The Popular Culture Review is seeking out scholarly articles on video games to be included as part of an ongoing series featured in each issue. While we want to keep the range of topics open, serious consideration of the digital narrative, especially in the form of focused analyses of specific titles or series, are of special interest.

Approaches combining the ludological approach with the narratological approach are also of interest. The goal of the journal is to continue to expand upon a growing and serious consideration of gaming as a storytelling platform.

Worlding and sexual difference are generative forces that imply a process of appearance and concealment. For Martin Heidegger, worlding is the process by which something becomes unconcealed through its passing from earth to world. This aesthetic and phenomenological passing is constituted by strife. For Luce Irigaray, sexual difference is that which remains concealed through patriarchy. For psychoanalysis, sexual difference responds to the specular logic of sameness and is produced by the resolution of the castration complex. Elizabeth Grosz, on the other hand, understands sexual difference as irreducible to all humans insofar as human reproduction is only possible through the encounter of two gametes.

Please find below a call for papers for IMC July 2016; 'Exploring the Medieval Imaginative Landscape'.

Session details

I am organising a session around the broad topic of 'The Medieval Imaginative Landscape', which is seeking collaborators working in any area which touches on medieval discourses about the strange or the supernatural. I would like to encourage a holistic approach to this topic, thus papers could draw upon a wide range of sources including, but not limited to: altarpieces, tapestries, tombs, archaeological finds, sagas, romances, chronicles, exempla, saints' lives etc. Participants might approach the sources from a variety of perspectives including cultural history, art history, literary analysis etc.
