[Ongoing] Critical Conversions in Horror Studies
« on: March 14, 2019, 09:46:47 PM »
Lehigh University Press is introducing a new series, Critical Conversations in Horror Studies, edited by Dawn Keetley, Professor of English at Lehigh University. We are seeking manuscripts in all areas of horror studies, broadly defined.

Publishing cutting-edge research that is accessible to both general and academic audiences, the series takes on important critical conversations about horror. The series offers a broad scope of scholarly inquiry. Not only do its books examine a range of media including film, television, and literature, but its publications also consider a variety of historic eras extending into the contemporary moment and reaching as far back as the origins of horror itself.

Manuscripts should be focused around a specific topic, the importance of which should be made very clear and should range from 50K - 90K words.

Samples topics might include:

Disability in the horror film
Elevated horror
The renaissance in horror television
National Horror traditions
Women directors of horror
Queer Horror
The social thriller
Horror fandom
Individual horror directors
Subgenres of horror
Horror by the decade

Please send a proposal, a vita, and a sample chapter to Dawn Keetley at and the director of Lehigh University Press, Kate Crassons, at Felel free to email Dawn with any questions.
