Paranormal Cultures: Submissions Sought

Paranormal Cultures

Edited by Olu Jenzen and Sally R. Munt

Following on from the successful Paranormal Cultures Conference at the University of Sussex (June 2010), the conference organisers and editors Jenzen and Munt are inviting contributions to a collection of essays to be submitted to Ashgate Publishing.
We are particularly interested in essays that emphasise social or sociological aspects of the paranormal, in contemporary contexts. However, textual and historical subjects are also welcome. We have a broad definition of 'paranormal' - if you are wondering if your idea fits please ask!
If you would like to submit a proposal, please send us a 1 page outline by September 30th 2010. Chapters will be due by January 2011, for a final publication in 2012.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Olu Jenzen is an early career researcher who has published on the uncanny, sexuality, and Jeanette Winterson. Sally R. Munt was Principal Investigator on the AHRC/ESRC Queer Spiritual Spaces Project and Director of Sussex Centre for Cultural Studies.
