UPDATE: Fabulous! The Diva Issue-Camera Obscura Special Issue (8/1/06; journal issue)

Wednesday, June 7, 2006 - 3:24pm
Patricia White

Deadline extended!
                                                 CALL FOR PAPERS

Camera Obscura is planning a special issue titled Fabulous! The Diva
Issue. From actual goddesses to 21st century divinities in film,
television, and popular music, the figure of the diva has captivated,
inspired, and appalled. She (and, maybe, he?) is larger-than-life
and carries with her the cultural and psychic baggage of individuals,
communities, and nations. We are looking for essays (5,000-6,000
words) and shorter "appreciations" (500-1400 words) that consider the
intersection of film, television, or music divas with gender,
sexuality, race/ethnicity, and class.
