Call for Abstracts – Exploring Teen Wolf – April 1, 2016

Looking for papers for an essay collection on the MTV television show Teen Wolf, with an emphasis on the most recent seasons. This volume aims to discuss Teen Wolf in the context of popular and literary culture, historical analysis, and academic theory, though other approaches are also welcome.

– Monstrosity and/or Hybridity
– Fandom
– Adolescence
– Personal Transformation
– Genre Transformation and/or Subversion
– Gender
– Race
– Heroism and/or Villainy
– History and Memory
– Power

We are also interested in the intersections of Teen Wolf with:
– the werewolf in literary history
– current media and pop culture
– fairy tales and/or folk mythology
– horror tropes
– the werewolf in other television shows (True Blood, Doctor Who, Sanctuary, Grimm)

What to Send:
300 – 500 word abstracts (or complete articles, if available) and CVs should be submitted by April 1, 2016. If an abstract is accepted for the collection, a full draft of the essay (5000 – 8000 words) will be required by July 1, 2016.

Abstracts and final articles should be submitted to both ecampb10@gmu.edu and keoverland@gmail.com. Please include “Teen Wolf Submission” in your subject line.
