deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 7, 2018

We are seeking 300-500 word abstracts by May 7th, 2018 for possible inclusion into an edited collection seeking to explore the complex relationship between masculinity, toxic masculinity, gender, queerness, and superhero narratives. Over the last few years there have been books that that explore issues of feminism, gender, and sexuality within comic books but rarely have they engaged with the way the genre shapes and is shaped by contemporary conceptions of masculinity. This project is meant to fill that absence focusing on the construction of the masculinity in comics, as well as engage with critical works that deconstruct toxic version of masculinity or offer queerer, trans, and feminist counter-narratives of the concept.

“Happy are those ages when the starry sky is the map of all possible paths—ages whose paths are illuminated by the light of the stars. Everything in such ages is new and yet familiar, full of adventure and yet their own.” Georg Lukács wrote those words in his Theory of the Novel in developing the point that art is no longer merely a copy of the world, but rather, an imagined totality. Though he favored realism, we can, perhaps borrow his point to explain the value of science fiction in today’s world. Few other genres exceed science fiction’s ability to portray the expansive space of the imaginary.
