CFP: Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels, Past and Future (Extension to 3/31/18)

This edited volume will offer an opportunity for authors to investigate the ways in which blackness is reimagined in both mainstream and independent comics. Specifically, I propose responding to the following questions: What are the ways in which heroism is redefined by black characters? How are black futures reimagined? What gendered arguments are made through this medium? What are the challenges in presenting to black audiences in this largely white genre? How do the creators depict the continent of Africa and/or communities in the African Diaspora?

Deadline Approaching - Horror Comes Home (edited collection; abstracts 1/15/18)

CFP: Horror Comes Home

Deadline for Abstracts: 1/15/18; Essays: 8/1/18

The horror genre in film and television is no stranger to images of home. As Carol Clover notes, most horror occurs within a “terrible place,” often a space that, in fact, represents home, transforming it from a refuge to a prison or a supernatural battleground.
