The Handbook to Horror Literature: Select Chapters Needed

updated: 
Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 12:24pm
Kevin Corstorphine and Laura Kremmel
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 30, 2017

Most handbooks on the subject of horror focus specifically on film, whereas books on the literary manifestations of horror tend to be bound to the idea of the “Gothic.” The current field of Gothic studies grows out of the study of Romanticism, and refers specifically to a late eighteenth-century genre, but has also come to denote a critical approach to literature, film, and culture, drawing on psychoanalysis, post structural criticism, feminist and queer theory. These perspectives are all to be included here, but the book responds to a growing sense that “horror” is itself a worthwhile focus of analysis.

Kritika Kultura
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 15, 2017

Food in the 21st century would be unrecognizable to our great grandparents. Canadian ecocritic Susie O’Brien has recently explained in an interview in ARIEL that “food is a rich site through which to think about a number of things: environment, colonialism, culture, affect, subjectivity, among others.” There is an urgency to theorizing about food, especially given the fact that hunger is seriously at odds with the promises of industrial agriculture. Indeed, according to Vandana Shiva, “industrial agriculture has not produced more food.

deadline for submissions:

Voyeurism functions in fiction in many ways: as state surveillance, as individual stalking, and even, arguably, in the acts of reading and writing. This panel will consider voyeurism through voyeur-tinged original fiction and critical papers both on voyeuristic works of fiction and on the voyeurism of the reader/writer/character relationship.
