BFS Journal 17 is due out in January/Feburary.
The journal is a mix of articles and is keen to accept submissions from people who want to write about fantasy, horror and science fiction. Our focus is primarily the former, but our readers have interests across all three genres.
Academic articles for the BFS Journal should be between 2500 and 6000 words. We prefer nearer the former, as this is about the size of a conference paper. References in the text should be (Author, Date of Edition: Page Number) with a full publication listing for the bibliography given for each article at the end. Please don't use footnotes in your submissions.

The Comics Arts Conference is now accepting 100 to 200 word abstracts for papers, presentations, and panels taking a critical or historical perspective on comics (juxtaposed images in sequence) for a meeting of scholars and professionals at WonderCon, in Anaheim, Ca, March 31-April 2, 2017. We seek proposals from a broad range of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives and welcome the participation of academic and independent scholars. We also encourage the involvement of professionals from all areas of the comics industry, including creators, editors, publishers, retailers, distributors, and journalists.
When James Joyce was composing Finnegan’s Wake with Samuel Beckett as a scribe, someone knocked on the door. Joyce responded, “Come in?” When he realized he had mistakenly written this down, Beckett asked Joyce how far back to cross out. Joyce—so the story goes—decided to leave it in the novel, delighted at the way his life had blended with his work. How can we understand the dynamic relationship between art and life? When does the depiction of life become life itself? We propose a panel to investigate performance, specifically, as a liminal space between art and life, or between text and action, that offers the opportunity to explore the possibilities of the real and the unreal, of assumption and disruption, of subject and object.
