Representation of queer identities in twenty-first century popular television has undergone massive shifts in the last decade. Whilst queer representation has formed part of the bedrock of reality television, queer representation in scripted television has received less scholarly attention. Thus, scripted television will be the focus of this special issue of Queer Studies in Media & Popular Culture (Intellect).

Special Issue on Howard Jacobson

Tuesday, February 2, 2021

European Judaismis pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue devoted to the Man Booker-Prize-winning novelist, Howard Jacobson.

As David Brauner writes in his recently published monograph, Howard Jacobson is a protean figure:

            A Leavisite moralist with a puritanical streak, and a chronicler of dark sexual obsessions and perversions; a highly serious humanist intellectual and a hilariously comic provocateur; a passionate polemicist and an ardent advocate of ‘ambiguity and contradiction’; the author of (in his own words) ‘the most Jewish novel that has ever been written by anybody, anywhere’, whose literary heroes are Jane Austen and D.H. Lawrence, Jacobson revels in ambivalence.

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).

DELVING INTO URBAN MYTHS: THE WORKS OF CHARLES DE LINT

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.
