WRECK PARK: A Journal of Interesting Fictions, Interested Criticism
Wreck Park is a double-blind, peer reviewed publication run out of Binghamton, New York. The journal publishes prose, poetry, criticism, and interviews, and is particularly interested in conceptual frameworks and developments that set to disrupt canonical and standardized discourses of the contemporary academic and literary landscapes. The journal welcomes authors, poets, researchers, and thinkers whose work reflects an interrogation of engendered norms and traditions within societies, cultures, intellectual circles, and beyond
The figure of the hero underwent a renascence in meaning, visibility, and cultural cachet in the twenty-first century, with the success of the Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and World War Z franchises; the Batman, James Bond, and Marvel Cinematic Universe tent-poles; and the 24, Arrow, and Games of Thrones television series. Moreover, the hero took on new significance in other countries' cultural productions, as with the film series Krrish in India, Zebraman in Japan, and Valley of the Wolves in Turkey.
Manuscript Studies in the Long Eighteenth Century: A Roundtable
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO AUGUST 15th.
The editors of Projecting the World are seeking scholarship that examines classical Hollywood's representation of foreign spaces and peoples. This book will analyze how Hollywood cinema actually represents specific nations, areas, or peoples of the world against the backdrop of Hollywood's globalization or U.S. global power in this period. Essays are sought covering Hollywood productions from roughly 1930 to 1965.
An Indelible Mark: Women and the Work of Todd Haynes
We seek additional chapters for an edited collection of original essays currently in development that explores the specific role of women in, on, and behind the work of Todd Haynes. Female characters and women's genres from classical Hollywood, as well as feminist film scholars, women directors, film industry professionals, actors, and female fans have all shaped Haynes's creative work. Our collection represents new research addressing the broadly conceived topic of women and the work of Todd Haynes; we seek to trace the "indelible mark," as Haynes himself puts it, of feminism throughout his career.
PLEASE NOTE NEW CFP DEADLINE
'The Story of Memory' seeks to pose new questions about the relationship between the senses, cognition, memory, and emotion, and to reinvigorate the debate about the return to a critical investigation of story telling in the twenty-first century.
