Co-editors Jennifer C. Garlen and Anissa M. Graham are currently seeking proposals for an anthology of intersectional feminist essays examining the past and present of Star Trek. Proposals may engage any of the Trek films, television series, or related media (games, books, convention culture, etc). At this time, we are particularly interested in proposals that represent LGBTQ+ and BIPOC perspectives. Graduate students and independent scholars are welcome to submit proposals. Accepted contributors will receive author credit for their work as well as a free copy of the final publication, pending acceptance of the book proposal by an academic publisher. Proposals should include a working title, a brief (1-2 paragraph) summary, and relevant personal or academic background. For questions or proposal submissions please email Jennifer at

Jennifer and Anissa are the co-editors of two previous essay anthologies for McFarland: Kermit Culture (2009) and The Wider Worlds of Jim Henson (2013). Both have also contributed to several academic essay anthologies about film, television, and popular culture.
