Michel-Rolph Trouillot closed his 1995 Silencing the Past by reminding us that “History doesn’t belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it in their own hands.” This is nowhere more true than in two historical periods seldom in conversation - the medieval phenomenon called the “Crusades,” and the 19th-century American Civil War. Scholars here seek to clarify these periods among themselves, while popular audiences voraciously consume these and other retellings of the past, and others on the political left and right “take it in their own hands” by toppling monuments or explicitly evoking these periods as direct predecessors of their own.

I am looking for a scholar to write an entry on “Domestic Violence” for Violence in American Society: An Encyclopedia of Trends, Problems, and Perspectives. Unfortunately, I had this entry fall through—someone cancelled last-minute and now I’m scrabbling to find a writer able to take on the subject, which would generally include violence at home, often (but not always) directed at children and spouses. The entry would look at historical, contemporary, and mediated depictions of domestic violence in the United States.

Open call for papers

The Journal of the British Fantasy Society contains a mix of academic papers, reviews, interviews and feature articles. We are looking for submissions from people who are primarily researching fantasy, but we are also interested in the related fields of horror, science fiction, folklore etc. Our contributors and readers have interests across many genres and in many media: literature, comics, movies, music, oral histories and so on.

We are keen to hear about contemporary works, but are also happy to receive submissions about works, creators or areas that have fallen by the wayside over the years.
