Centering Blackness in Fan Studies **DEADLINE EXTENDED**

updated: 
Monday, January 16, 2023 - 10:02am
Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2023

This special issue centers Blackness in fandom studies. Fandom studies has gestured toward race generally, and Blackness in particular, from its alleged white center while always keeping race at its margin. It has largely co-opted the language of race, difference, and diversity from the margins and recentered it around white geeks and white women. Indeed, fandom studies has done lots of things—except deal with its race problem. But as Toni Morrison (1975) asserts, that is the work of racism: it keeps those at the margins busy, trying to prove that they deserve a seat at the center table.

This themed edition of Crime Fiction Studies, “Gender in Crime” (March 2024, guest edited by Kerstin-Anja Münderlein), will examine the ways in which Crime Fiction as a genre incorporates and (re-)negotiates gender and sex, and represents and/or questions normativity and deviance in gender and sexual identities throughout its own generic developments and also in regard to true crime and historical events.

Call for Papers - Creature Redux: Considering the Pasts, Presents, and Futures of Chimera in Fiction and Popular Culture

Animals are the quotidian absolute Other. They are not inherently horrifying, dangerous, or invasive; nor do they have designs to usurp or subjugate humanity. In his lecture-turned-book The Animal That Therefore I Am, Derrida critiques the use of the word “animal” to describe an almost limitless array of creatures. “Animal” becomes a catch-all term for everything that is otherwise than human–and not the biological entity, but a specific, constructed hegemonic entity.

"Causes explain because causes make the difference between the phenomenon occurring and its not occurring. This is connected to the idea of control, since we control effects through causes that make a difference, causes without which the effect would not occur."

Small Screen Supers: Essays on Superhero Television

academic anthology edited by Anna F. Peppard & Dru Jeffries
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2023

Call for Papers: Small Screen Supers: Essays on Superhero Television 

As superhero films have proliferated, so too has superhero television. But as scholarship on superhero films has similarly proliferated, scholarship on superhero television has not. When superhero television is discussed by scholars, it is often as an offshoot of filmic franchises rather than as a phenomenon in its own right, with its own histories and contexts of production, its own approaches to adaptation, and its own dynamics of reception.

New technologies have often been viewed with strong skepticism for instance the advent of photography transformed painting, the introduction of vehicles substituted horse-carriages and the emergence of cinema replaced books. Plato’s horror over the destruction of ‘memory’ with the invention of ‘writing’ is perhaps synonymous to the inherent connection between ‘literature’ and ‘film’. In the preface of The Nigger of the Narcissus, Conrad states, “My task which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel-it is, before all, to make you see” (1897). Griffith declares that the task of a filmmaker is the same as the novelist’s, to make people see through cinema.

University of Silesia in Katowice
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2023

Robert Bird’s study of Andrei Tarkovsky’s cinema, published in 2008, was given a significant yet ambiguous subtitle: Elements of Cinema. Looking for the key to understanding the famous director’s films, the author took as guides “four traditional elements of matter, each captured through the distinct elements of cinema that conditioned Tarkovsky's work, from 'system' and 'imagination' to 'screen', 'image', 'story' and 'shot'”. Images of the elements, with their culturally defined symbolism – Earth as a vessel for nostalgia, water as the universal element of art and a medium of representation – became the building blocks of the unique atmosphere of Tarkovsky's films.

This collection initially examines cinematic, televisual, literary, visual and poetic representations of body parts who are vitalized, autonomized, individuated and animated. They become independent entities with a mind of their own. Instead of being parts of intricate mechanisms, these organs turn into independent, humanized and personified "bodies."
