“Speculative Visions” –​ ​Issue 27

For its twenty-seventh issue, ​InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Vis​ual Culture invites scholarly articles and creative works that address the complex and multiple meanings of specul​ative visions.

The last decade has seen a rise in popularity among science fiction, fantasy, and horror. These

genres encourage the capacity to imagine post-human bodies, extraordinary worlds,

techno-utopias, and claustrophobic spaces of violence. In their reliance upon the imagination,

these speculative visions provide a space to consider contradictions and a carnivalesque

interaction between popular culture and critical theory.

CFP: Edited Collection on Masculinity and Gender in Sons of Anarchy

Editor: Susan Fanetti, California State University, Sacramento

 

Through its seven-season run, from 2008-2014, Sons of Anarchy celebrated and contemplated the world of outlaw bikers and became a cultural phenomenon in its own right. Creator and showrunner Kurt Sutter’s modern-day retelling of Hamlet became and continues to be the highest-rated show in FX’s network history, and for that achievement, Sutter was, in later seasons, granted unprecedented leeway to tell his story in his way.

Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2017

Over the past five years, more and more English language transformative fandoms have gravitated to the social networking site Tumblr, moving from online communities such as LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, and Yahoo! Groups. Thus many fan communities have shifted organization structures to adapt to Tumblr’s multiple points of entry and seemingly anti-hierarchical framework. Some fans describe Tumblr as a fandom free-for-all without clear rules for engagement. Others describe this uncertain multiplicity as one of the platform’s strengths. Still others have pointed to Tumblr's comparatively more visual interface as enabling greater global participation in heretofore monolingual fandom spaces.
