Reminder - CFP: Supernatural in the Nineteenth Century
Special Issue of Supernatural Studies Journal

The Supernatural Studies Journal is now accepting proposals (article and book reviews) for a themed issue on the supernatural in the nineteenth century (due Winter 2014), guest edited by Janine Hatter and Sara Williams.

Articles may examine any aspect of the representation of the supernatural within the context of worldwide literature, arts and material culture in the nineteenth century. The editorial board welcomes any approach, but request that authors minimize jargon associated with any single-discipline studies.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
folklore & mythology, monstrosity, hybridity, vampires, shapeshifters, goblins, fairies and fairy tales, ghosts and hauntings, demons and angels, possession and/or mind control, death and dying, burial rites, occult, mysticism, spiritualism and séances, spirit photography, religion, superstition, voodoo, culture, philosophy, desire, politics, gender, race, sexuality and class.

For articles: please send a 300-500 word abstract (or complete article, if available) and C.V. by November 30, 2013. All submissions will be acknowledged. Notification of acceptance will be e-mailed by December 15, 2013. If your abstract is accepted, the full article (3,000 - 6,000 words, including references using MLA style) will be March 31, 2014.

Additionally, the editorial board is seeking reviews of books that engage with elements of the nineteenth century supernatural (800-1,000 words in length).

For reviews: please send a C.V. and description of the book you would like to review, or alternatively, see the journal’s website for available books.

Further information, including Submission Guidelines, are available at the journal site: supernaturalstudies.org.
