On the Shoulders of Giants: TitanCon 2020

updated: 
Tuesday, December 10, 2019 - 3:14pm
TitanCon
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 15, 2019

In the spirit of deepening and broadening its roots, TitanCon 2020 is adding a formal academic track to its programming. The convention began as a collaboration between the Brotherhood Without Banners, who wanted to put on a fan convention for Game of Thrones, the Belfast SF/F society The Other Ones, who wanted to put on an SF/F convention, and Arkham Gaming Centre, who wanted to put on a gaming convention. In keeping with that spirit, our theme “On the Shoulders of Giants” hopes to encourage that spirit of collaboration.

Friday the 13th Special Issue of Horror Homeroom: Call for Papers

updated: 
Tuesday, December 10, 2019 - 1:45pm
Horror Homeroom
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

Panned by critics during its initial release, Friday the 13th is arguably the quintessential American slasher. With an iconic villain, Jason Voorhees, an instantly identifiable location, Camp Crystal Lake, and a rabid fan base that expresses its adoration for the franchise through everything from clothing to tattoos, its presence in the popular zeitgeist nearly 40 years later speaks to its unique staying power. The film has generated countless sequels, inspired a comic book and a television series, and even resulted in a survival horror video game; yet, there is a surprising dearth of scholarship devoted to the franchise.

“So What Happens Now?”: Ernest Cline’s Prose and Poetry

updated: 
Monday, December 9, 2019 - 11:46am
Tom Ue / Dalhousie University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 5, 2020

Calling all Gunters! The past few years have seen a growing number of scholarly interventions on Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One (2011), exploring topics that range from his portrayal of dys/utopias (see Nordstrom, Ue) to his use of Pac-Man as a metaphor (Ue and Munday), and from Cline’s treatment of masculinity (Condis) to his invocation of Arthurian romance (Aronstein and Thompson). In 2018, the novel was adapted into a critically and commercially successful hit, earning an Academy Award nomination.
