Edited Collection: Science Fiction and Shakespeare

We are seeking contributions from scholars in various disciplines to submit proposals for chapters to be combined into an edited collection on Shakespeare’s influences on modern day science fiction.

Shakespeare’s influence on literary genres is profound to say the least, however, for some people, the association with modernity and popular culture often blinds the reader from any connection to Shakespeare and the English Early Modern Period. Evidence from science fiction belies this position as Shakespeare in both physical and textual form is a regular fixture on the screen. A well-known example comes from the 2007 Doctor Who episode “The Shakespeare Code” where the Doctor refers to him as “the most human human there’s ever been.”

Gothic Nature is seeking TV/ film reviews for its next issue. The show or film reviewed should have a clear thematic link to ecohorror/ecoGothic, and the reviews should aim to be about 1,000 words in length (Harvard style and British spelling and punctuation conventions appreciated). We prefer reviews that focus on recent films or TV (within the last couple years), but we can be flexible about this, especially if you want to concentrate on a longer thematic through-line.Send inquiries and submissions to Sara L.

Washington Irving and Film (ALA 2020)

updated: 
Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 7:06am
The Washington Irving Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The Washington Irving Society invites proposals for any topic related to film adaptations of Irving’s biography and texts. Because we continue to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The Sketch Book (1819-1820), dramatizations of stories from the collection, such as “Rip Van Winkle,” “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” and the Christmas stories, are welcomed, but we open the panel to analyses of other texts and representations of Irving as well. From Joseph Jefferson (1829-1905) as Rip Van Winkle on the silent screen to Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow (1999) and the more recent television show “Sleepy Hollow” (2013-2017), interpretations of Irving vary dramatically, and we hope to explore what has entertained audiences for more than a century.
