[cfp] The Comic Book Superheroes

Posted 10 Dec, 2013

Synæsthesia: Communication Across Cultures is an open-access interdisciplinary journal, rigorously peer-reviewed and oriented toward advancing new perspectives and understandings of how thought, engagement, and the communication of meanings hinge upon human perception. The journal encourages new dialogues in communication theory and research by publishing original scholarship that explores issues from the interpersonal to mass-marketed, regional to global, academic to corporate, among genders and across time. The journal welcomes innovative theoretical essays and research articles from scholars around the world and aims to advance the progressive exchange of ideas.

Synæsthesia invites submissions for a special upcoming themed edition of the journal (Vol. 2, No. 3) specifically focused on 'The Comic Book Superheroes.'

Synæsthesia managing editors Dr. Christopher Melley and Dr. Daniel Broudy are pleased to announce that this special topic edition of the journal will be co-edited by Dr. Jeffery Klæhn.

Possible themes/topics that may be explored include superheroes within the broader context of history, pop culture, theory, masculinity and femininity, race and ethnicity, inequality (social, political, economic), power, identity, the medium and/or other genres, the broader comic book industry, other media, methods of production, authorship, creator's rights, the changing status of comic book writers and/or artists, changing markets and channels of distribution, readership and fandom.

All articles considered for publication will undergo a peer-review process.

Scholarly work accepted for publication with the online journal will receive subsequent consideration for publication within future collected volumes.

Submissions should be rigorous in scholarship yet accessible in style for audiences across a wide spectrum of disciplines.

Submissions lodged by e-mail should include a title, abstract, author's name, and institutional affiliation. Including in the subject line of your e-mail submission the proposed title of your essay/paper will help us parse spam from legitimate inquiries. If including images within the manuscript, please adhere to fair use policy. Manuscripts attached to e-mail submissions should be saved in the MSWord .doc format.
