Feminist Spaces 2.2 (Spring/Summer 2016)
Abstracts are invited for an essay collection, Keats in Popular Culture.
Although Keats's literary legacy and influence on Victorian, Modernist and Post-Modernist literature has been explored in some depth, his impact on popular culture—particularly in the 21st century—has yet to be fleshed out. This collection seeks essays that examine Keats's significant presence in film, television, music, comics, video games, memes, science fiction, architecture and design, matters of taste, cultural criticism, popular science, psychology and philosophy.
Interested parties, please send 500-word abstracts by June 15, 2016 to Brian Bates at firstname.lastname@example.org.
