SECOND CALL: Essays on Race and Racism in The Vampire Diaries Franchise, under contract with McFarland Press

updated: 
Wednesday, June 5, 2024 - 2:52pm
Deanna P. Koretsky, Spelman College
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 1, 2024

Essays are invited for an edited volume exploring the role that race and racism play in the narrative worlds of The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Legacies, as well as the real world that consumes them. This volume explores how race intersects with other identity categories (gender, sexuality, disability, class, etc.) in the television and book series; how it structures power and agency in the storyworlds and behind the scenes; how it permeates the fan cultures associated with the franchise; and how ongoing fascination with the franchise reflects the tumultuous years of the Obama and Trump presidencies, the coronavirus pandemic, the racial uprisings of 2020, and beyond.

One of the primary challenges in confronting the climate crisis is effectively representing its magnitude and impact on both the environment and humanity. The quest for a sustainable future cannot be fulfilled without the capacity of imagining one. As Timothy Clark argues in his work on scale framing (Ecocriticism on the Edge, 2015), the act of imagining requires placing concepts within specific temporal and contextual frameworks. Envisioning the complex effects and mechanisms of climate change necessitates grappling with unprecedented and expansive scales. Environmental fiction has emerged as a literary field that attempts to capture these scales and their interplays.

In 1971, when the Cuban government launched the Anniversary of the Triumph of the Revolution Crime Fiction award, local literary critics were acutely aware of the genre’s roots in a capitalist setting. Yet, José Antonio Portuondo considered that crime fiction could serve a purpose within a Communist framework of life, provided it underwent adaptation to suit the new context. Over the following years, Cuban journals published numerous programmatic texts aimed at guiding writers willing to produce what would be termed Revolutionary crime fiction. Similar adjustments took place in other Soviet bloc countries, albeit with varying degrees of success and popularity.
