SC3 : Slayage Conference on the Whedonverses on June 2008

mercredi 17 octobre 2007, par Webmaster

Rhonda Wilcox and David Lavery, coeditors of Fighting the Forces : What’s at Stake in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Slayage : The Online International Journal of Buffy Studies (www.slayageonline.tv), solicit your proposal for the third Slayage Conference : The Slayage Conference on the Whedonverses (SC3), sponsored by Henderson State University. This conference dedicated to the imaginative universe(s) of Joss Whedon—the Jossverse or Whedonverse(s)—will be held on the campus of Henderson State in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, June 5-8, 2008. Dr. Kevin Durand, Associate Professor of Philosophy at HSU, will be the local arrangements chair.

We welcome a proposal of 200-300 words (or an abstract of a completed paper) on any aspect of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Serenity, his comics (e.g. Fray, Astonishing X-Men, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight), or any element of the work of Whedon and his collaborators. We invite presentations from the perspective of any discipline : literature, history, communications, film and television studies, women’s studies, philosophy, religion, linguistics, music, cultural studies, and others. Discussions of the text, the social context, the audience, the producers, the production, and more are all appropriate. For a lengthy but not exhaustive list of possible topics, see http://slayageonline.com/S3/topics.doc. All proposals/abstracts should demonstrate familiarity with already-published scholarship in the field, which includes over a score of books and, of course, six years of Slayage.
