminded us that we love going to the movies.

Transpositions is now accepting submissions for a series on the Barbie and Oppenheimer films. Authors are invited to consider a wide range of topics, such as religious themes in the films, their theological significance or what the reception of these films suggests about film as a medium and theatregoing as a cultural phenomenon, particularly in light of the ongoing Writers Guild and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Authors are welcome to consider a single film or both together. Articles should be between 1500–2000 words. Please email submissions to Editor-in-Chief Annie Konzelman at by Friday, August 25 for consideration.
