DEADLINE EXTENSION - Special Issue - Spineless: Online Horror and Narrative Networks

Horror Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 6, 2017

With the current spate of contemporary high-budget properties that have sought to engage and adapt online horror content, increasing attention has been turned to communities of amateur critics, writers, illustrators, and fans that work to create horror in digital space. Their influence has been felt in a variety of media, from the television series Channel Zero and Supernatural, to the film The Tall Man and video games like Slender and SCP: Containment Breach. Fora in Something Awful, “r/nosleep”, and the SCP Foundation represent attempts by massive communities to create negotiated fictions, imagining mythic spaces and enduring, horrific creatures.

Comparative Drama Conference

April 5-7, 2018

Orlando, Florida

 

In light of the Broadway revival of M. Butterfly (opening in October 2017) we are particularly interested in receiving abstracts that address this production (some possible topics: Taymor’s vision of the play, Hwang’s changes to the play, the timeliness of M. Butterfly, the casting of Clive Owen as Gallimard, or a comparison with the original production).  Recognizing that not everyone will get a chance to see the play before abstracts are due, we also seek abstracts on the play in general.

Since the 1960s, marking a transition from a Friedian conception of artistic modernism to one turning around John Cage and his New York circle, performance art has forged a strong relationship to moving-image art writ large. Responding to technological developments across imaging, motion-capture, and virtual or augmented reality research, performance artists have created increasingly sophisticated works that defy ready classification.
