Call for Proposals: It's About Perspective Podcast

 

This newly launching podcast, It's About Perspective, strives to explore topics surrounding horror, gothic, science fiction, fantasy, the supernatural and other subgenres. Each season will extract a topic for analysis and discussion. The opening season will begin with lycanthropy. There are no boundaries, whether it be based on constructions and roots, an argument on the 'good' versus 'bad' werewolf or on anti-werewolf imagery, all engaging arguments and perspectives are welcome. This is deliberately broad to encourage a variety of contributions and keep each episode new and interesting. 

Topics may include but are in no way limited to the following:

  • Origins
  • Nature and environment
  • Art
  • Religion
  • Literature
  • Fairy tales and mythology
  • Film and television 
  • Popular culture
  • Feminist perspective
  • Identity

The ultimate goal of this podcast is to engage with academics, though this is not a requirement, across a range of disciplines and develop upon unusual areas. Special episodes may be developed after the season to revisit papers and speak to guests. 

Please send an abstract of no more than 300 words and short bio to Chloe at itsaboutperspectivepodcast@gmail.com by September 30th.

Proposed papers should aim to be between 15-20 minutes in length, if you require more time please feel free to contact the above email to discuss a possible two-part series.

This CFP is open to all, as it will be pre-recorded and distributed remotely.
