Call for Essays: Stranger Things: Eighties Nostalgia, Cynicism and Innocence

 

I am looking for proposals for chapters for a book on the Netflix series Stranger Things to be published by McFarland & Company. As the book title suggests, the overarching theme of the volume is how the series creates, evokes, uses and exploits the eighties, eighties culture and contemporary nostalgia for both. Successful proposals will link an aspect of Stranger Things with an eighties counterpart and explore how the series engages that aspect of Reagan-era culture.

CFP: Speculative Visions (Invisible Culture, Issue 27)

updated: 
Tuesday, February 14, 2017 - 2:18pm
Invisible Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2017

For its twenty-seventh issue, InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture invites scholarly articles and creative works that address the complex and multiple meanings of speculative 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.

The Apocalyptic Imaginary in (post-) 9/11 Literature and Culture

updated: 
Monday, February 13, 2017 - 12:02pm
ASAP (Association for the Study of Arts of the Present)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 10, 2017

This panel will explore themes and representational strategies of 9/11 and/or the apocalypse in post-9/11 literature and culture (movies, television, painting, music, etc.).

Questions to consider include but are not limited to:

How do artists (broadly conceived) try to capture the singularity of 9/11 as a world historical event?  Alternatively, how and why do they resist notions of singularity, protesting the idea that it was a day after which “everything changed” forever?

How has this historical moment altered our conceptions either human nature or of ecological systems more generally?

How has Islamophobia been encoded in grotesque representations of the Other?
