UPDATE: Reading Rocky Horror (no deadline noted; edited collection)

Jeffrey Weinstock

Although the announced deadline for submissions for the _Reading Rocky
Horror: The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Popular Culture_ edited collection
project has passed, I will still consider additional submissions.

The initial cfp netted a fine group of essays, but one too narrowly focused
on issues of spectatorship or gender. I will still consider essays on those
topics, but am most interested in submissions that tackle the film, its
cult, and its influence from other perspectives.

If you are interested in developing an essay, please contact me at

Material Religion: The Journal of Images, Objects, and Belief
A new journal from Berg Publishers, Oxford

Material Religion seeks to explore how religion happens in material
culture – images, devotional and liturgical objects, architecture and
sacred space, works of art and mass-produced artifacts. No less
important than these material forms are the many different practices
that put them to work. Ritual, communication, ceremony, instruction,
meditation, propaganda, pilgrimage, display, magic, liturgy and
interpretation constitute many of the practices whereby religious
material culture constructs the worlds of belief.
