In the world of teen drama (or YA drama, as some prefer), there are a number of ways to represent adolescence and its attendant horrors, and we’ve seen a great deal of fantasy-based approaches; beginning with Buffy, some establish that high school is actual hell. But few series come close to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s devotion to that idea. The Netflix series (2018-20), based on the Archie Comics spin-off and featuring a much darker version of Sabrina Spellman, may be difficult for audiences to reconcile with ABC’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the previous adaptation. While one is a teen sitcom in which Sabrina’s powers get her into wacky situations, and she is supported by a talking Salem the cat, the other might feel closer to The Craft.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

In 2003 Peter Lang published The Emperor’s Old Groove: Decolonizing Disney’s Magic Kingdom, edited by Brenda Ayres. In this collection of 14 essays, the contributors argue that as of 2002, Disney’s film animation has continued to be a surreptitious colonizing force that manipulates the psychological, cultural, and political identities of consumers, predominantly children. Since then, Walt Disney Animation Studios and its subsidiaries, affiliates, and distributing companies have produced 63 additional film animations. Have they altered their portrayal of multiculturalism and SGM (Sexual and Gender Minorities) to be more inclusive and  normative? Coeditors Brenda Ayres and Sarah E.

Journal of Science Fiction Special Issue on Young Adult Speculative Fiction

updated: 
Tuesday, June 8, 2021 - 11:18am
MOSF Journal of Science Fiction
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, August 1, 2021

Young adult (YA) speculative fiction routinely engages with many of life’s most important questions: love, death, relationships, the future of the planet, identity, belonging, and our very future as human beings. Whether styled after the classical bildungsroman or otherwise, coming of age narratives in the speculative genre encourage readers to challenge existing power structures and advocate self-expression and self-confidence. They also return agency to those often divested of power by the institutional and social structures that restrict freedoms based on age, and recenter the adolescent as a critical social figure.
