TWC Special Issue CFP: Fan Fiction and Ancient Scribal Cultures (6/1/18; 12/15/19)

This special issue of TWC explores the potential of fan fiction as an interpretative model to study ancient religious texts.

Fan fiction writers are readers of texts who become writers of their own texts. Fans engage with the universe created by the makers of a specific series, film, or book, to which they refer as “canonical” material. For example, they create new storylines, “repair” plots they do not agree with (fix-it fic), write prequels or sequels, and fill in scenes that are missing.

DESCRIPTION

J. G. Ballard’s fictional worlds are alive with making, remaking, repurposing and reinvigorating: ‘survival kits’ composed of unlike objects; the rekindling of creativity amongst the beach-fatigued denizens of Vermilion Sands; the surrealist constructs of ‘The Unlimited City’; the wound mappings and death scenarios of Crash; the consumerist totems and shrines of The Unlimited Dream Company, and more.

Shadow Cinema: The Historical and Production Context of Unmade Films

updated: 
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 6:07am
De Montfort University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 8, 2017

Unmade films are a burgeoning area of scholarly inquiry. The rise of the film archive, from the Michael Klinger Papers and Hammer Archive, to the John Boorman Papers and Stanley Kubrick Archive, all have unearthed a treasure trove of abandoned or halted projects, left unmade for a range of industrial, cultural and political contexts. This also extends to unreleased cinema, those projects that were abandoned in pre-production, cut short in production, or simply never distributed, or removed from circulation.
