Michelle M. Sauer
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2022

I am editing the Companion to Sexuality of the Medieval West with Jenny Bledsoe for Arc Humanities. The projected publication date is early 2024. This volume is intended to be an update of the classical Bullough and Brundage volume, with a more inclusive approach.

We are looking someone to write on North Africa. The deadline for submission can be somewhat negotiable, but May 2023 would be ideal. The essay should 6,000-6,500 words, and use a broad approach rather than a specific argument (e.g., handbook style). Chicago style citations as appropriate. Use of images possible as well. All essays peer reviewed.

Please contact me for further details and/or with questions.

South Atlantic Review
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2022

Victorian literature in adaptation is a mix of “high” and “low” culture: filmmakers like Kenneth Branagh or Francis Ford Coppola might adapt the canonical literature of Mary Shelley or Bram Stoker into prestige films, while the same stories are remixed in comic books and parodied in TikToks.

Horror Homeroom's Special Issue #7: Found Footage Horror

In today’s media landscape, questions of authenticity, truth, and manipulation of fact are more pertinent than ever. While journalists herald the dawning of a ‘post-truth’ era, and deepfakes bring to a boiling point the anxiety of online communication and documentation, the subgenre of found footage horror seems to encapsulate a terror that is both commonplace and elusive. 

 

Sandman: The TV Series

Tara Prescott-Johnson, UCLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 15, 2022

After decades of failed attempts at interpreting the comic that many fans believed couldn’t be adapted, the Netflix series Sandman is now enjoying richly deserved critical and commercial success. The explosive popularity of the series follows on the heels of other recent television adaptations of Neil Gaiman’s work, most notably Good Omens (2019 Amazon) and American Gods (2017-2021 Starz). It is also fueling ongoing discussions about representation, social justice, and art's role in responding to and reflecting upon historical and cultural movements. This edited book collection seeks essays that delve into these issues and more.

Fantasy Literature: A Companion [UPDATE 2]

updated: 
Monday, September 19, 2022 - 7:01am
Editor Dr. Charul ("Chuckie") Palmer-Patel
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 1, 2022

While fantasy fiction has become incredibly popular and prolific in these last few decades, the appeal of fantastical literature dates back to antiquity, as mythologies, legends, and encounters with the supernatural have formed a large part of narrative traditions in every culture and language. This companion seeks to update and address underexamined areas of fantasy fiction, with the chief aim to provide a global introduction to English-language and English-translation fantasy fiction. This collection will focus on the contemporary written word (narrative prose) produced in late 20th and early 21st century.

Radical Transcendentalisms

Transcendentalism is readily understood to have been an American—and even a transatlantic—social reform movement, having played a significant role in antislavery efforts, women’s rights, and labor and educational reform. But reform is markedly different than radicalism. For this edited collection, we are interested in what nineteenth-century radicalism looked like, and the ways in which the Transcendentalist movement was intertwined with radical social practice and thought. We are interested in, for example, the historiographic and philosophic connections between radical workers’ movements in Europe and the rise of Transcendental social critique in the United States.

Hinduism Against Hindutva

 

In the summer of 2021, speakers at the Dismantling Global Hindutva conference stated: "In our advocacy, we state clearly that Hindutva ideology is not the same as the Hinduism that we aspire to, but we cannot deny that proponents of Hindutva are doing so as Hindus, in the name of a monolithic Hinduism. As Shana Sippy put it, not all Hinduism is Hindutva, but Hindutva is clearly one manifestation of Hinduism.”

Dissenting Beliefs Edited Collection: Heresy and Heterodoxy in Fantasy

updated: 
Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - 9:52pm
Centre for Fantasy and the Fantastic
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 3, 2022

Religious fantasy, for a great many readers, is synonymous with Christian fantasy; more specifically, it is understood as literature overtly reproducing biblical narratives within a fantasy world, such as C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia. Concurrently, fantasy texts engaging with theology through non-allegorical means that challenge mainstream Christian doctrine are all too often dismissed as disingenuous, offensive or deliberately antagonistic. While this is sometimes the case, such a narrow view of religious fantasy excludes all but the least innovative texts from the genre and leaves little room for authors of other faiths.
