Supernatural Studies (ISSN 2325-4866), a new, peer-reviewed journal welcomes article and book review submissions for its first two issues (Spring and Fall 2013). We welcome articles on any aspect of the representation of the supernatural.
Standing submission dates are March 1 and October 1.
The journal focuses on representations of the supernatural in popular culture, including (but not limited to) art, literature, film, and television. We welcome any approach, but request that authors minimize jargon associated with any single-discipline studies.
I invite proposals on the relation between terrorism and temporality for a special session at the 2014 MLA Convention in Chicago. Notions of temporality are central to terrorism, from the attempt to destroy the home of Greenwich mean time in Joseph Conrad's _Secret Agent_, to Frantz Fanon's claim that anticolonial violence can "embody history," to the pervasive belief that 9/11 ushered in a new era. How do terrorist literary narratives reflect, respond to, or reconfigure notions of temporality, including but not limited to chronology, periodization, history, the present, Jetztzeit, futurity, the new, the "post-," or repetition? 250-word abstracts by 15 March 2013 to Todd Kuchta (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Appologies if you received multiple copies of this WNM-2013 CFP.
