Coreopsis Journal of Myth and Theatre
Call for Papers: Spring 2023: Myths that Kill: Lies, Damn Lies, and Urban Myth

Deadlines: Queries and abstracts: August 2022
Full papers: October 15, 2022
Publication date: February 28, 2023

Urban myth, internet rumors, social media memes, deliberate falsification of information in the media: these all have real world impact. These past several years we have witnessed how a rumor or a myth that contains false information can spread and do serious harm to communities and individuals; how some are deliberately spread by political parties and how others seem to come from nowhere and take on a life of their own. From the insurrection of 1/6/21 to Youtube pseudoscience concerning AIDS, COVID-19, Ebola, and cancer, to religious fakery, theocratic power mongering, and campaigns of oppression and genocide against those who are perceived as different and “the other”. This issue will be devoted to how these myths spread and how they harm people, places, other living creatures, communities, and democracy itself and how communities debunk and counter these myths.

Topics to consider:

How does a community, a society or a country counter these fakeries in popular media, oral folklore, and destructive urban myths? Or does it?
Debunking and dismantling disinformation.
The history and current use of “the blood lie” and other myths concerning minority communities.
Social media and internet memes
Protests and counterprotests: how rumors become viral
Deliberate propaganda and how it is used
"Jailhouse Myth" corruptions of Norse Mythology and racist ideologies.
Urban myth in film, live performance and literature
Medical mythologies in pandemics, cancer treatment, and major illness
RE: the "wellness community" and other movements
