FANS Quarantime

 

A Special Edition of The Phoenix Papers

 

During this time of uncertainty, many of us are relying on aspects of fandom and neomedia to get information about the global pandemic and to form our replies to it in terms of connecting with colleagues, staying mentally functional, and generally keeping our lives going as best we can.

It is with all these things in mind that we announce a call for papers for a special edition of our journal: FANS Quarantime.

The introduction of movable type print in late fifteenth-century Europe began with the noble aspiration of making the Word of God available for all, most famously exemplified by the Gutenberg Bible.  How could early printers have foreseen that their work would prepare the ground for the violence and social turmoil that would follow in the Reformation. Texts, broadly defined, were experiencing a powerful transformation. The trust that people placed in texts came under severe strain even as they were more readily available than ever before.  Texts of all kinds—the sermon of the local clergyman, a pamphlet expressing a political view, poetry, plays, even the Word of God itself—required new methods and systems for declaring their trustworthiness.

The global lockdown has made us confined to our primeval cave-like shelter of home. The postgobal earth is in suspended condition, as if it needs some time for hibernation. In the face of increasing number of death, we all are seeking solutions, exploring options and thinking of new patterns of life. Surely the world will change permanently after this and if we are fortunate enough to see the post-Corona world, we will reminisce about our pre-Corona days. In between, during the uncertain lockdown period, we expect humankind to respond to the pandemic in creative ways.

We are seeking submission of creative works for a Special Collection to be created from the submitted works in Continuous Publication mode.

Call Extended!  New Due Date for Abstracts is April 20, 2020

Videogames are a powerful storytelling medium—but what are the stories we tell about videogames, with videogames, around videogames?

While there is an extensive body of scholarship on the way that videogames create worlds, construct characters, and explore themes, there has been almost no scholarship on the representation of videogames in literary texts.

Call for Papers – Uncharted

Abstracts are sought for a peer-reviewed collection of philosophical essays related to the Naughty Dog action-adventure video game series Uncharted (2007-2017). The essays should refer to the games that are considered the canon of the series: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. As the production of the movie adaptation of the game has been once again put on hold, and it seems that Naughty Dog will not develop new entries in the series in the foreseeable future, a book of essays seems rather timely.
