CFP: Pro-Wrestling anthology (9/30/04; collection)

Sunday, July 25, 2004 - 2:51pm
Leon Hunt

The editors of The Pro-Wrestling Book are seeking essays on all aspects of Professional Wrestling. The book's starting point is that wrestling, notwithstanding its 'low' cultural status, is an important topic for analysis both for its intrinsic qualities and for what it tells us about culture and entertainment. The book proposes to deal with wrestling in broad terms, inevitably exploring the powerful WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) organisation, but also looking at other styles and traditions. Accordingly, the book will consider the historical development of wrestling and the role it has played in different cultures.

Call for Papers
Broadcasting Modernism

Abstracts are invited for a volume on the relations between Modernist literature and aspects of radio. Abstracts might treat either the influence of radio on literary production, or the impact of literary production on the forms of broadcasting activity. As an alternative outlet for creative expression, radio employed many writers and poets in the dissemination of culture via the public/national radio services of the B.B.C. or the C.B.C, or via U. S. commercial stations. Papers treating this topic in other languages are also welcome, as is commentary on the differing practices and impact of commercial vs. national broadcasting systems.
