“Bad Boys” and Girls in Sports: an edited collection of scholarly analyses

At their most basic level, sporting events are about numbers: wins and losses, percentages and points, shots and saves, clocks and countdowns. However, when it comes to sports narratives—the expert commentary before, during and after, the athlete interviews and press conferences, the fan debates around a television or in online forums, etc.—the stories quickly leave the realm of analytics and enter into mythos. The narratives we tell make sports so compelling. We shape athletes into heroes or scapegoats, Davids or Goliaths. We mold the sporting event into a comeback tale or a fall from grace. In other words, we make sports dramatic.

 

Consuming Cultures in Children's and Young Adult Literature and Cultures

Critics such as James Kincaid, Kathryn Bond Stockton, Michelle Martin, Philippe Ariès, and Suzanne Linn have written about childhood and adolescence as something we consume, criticize, and commercialize, whilst simultaneously romanticizing and desiring. In Consuming Kids (2004), Suzanne Linn suggests consumerist culture is conducting a “hostile takeover” of childhood and adolescence. While cultural consumption of childhood and adolescence has increased, these spheres are likewise being offered up as commercial commodities across medias. We seek papers that explore all aspects of Children’s and Young Adult Literature, as well as those addressing the conference theme of consuming cultures.

The 21st century has become inculcated with a sense of perpetual crisis, reflecting a world seemingly on the verge of catastrophe. This new age of anxiety is evident not only in the breakdown of traditional hegemonies, but also in an increasingly personal sense of fear, futility, and frustration for marginalized communities. Within this context, we invite essays for a collection that explores the topic/themes/ideas of resistance in works of myriad types of contemporary (~2005-2018) popular culture.
