Re-Thinking Iran

 

Hijab, censorship, a chauvinistic sense of superiority over Arabs, an ancient culture, the monumental Persepolis, clerics, the Islamic Revolution. The grid is probably enough to bring Iran into public or even scholarly mind in the contemporary world. But does this picture do justice to this nation-state and its diversity of cultures? Besides a psychological desire and a quest for the exotic, discursive representations and stereotypes have shaped the occidental understanding of the orient and the global conceptualization of Iran.

Horror Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 15, 2017

With the current spate of contemporary high-budget properties that have sought to engage and adapt online horror content, increasing attention has been turned to communities of amateur critics, writers, illustrators, and fans that work to create horror in digital space. Their influence has been felt in a variety of media, from the television series Channel Zero and Supernatural, to the film The Tall Man and video games like Slender and SCP: Containment Breach. Fora in Something Awful, “r/nosleep”, and the SCP Foundation represent attempts by massive communities to create negotiated fictions, imagining mythic spaces and enduring, horrific creatures.
