CFP: Nightmare Before Christmas (Key Films/Filmmakers in Animation series, Bloomsbury)

Podcasting constitutes a new form of digital media which cannot be reduced to the phenomenon of which some would describe as the “Radio Renaissance” on the Internet. Moreover, podcasts have crossed over from a cultural niche to mainstream, as evidenced not only by a vast number of titles available on countless platforms and applications, but also by the increasing number of listeners and transmedia influences of podcasts in the form of TV series and literary adaptations (such as Lore, Welcome to Night Vale, Limetown and others).
With over seventy titles to his name and new ones in the making, Charles de Lint is among the most prolific writers of Canadian speculative fiction and a key representative of urban fantasy/mythic fiction. Given his vast literary output, several awards (including the World Fantasy Award in 2000 and the Aurora Award in 2013 and again in 2015), and a large gathering of devoted readers (if Facebook profiles such as “The Mythic Café, with Charles de Lint & Company” are any indication), it is more than surprising that his fiction has yet to become the subject of a full-length academic study. That is not to say, of course, that the academia is unaware of de Lint’s presence.

Reaching the Summit: Reimagining the Summit Series in the Canadian Cultural Memory
The year 2022 marks the upcoming fiftieth anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series. This hockey series, played between Canada and the former Soviet Union, has become the subject of Canadian cultural mythmaking since Paul Henderson’s winning goal for Canada during game eight. In Home Game: Hockey and Life in Canada (1989), Ken Dryden and Roy MacGregor identified the Summit Series as a uniquely “Canadian memory” and marked 1972 as a “coming of age” for Canada as a nation (195).
A Handbook of Indian Indie Cinema
Each year, a large number of Indian Indie films are released that suffer from lack of viewership even when it comes to their target audience, not to mention critical assessments: films that are regional, experimental in nature or have fresh, timely interventions. Many among these deserve recognition, not only from general audiences and moviegoers but also from film scholars and the academia. With the onset of streaming sites and OTT platforms, some of these have made it to the limelight, although a systematic handbook that discusses and features many of these films is currently, absent.
