I am seeking a few additional essays to round out an insightful anthology pertaining to the topic of television stardom. More specifically, I am looking for theoretically informed contributions that explore stardom as a complex, intriguing social phenomenon in relation to television, during any decade(s) from the 1950s to the present. Possible topics may include, but are certainly not limited to, early television stardom, stardom and consumption, reality-television ‘stars,’ stars in the news, and studies of individual stars (past or present). Disciplines relevant to this project include anthropology, communication, cultural studies, GLBT studies, history, sociology, television studies, and women’s studies.
Previously unpublished essay submissions must be typed (doubled spaced) using 12-point Times font and one-inch margins on all sides.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, 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 September 30, 2006. Please mail or e-mail one copy of your completed essay to: Kylo-Patrick Hart, Chair, Department of Communication and Media Studies, Plymouth State University, 17 High Street, MSC 60, Plymouth, NH 03264; firstname.lastname@example.org
For specific inquiries prior to submitting your essay, please contact Kylo-Patrick Hart at (603) 535-3122.
