REMINDER! "Fandoms and Platforms" special issue, Transformative Works and Cultures

updated: 
Monday, October 31, 2022 - 3:31pm
guest editors
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 1, 2023

Fandom today is often entangled with digital platforms, which offer spaces and features that make some aspects of fan culture more widely accessible amid increasingly globalized communities and models of consumption. Fans are perceived to be early adopters of new technologies, particularly those that provide space for gathering and community building. Likewise, many types of fan works, fan labor, and fandom participation depend on certain platforms for hosting, sharing, distributing, and discussing such content. However, fans also have complicated relationships with platforms, whether because their needs and uses are in conflict with other stakeholders or because platforms can generate and challenge notions of access, accountability, and community.

Sneaker Studies: A Call for Papers

Sneakers have constituted one of the most significant cultural phenomena in recent history, and yet they have not garnered sustained attention by scholars of humanities and cultural studies. This project, an online sneaker archive will consider how specific shoes have become icons of their historical eras. This is a second call for papers this time with a more focused question.  We are interested in studies of specific athletes as pitchmen and their changing relationship with signature shoes or shoe lines.

Contagions and Non-Human Animals: (Re)Viewing Disregarded Species in Real and Imagined Pandemics

Due to the pandemic and a personal issue that delayed publication, this CFP from late 2020 is being reopened. I am looking for 3 to 4 essays to add to what I have. Below is the premise for the volume.

--

The impact of the pandemic and the threat that it poses to future human experiences has been well-documented. However, now that non-human animals are possible carriers and becoming infected, their experiences, while often overlooked, are nevertheless integrated into the worldwide pandemic.

Call for Chapter Proposals: New Perspectives on the Metal Gear Solid Series (edited collection)

 

Editors: Steven Kielich (University at Buffalo) and Chris Hall (University of the Ozarks)

 

In 2015, Hideo Kojima and his company Kojima Productions split from Konami after the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Kojima’s departure from Konami marked an unfortunate, but understandable, end to the Metal Gear Solid series. Now, in this “post-Phantom Pain” era, it has become both possible and essential to make a retrospective study of the critically, commercially, and culturally resonant series that was Metal Gear Solid.

Perry Mason and The Case of America’s Favorite Lawyer

updated: 
Monday, October 24, 2022 - 11:40am
Elizabeth Erwin & Dawn Keetley
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 8, 2023

Erle Stanley Gardner’s Perry Mason has been a vibrant part of the cultural conversation for nearly 90 years. The titular trial lawyer with a penchant for detective work first debuted in the novel The Case of the Velvet Claws (1933), setting in motion a publishing streak that would eventually become the third best selling series of all time. Successful radio, film, and television adaptations soon followed, solidifying the character’s presence within the cultural lexicon. Indeed, Perry Mason’s crossover appeal demonstrates a cultural importance that transcends medium and generational divide.

Led by articles emerging from the Brontë Society’s conference, ‘I wished to tell the truth’: Anne Brontë at 200 that was originally scheduled for 2020 but, due to the pandemic, was reorganised and held online in 2021, the Special Issue presents an ideal opportunity to challenge the long-held perception that the youngest Brontë sibling was the least talented and lacked the genius of her sisters. With Anne Brontë’s marginalisation in mind, potential topics for articles to be explored could include, but are not limited to, the following:

Get It While It’s Hot: Gas Station, Roadside, and Convenience Cuisine in the US South

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 16, 2022

Convenience stores and gas stations that serve food exist nationwide, yet the full meal options available to patrons in the US South appears to be something of an anomaly. The menus at these southern roadside establishments look like they could be found at any restaurant, offering items from fried chicken and potato logs to collard greens and cornbread to sausage biscuits and roast beef po-boys. But unlike traditional or fast food restaurants, gas stations and other roadside food providers are sustained by the traveler. For the traveler, roadside or gas station food allows a brief respite and the comfort of hot food while away from home.

Why do we do what we do in the field of literary studies? Why does it matter? To whom? What redemptive or transformative work does literature do? When? Where? How? We invite reflection and conversation about the different kinds of work literature does to and through writers, readers, teachers, thinkers, and scholars. Our topic is intentionally broad as we seek to inspire, encourage, and celebrate the creation, interpretation, and appreciation of literature from any historical period and any genre. Our format is inclusive with panels for professors, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as scholars from multiple disciplines including English, Modern Languages, Theology, Education, Psychology, Science, and Humanities.

Call for Book Chapters: "A Vain Talent (?): Anne Brontë and the Question of Female Artistry

updated: 
Sunday, October 16, 2022 - 8:29pm
Vernon Press
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2022

We are seeking chapter submissions for an edited anthology on Anne Brontë and the question of female artistry. Though interest and scholarship in Anne has grown in recent years, the youngest Brontë sister is still the least known and researched. Her bicentennial in 2020 was interrupted by the pandemic, and so there was not the same celebration and promotion of her life and work as her sisters.

 

This anthology seeks chapters on the question of female artistry as it relates to Anne’s life and work. Topics may include (but are not limited to):

 

  • The art (paintings, sketches, etc.) of Anne Brontë

  • Anne Brontë’s artistry as an author

Dear Colleagues,

We are looking for proposals for the second volume of Screening Sex: The Sex Scene.

The Sex Scene: Representation, Performance, Aesthetics is the second of two volumes that will launch the Screening Sex book series with Edinburgh University Press (the first: The Sex Scene: Space, Place, Industry). We are open to essays that will interrogate the form, function, politics and significance of the sex scene in film, television and beyond. Taking the ‘sex scene’ as a critical starting point for the book series, the two edited collections offer a critical exploration of the significance of sex on screen and in sexual cultures, combining original research with a review of existing and current literature and debates.
