The Bulletin of the International Association for Robin Hood Studies is seeking essays for an issue devoted to examining the recent film Robin Hood (2018), directed by Otto Bathurst and starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn, Eve Hewson, and Jamie Dornan. The journal’s editors are interested in brief, focused, critical essays that explore how the film addresses current issues in medieval studies, including, but not limited to

  • Race in medieval and (neo)medievalist texts and political spaces
  • Representations of gender and sexuality
  • The “canon” or “corpus” of the Robin Hood tradition
  • Landscapes and storyscapes as negotiated and contested zones
  • Games and gaming culture as sources for and analogues to film

The deadline for submissions is April 2, 2020. We ask that essay be no longer than 3,000 words, including footnotes, and that submissions be formatted in Chicago, 17th edition. Authors interested in submitting essays must first create a free online account on the journal’s website, and the submission and process is done electronically through the journal’s CMS:

The Bulletin of the International Association for Robin Hood Studies is the double-blind, peer-reviewed, open-access journal of the IARHS and is actively indexed by the MLA Directory of Periodicals.
