Institute of Advanced Studies, Durham University

Kaleidoscope is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal edited by postgraduate researchers at Durham University. Working under the auspices of Durham's Institute of Advanced Study, Kaleidoscope is designed to foster international communication between postgraduates in different disciplines, to promote excellence in interdisciplinary research, and raise awareness of the IAS as a public forum for interdisciplinary scholarship. A key feature of Kaleidoscope is that it embodies and connects diverse subject areas in a single publication, whether in the Arts and Humanities, the Sciences, or the Social Sciences. The IAS publishes a new theme for study each year, and submissions are particularly encouraged relating to this theme.

DEADLINE EXTENDED!

We're looking for female writers to submit a story with the theme of "chosen" or "defeating the odds," and no more than 2,500- 5,000 words. All stories should be Young Adult or New Adult, but can be dark and ominous, humorous, or even fantastical; you decide.

Stories should be submitted in standard manuscript format as a Microsoft word document. Send the story as an email attachment (stories sent in the body of the email will not be considered). All stories must be unpublished. Although, this is an unpaid endeavor, this is for a great cause, and a great way to be published, and a great way to get reviews and press. Proceeds will go to Project READ's drop-in center in Liberia, Nedra House.

[UPDATE] Washington and Politics on Contemporary US Television (Edited Collection)

Betty Kaklamanidou - Margaret Tally

We are currently inviting submissions for 2-3 chapters for an edited collection on Washington and Politics on Contemporary US Television already contracted by Ashgate.
Television has been accommodating a bigger number of political narratives in the last years. From the dramatic "The West Wing," "Scandal," "Madame Secretary," "Homeland," "House of Cards," to the short-lived yet impressive "Boss," and "Commander in Chief" and the mini-series "Political Animals," as well as the comedic "Veep" and "The Brink," millennial TV is fraught with political plot lines that are edgier and more provocative than their filmic counterparts.

CFP: Worshipping the Monstrous: The Supernatural Screen
This area examines notions of the monstrous, monstrosity, and the supernatural as they relate to on-screen representations, thematic inferences, narrative structures, or even production practices throughout the history of filmmaking. How do we better understand the implications of these histories, patterns, or aberrations? What is being signified or challenged, made visible or concealed, through our constructions of the monstrous?
