Call for Papers, Text: Race and the Vampire Narrative
Call for Papers Date:
Race in the Vampire Narrative, under contract with Sense Publishers as part of their Race & Ethnicity Series, seeks classroom ready original essays from scholars with PhDs, which explicitly connect the vampire narrative to studies in race and ethnicity. The two core areas of exploration are the use of vampires as metaphors for race/ethnic construction and/or marginalization; and the place (or lack of it) of non-white vampires in popular culture.
We particularly welcome proposals for original works that explore non-traditional fictions such as works from African American authors, the Asian vampire narrative, and the image of the black/Latino vampire in American film and television.
Please submit proposals (350-500 words) by Friday August 9th 2013, along with a brief biography (150-200 words), to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your abstract is selected for inclusion in the volume, first drafts (5,000 to 7,000 words) will be due Friday January 31st 2014 with the final edits due by Friday June 27th 2014.
