Popular Entertainment Studies e-Journal, Vol 2:2 (Sept 2011) call for submissions
Call for Papers Date:
The latest issue of “Popular Entertainment Studies” (Vol. 2, no.1), an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the investigation of all aspects of popular entertainments, has now been published and is accessible at: http://www.newcastle.edu.au/journal/popular-entertainment-studies/.
It is an open access journal and needs no login registration.
The issue contains some of the same wide-ranging scholarship that informed previous issues: from monstrosities and caricature, to mountain bike racing and site-specific performance, with the Renaissance Fool and the Maori 'haka' in between.
Expressions of interest are invited from scholars and scholar/practitioners to contribute to the next issue of the journal. We would be particularly interested in articles which address aspects of theatre and performance history, genres like pantomime, burlesque and musical comedy, biographies of performers, techniques of performance, crossovers between "high art" and popular forms within the historical and contemporary contexts. However, other topics of specialist interest are always welcome.
Initial expressions of interest should be sent as soon as possible to the General Editor, Victor Emeljanow, Victor;Emeljanow@newcastle.edu.au
The next issue will be published in September 2011 and the cutoff date for the submission of final versions of articles is July 18, 2011.
