Call for Essays: Stranger Things: Eighties Nostalgia, Cynicism and Innocence
I am looking for proposals for chapters for a book on the Netflix series Stranger Things to be published by McFarland & Company. As the book title suggests, the overarching theme of the volume is how the series creates, evokes, uses and exploits the eighties, eighties culture and contemporary nostalgia for both. Successful proposals will link an aspect of Stranger Things with an eighties counterpart and explore how the series engages that aspect of Reagan-era culture.

For its twenty-seventh issue, InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture invites scholarly articles and creative works that address the complex and multiple meanings of speculative visions.
The last decade has seen a rise in popularity among science fiction, fantasy, and horror. These genres encourage the capacity to imagine post-human bodies, extraordinary worlds, techno-utopias, and claustrophobic spaces of violence. In their reliance upon the imagination, these speculative visions provide a space to consider contradictions and a carnivalesque interaction between popular culture and critical theory.

Call for Papers: Identity
52nd Annual Comparative World Literature Conference
April 11-12, 2017
California State University, Long Beach
Identity is inescapable and in constant flux. It can be located in the body, in the discourse that surrounds and determines bodies, or in the more nebulous realm of language. From race, class, gender, and orientation to professional, personal, familial, and cultural identities, we all negotiate multiple aspects of identity in our daily lives and our conceptions of ourselves.
