BFS Journal 19

updated: 
Friday, June 1, 2018 - 9:16am
British Fantasy Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

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.

All contributors are sent a complimentary copy of the print version and the electronic version.

For a proposed panel at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America 2019 (Toronto, 17 -19 March): I am seeking papers on early modern printers. Our modern sense of publishers as (more often than not) merely profiting from the creative agency of authors obscures the meaningful role early printers had in cultural production, politics (conservative and radical), the reception of major works, and the establishment of a public sphere. Printers sometimes simply sought sales, but they also often specialized and promoted particular agendas.

The wealth of material found in the Middle Ages and Renaissance continues to attract modern audiences with new creative works in areas such as fiction, film, and computer games, which make use of medieval and/or early modern themes, characters, or plots. This is a call for papers or panels dealing with any aspect of medieval or Renaissance representation in popular culture. Topics for this area include, but are not limited to the following:

-Modern portrayals of any aspect of Arthurian legends or Shakespeare

-Modern versions or adaptations of any other Medieval or Renaissance writer

Lives and Afterlives: Call for Sub-themes

updated: 
Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - 11:53am
Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 27, 2018

The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium invites proposals for panel themes engaging with the lives and afterlives of medieval cultures for its 2019 meeting. These sub-themes address a particular aspect of our general theme, and could be the basis for either one or two panels. As a rule of thumb, panel themes should be broad enough to encourage numerous applicants, and interdisciplinary proposals are particularly encouraged. Possibilities might include the theologies of heaven, medieval ecologies, everyday life in the Middle Ages, the production of reliquaries, ordering of public space, and popular medievalism.

The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium also invites proposals for individual papers engaging with any aspect of our 2019 theme, Lives and Afterlives.

We invite papers from all disciplines, and encourage contributions from medievalists working on any geographic area. A seminar will also seek contributions; please look for its separate CFP soon. Participants in the Colloquium are generally limited to holders of a Ph.D.
