I am seeking a few additional essays to round out an insightful anthology pertaining to the topic of media and deviancy. More specifically, I am looking for intriguing, theoretically informed contributions that explore noteworthy representations of ‘deviancy,’ broadly defined, in various media forms (e.g., film, television, the Internet, newspapers, books, etc.) and pertaining to any historical era. Submissions that explore media representations of deviancy in relation to adolescence/adolescents, GLBT individuals or communities, HIV/AIDS, and/or stars and celebrities are especially encouraged, although essays pertaining to any aspect of media and popular culture are welcome. Disciplines relevant to this project include anthropology, communications, cultural studies, film studies, GLBT studies, history, literature, media studies, popular culture, sociology, television studies, and women’s studies.
Essay submissions should be typed (doubled spaced) using 12-point Times font and one-inch margins on all sides. As a general rule, essays following these format guidelines should fall between 15 to 25 pages, although shorter or longer submissions will certainly be considered. Any standard style of academic citation (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.) is acceptable for now, with the understanding that authors will eventually have to conform their manuscripts to the citation style preferred by the anthology’s publisher. To enable blind peer review, please include your name, complete contact information (institutional affiliation, snail-mail and e-mail addresses, daytime telephone number), and essay title on a detachable cover sheet; with the exception of your essay title, please do not repeat this information on your first page of text.
The submission deadline is a bit tight, as this project is moving forward quickly. In order to be considered, completed essays must be received no later than February 10, 2006. Please mail or e-mail one copy of your completed essay to Kylo-Patrick Hart at the address below.
For specific inquiries prior to submitting your essay, please contact Kylo-Patrick Hart at (603) 535-3122.
