Call for Proposals (Participant Reflections for Essays on Memory in Popular Culture)

Are you a gamer?

Do you cosplay? Run a fan-art Tumblr page?

Want the world to know what you do?

Then your perspective is just what Essays on Memory in Popular Culture needs! This forthcoming collection is actively seeking brief (approximately 1,000 words) reflections of what it is like to participate in today’s popular culture media experience. We are especially looking for fannish and science fiction-specific activities like fan fiction and cosplay.

Even (and especially) if you don’t consider yourself a writer, we’d like to hear about your experience in the following areas:

  • Fan wikis and episode guides.
  • Online fan fiction and fan art.
  • MMORPGs.
  • Other online gaming.
  • Cosplay.
  • Fan podcasting.

If you are interested, please contact the editor, Heather Urbanski, at memoryinsf_book @ icloud.com by May 1, 2014.
