The International Journal of the History of Sport
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 15, 2019

Since its creation in the mid-20th century, fantasy sport has become a significant part of international sport and its history. Once an obscure subculture of statistics-obsessed sports fans, fantasy sport now constitutes a cultural phenomenon with 59.3 million North American participants in 2017 and with tens of millions more throughout the world. According to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, North American participants alone spend an average of $556 a year on fantasy sport and related materials, amounting to almost $33 billion in annual revenue. With this level of fan interest and earning capacity, fantasy sport is now a major force within the global sport industry.

Naomi Alderman’s rise to literary stardom following the publication of The Power in 2016has been remarkable.  Alderman had been a critically feted novelist for a decade before The Power. Her earlier work had led to an Orange Award for Young Writers in 2006 and she was named a Granta Young Novelist of the Decade in 2013. The Power, written following a year-long mentorship by Margaret Atwood, won the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2017; as with Atwood’s speculative fiction, it is situated on the boundaries of genre and literary fiction.

I am looking for one essay to fill an empty spot in an edited collection on the television show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. This essay should address the critical reception of the show. The final draft of the essay is needed by March 15, 2019. 

The collection overall argues that the show participates in quality or post-quality television programming through its generic hybridity and diverse cast and storylines. 

If interested, please submit queries and/or a 300-word abstract to akonkle@georgiasouthern.edu by January 31, 2019.
