Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Edited Collection

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 25, 2018

The CW’s show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has attracted considerable critical acclaim, including creator and star Rachel Bloom’s Golden Globe for Best Actress and Emmy awards for choreography and editing. Because of its female creator, screenwriter, and directors, its hybrid form as a television musical comedy, and its blatant engagement with “sexist term[s]” and mental illness, the show is ripe for feminist media analysis. I seek proposals for papers for an edited collection on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

From Amy Heckerling’s 1995 film Clueless to Seth Graham-Smith’s 2016 novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (and its many adaptations),and from Sherri Browning Erwin’s 2011 novel Grave Expectations to Thomas Vinterberg’s 2015 film Far from the Madding Crowd, the proliferation of adaptations of nineteenth century texts does not look to abate soon, and scholars have been taking notice. Adaptation offers a new way to consume both nineteenth century culture and canonical texts. We are seeking submissions of papers exploring adaptations of Nineteenth Century literature in new genres and/or mediums. Abstracts should be no more than 300 words.
