The original CFP for this collection had the wrong word count for submissions. The corrected CFP follows:

Shelves and shelves have been filled with scholarly attention to baseball in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.; likewise, shelves and shelves have been devoted to the study of humor (in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.). Yet, surprisingly little has been said about the relationship between the two.

Proposed is a collection of new essays on the relationship between humor and baseball (in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.). Topics might include, but certainly are not limited to:

Call for papers
Special issue of *Social Semiotics*:

Mediated Citizenship(s)

The concept of citizenship is under attack and revision from all sides.
Scholars, politicians and pundits alike decry the decline of participation in
conventional politics. Some view mass media as the culprits of growing
disenchantment among citizens. At the same time, recent years have also seen the
rise of new social movements and forms of activism, which involve new
generations of citizens. Global flows of capital, people, and media content
present new challenges to citizenship.

Cannibalism and Eating the "Other": Stories of Human Cuisine

Deadline for submissions has been extended to July 1, 2005.

This mainstream book will feature a collection of stories, both
fiction and non-fiction, that explores the dangerous transgressive
desire to eat human flesh and how various cultures interpret this
behavior.

What is it about this subject that, simultaneously, fascinates and repulses us?

Is cannibalism as universally condemned as is commonly assumed?

At what point does it become acceptable? In what contexts is
cannibalism a regular part of societies, past and present?
