journals and collections of essays
This anthology is seeking to define the new kinds of heroines that science fiction/fantasy films and television are producing right now (it may be split into two collections between these types). Multiple proposals are fine (certainly, non-genre programs are doing the same, but for the time being the scope will be limited to scifi and fantasy films). Hunger Games has been chosen as the cutting-off point – films and television should be later than 2012 and have significant heroines. Though the term is imperfect, these heroines will be described as fourth wave feminist – the authors in the collection can be the trendsetters who help define the term.
Recent developments in neo-Victorian cultural production seem to have at least partially acknowledged the steadfast urge put forth by actors, readers/viewers, and critics to include Black experiences in their storyworlds. TV formats like Penny Dreadful (2014-2016), The Frankenstein Chronicles (2015- ), Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (2015-), and Peaky Blinders (2013- ) as well as films such as Wuthering Heights (2011), Belle (2013), and Lady Macbeth (2017) feature Black characters as part of their screenscape.
http://aim.org.pt/ojs/index.php/revista/announcement/view/38 This thematic dossier focuses on the critical appreciation of particular television series, while also examining the distinctive practice of writing television criticism. Our understanding of television criticism echoes that of Alex Clayton and Andrew Klevan in their edited volume The Language and Style of Film Criticism (Routledge, 2011). It is a form of writing that addresses television series “as potential achievements and wishes to convey their distinctiveness and quality (or lack of it)” (Clayton and Klevan 1).

Contributions are sought for an interdisciplinary collection of essays on the Hallmark television channels to be published by McFarland & Co. We are interested in a sustained exploration of the television channel and brand as a cultural phenomenon. At the end of 2017, The Washington Postpublished an article entitled “We can’t take any more of 2017, so we’ve turned to the Hallmark Channel in desperation.” The article described men and women – but mostly women – engaging in a particular brand of escapism from the seemingly daily barrage of bad news: watching Hallmark Channel original movies.
This special issue will focus on ideas of reuse and recombination. How were bits and scraps of materials, textual and otherwise, reassembled into new forms in the nineteenth century? To what ends? Essays might consider these issues in relation to images, fabrics, texts, and more. Possible topics could include scrapbooks, patchwork, quotation, citation, illustration, and any and all forms of recombination. Approaches from all disciplines, including literature, art history, history, music, and the history of science and the social sciences, are welcome, as are submissions that cross national boundaries and/or range across the nineteenth century.
