UPDATE: Reading Rocky Horror (no deadline noted; edited collection)

Sunday, February 8, 2004 - 12:50am
Jeffrey Weinstock

Although the announced deadline for submissions for the _Reading Rocky
Horror: The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Popular Culture_ edited collection
project has passed, I will still consider additional submissions.

The initial cfp netted a fine group of essays, but one too narrowly focused
on issues of spectatorship or gender. I will still consider essays on those
topics, but am most interested in submissions that tackle the film, its
cult, and its influence from other perspectives.

If you are interested in developing an essay, please contact me at
<> or (989) 774-3101.
