Fantastika Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 1, 2022

“Fantastika” – a term appropriated from a range of Slavonic languages by John Clute – embraces the genres of Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Gothic Horror, but can also include Alternate History, Steampunk, Young Adult Dystopic Fiction, or any other radically imaginative narrative space. Our goal is to bring together academics, independent researchers, creators, and audiences who share an interest in this diverse range of fields with the aim of opening up new dialogues, productive controversies, and critical collaborations.

Each year, Rhetoric Society Quarterly publishes a special issue, the aims of which are to help set the intellectual agenda in rhetorical studies, encourage focused statements on timely topics in rhetorical studies by scholars working in related areas, attract participation by top scholars, and stimulate scholarly activity within the Rhetoric Society of America, such as pre-conference colloquia, convention sessions, and workshops. Recent special issues have addressed relations between rhetoric and disability (2020), demagoguery (2019), and the more-than-human (2017), to name only three examples. As Rhetoric Society Quarterly’s incoming associate editor for special issues, I am pleased to invite proposals for the 2023 special issue.

Myth and Art

updated: 
Wednesday, December 1, 2021 - 12:34pm
Interdisciplinary Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

“Myth and Art” will explore the interrelation of the multiple functions of myth, literature, and art, as well as the interpretation of mythological narratives and their visual depictions. The main approach will be inter-textual and inter-media in nature and the contributors will grapple with and attempt to answer several questions: How do artists incorporate myths into their own works of art? How are the combinations of myth and art interpreted by ancient and modern day spectators? Are there differences and similarities in those interpretations? What factors (psychological, religious, political, financial, etc.) influenced the selection of the myth and the artistic medium?
