I Am Already Dead: Essays on The CW's iZombie and Vertigo's iZOMBIE [Contracted with McFarland Publishers] (UPDATE)

updated: 
Monday, August 1, 2016 - 2:32pm
Ashley Szanter and Jessica K. Richards
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Editors Szanter and Richards seek original essays for an edited collection on Rob Thomas’s television series iZombie as well as the show’s graphic novel source material, Roberson and Allred’s iZOMBIE. This particular series has begun to overhaul modern constructions of the zombie in popular culture and media. While scholarship on the television zombie is not in short supply, particularly in regards to AMC’s The Walking Dead, we believe this particular show and comic series speak to a growing trend in zombie culture whereby the zombie “passes” as human—fully assimilating into normalized society.

Louis Owens (1948-2002) was one of the major voices of contemporary Native American literature and scholarship. His work includes five acclaimed novels, scholarly studies, and some one hundred essays.  The extensive oeuvre Owens produced includes writing on themes of mixed-blood identities, working-class life, travel, western American landscapes, the environment, survivance, tricksters, story-telling, and memory.  Owens was a scholar of international stature on John Steinbeck, a writer whose realism strongly influenced his own fiction.

FOLK NARRATIVES AND CULTURES OF THE NORTHEAST

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2017

We are inviting submissions for a forthcoming edited volume that analyse and survey folk narratives from India’s Northeast. The eight north-eastern states—Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Mizoram, Tripura, Assam, Manipur and Sikkim—have a wealth of narratives that are likely to function as alternative history beyond the generic cultural and geographical assumptions of the history of the Northeast as part of a ‘greater’ Indian history. The polyphonic potential of these narratives can be explored in multiple ways including historical, literary, sociological and political, but not exclusively such.
