We are seeking abstracts for inclusion in a proposal for an edited volume on the subject of steampunk. The anthology will present a varied look at steampunk culture and criticism, presenting a comprehensive look at the genreā€™s impact and development in the fields of art and material cultural. Accordingly, we seek proposals that explore any of a range of iterations of the genre. These may include, for example, analysis of:

Steampunk fiction
Steampunk film
Steampunk visual art
Steampunk fashion
Steampunk performance
Steampunk fan culture
Steampunk in relationship to preceding science fiction and -punk genres
Steampunk and feminism
Steampunk and postcolonial paradigms
Steampunk and Victorian studies
Steampunk and technology studies

We hope to present this collection as of interest to both steampunk enthusiasts and non-specialists in the genre, as well as both academic and generalist readers. With this in mind, please submit proposals that are steeped in steampunk culture and criticism, that could be of interest to a generalist audience, and that have a strong sense of the stakes of steampunk analysis for broader cultural studies.

Submit 500 word proposals to Brian Croxall (brian.croxall@gmail.com) and Rachel Bowser (rachel.bowser@gmail.com) by 1 October 2012.
