From film noir to sci-fi, Terry Gilliam to David Lynch, dystopian narratives continue to hold a prominent place in film across independent, Hollywood, and international film communities.

Papers on the work of David Lynch or other directors of dystopian films are encouraged, and we especially welcome papers that incorporate close readings of films.

While adult book sales have been down for the past few years, sales of young adult titles have increased as much as 30% according to some reports. The turn of the millennium brought an explosion of YA sales with the most notable Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, and Divergent series. YA sections grew from a few shelves to prominent areas in libraries and major bookstores. In fact, a recent Pew Survey reported that 16-29 year-olds check out library books more than any other group.
