CfP: Tolkien and Jackson Fan Studies


Proposals are sought for fan studies scholarship on any aspect of fan production, creation, or activities relating to J. R. R. Tolkien's Legendarium and/or Peter Jackson's live-action film adaptations of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

The editors hope to co-sponsor at least one dedicated paper session at the national Popular Culture Conference (San Diego, April, 2017), and then to develop those papers to submit to a special theme issue of Journal of Tolkien Research the same year. 
NOTE: There is no requirement that scholars must present at the Popular Culture conference in order to submit proposals to the journal, nor does participation at PCA mandate submitting to the journal issue. However, this option, we believe, will allow for multi-disciplinary dialogue among and between scholars in the preparatory stages of thinking about the special issue. JTR is an open-access, electronic, peer-reviewed journal: http://scholar.valpo.edu/journaloftolkienresearch/

Timeline:
Popular Culture Submissions: July 1-October 1, 2016

Deadline for submission to editors: June 1, 2017 (Proposal or First Drafts)
