Call for Papers
Refractory: A Journal of Entertainment Media
Special Themed Edition for 2004: Space and Fandom
Apologies for cross-postings.
This issue of Refractory explores the spatial dynamics of fandom, conceived broadly to encompass works addressing issues of internet culture, globalization, travel, conventions, private/public sphere, nationality, and spatial metaphors within fandom, including fanfiction. Articles are sought that examine fandom on macro and micro levels. As a journal of entertainment media, a range of fan texts across various media are welcomed, as well as both contemporary and historical works. Papers are sought that take new approaches to texts that have a history of fan scholarship, but also less-known or less-studied texts that might bring a new perspective to fan studies. The aim of the special edition is to bring together articles examining a wide range of texts. Please submit completed articles of 3,000-7,000 words to the guest editor Djoymi Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org) electronically as a rich text format document (hard copies will not be returned) by March 31, 2004. For style details, please consult the journal website. Refractory is a fully refereed journal. All submissions will be anonymously peer reviewed before acceptance.
