Recently we had been seeking submissions for a reader, a collection of essays on the popular and critically acclaimed series Justified (FX). We have had many great submissions and have been given the opportunity to turn this project into the first issue of the new academic journal Series/Season/Show. This allows us to invite more contributors to this first issue.
Topics can include but are not limited to the following:
• Issues of class in American Television • Depictions and interpretations of the current financial crisis on TV • Religion and religiosity in American TV series • Depictions of contemporary race issues in the U.S. South • Representations of the U.S. • Depictions of the “hillbilly”/mountain culture • The myth of the American West and its representation in television culture • Representations of women (workplace/motherhood/class related) • American masculinities • Generational difference in American gender stereotypes • Foreign interpretations of the American depiction of crime/justice and class in Justified
If interested please submit a 250 word abstract of your proposal, including a working title, and a short C.V. by SEPTEMBER 30.
2011 to both:
Michael Brian Faucette firstname.lastname@example.org and
