CALL FOR PAPERS

 

SLASH 2: THE 2nd DMU FANFICTION STUDY DAY

 

Faculty of Humanities, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK.

 

Tuesday 27th February 2007

10.00 am - 6.00 pm

 

After the success of last year's Slash Fiction Study Day, Slash 2 offers
another slash-friendly forum for discussion of the most exciting
developments in fanfic.

 

The main focus will be on slash fiction, a category of fan stories, almost
exclusively by women, about homoerotic affairs between male characters in
popular films and TV series. Proposals are invited, however, for papers on
all fanfic topics and controversies. Contributions are especially welcome
for panels on fan films, yaoi and Brokeback Mountain.

 

Please send an abstract of 200 words for a 20 minute paper to Dr Ian Hunter,
iqhunter_at_dmu.ac.uk or to the following address:

 

Dr Ian Hunter

Principal Lecturer in Film Studies

Faculty of Humanities

De Montfort University

Clephan Building

The Gateway

Leicester LE1 9BH

 

DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: 15th December 2006

 

All readers, writers and academic researchers of fan fiction, as well as
interested members of the public, are welcome to participate. Delegates at
the Redemption 2007 Conference might wish to stay over for Slash 2: the two
events are both in Leicestershire, UK.

 

There will be an attendance fee. Please contact Ian Hunter at
<mailto:iqhunter_at_dmu.ac.uk> iqhunter_at_dmu.ac.uk to reserve a place.

 

Slash 2 launches a series of regular seminar and lecture events hosted by
the Cult Media Research Group.
