CFP: Edited Collection on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Netflix 2018-20)

But few series come close to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s devotion to that idea.

seeking panelists for 2017 SHCY conference

I would like to put together a panel for the 2017 SHCY conference on children/adolescents whose activities transgressed gender roles. My own paper would be on 20th century boys who took ballet class in America, but other papers could certainly center on different times and places.  If you are interested in participating on such a panel, please email me at
