    Calls for Papers this month come from:

    • Stardom and Celebrity in Contemporary India

      The forthcoming issue of Indian Journal of Comparative Literature & Translation Studies is opening submissions on "Stardom and Celebrity in Contemporary India". The informing assumption is that there is no single culture of celebrity and the issue will endeavor to highlight the co-existence of multiple domains of celebrity culture in India. IJCLTS invites original, unpublished and innovative work from across the disciplines and across the world. The extent of the essays should be between 3000-5000 words or shorter but rigorously analytic pieces (500-1500 words) whose scope is less extensive than that of an essay but which raises a pertinent point regarding celebrity culture. The pertinent master categories of India studies.

      Besides the articles, IJCLTS is looking for translations, interviews, and book reviews. Submit by 31st May 2014.

    • CFP: My Little Pony: A Transcultural Phenomenon

      "This one day conference seeks to place the 30 year long ‘My Little Pony’ series within critical, cultural and creative contexts, exploring the brand from a multi-disciplinary range of perspectives. 300 word abstracts are invited." The conference will be held at University of Brighton – Grand Parade on Saturday 28 June 2014. Please send abstracts and enquiries to Ewan Kirkland at e.kirkland [at] brighton.ac.uk.

      Deadline for abstracts: 28 May 2014

    • CFP: Queer Fan Cultures in Greater China

      Queer fandom nowadays has become a global phenomenon. The blooming of Chinese queer fandoms in the past two decades has also offered rich sites of queer representations of gender and sexuality. Yet, research explicating Chinese queer fandoms is still far from adequate. The editors seek chapter contributions that elaborate the cultural specificities, significances, transformativity, hybridity, historicity, and futurity epitomized by Chinese queer fan cultures. We are especially keen to receive manuscripts that consider the queer dimensions of gender, sexuality, desire, and fantasy from a wide range of Chinese temporal and geographical settings. We also very welcome submissions that employ interdisciplinary and/or comparative approaches.

      To submit chapter proposal submissions for consideration, please send a 1000- to 1500-word abstract with working bibliography and a CV by May 30th, 2014 to queerfandom2014 [at] yahoo.com.

    • CFP: The Mystery of Edwin Drood: Solutions and Resolutions

      Charles Dickens’s last novel, unfinished as it is, has become a call to arms to a legion of fans, academics and authors to solve the mystery and complete the uncompleted. The Victorian Popular Fiction Association will publish The Drood Inquiry, which will investigate and celebrate the many weird and wonderful responses to Dickens’s story, exploring the ways in which these solutions reflect upon the authors’ attitudes to Dickens and his legacy, and how Dickens’s story and characters exist both within the boundaries of the original text and without in the numerous spin-offs that have arisen.

      Proposals are welcome for 20 minute papers to be presented at a one day conference on the themes of the book or the insights its subsequent treatment can provide on Dickens’s reputation, as well as any discussion of theories on how the story ends. Proposals (up to 500 words) and a brief biographical note should be sent by 31 May 2014.

    • CFP: Golden Age or Gilded Age? Fan Cultures, Past, Present, and Future

      Fan culture has been intimately linked with mass media since the beginning of the movies in the late 1800s and early 1900s. As various technologies have pushed media evolution along – sound, color, television, and internet – fan culture has kept pace and fueled not only consumption but also developed communities. First in fan magazines, then at conventions, fan culture has spread and inspired fans to celebrate the media they loved. This love frequently leads to the development of derivative works such as fan fiction and fan editing—the expansion of existing media elements into whole new worlds.

      Is this the Golden Age of Fan Culture, as brought about by the internet’s ability to transmit media and foster communities, or is this a Gilded Age, where fan culture has gone postmodern, sometimes eclipsing the objects and subjects of fan desire? This area welcomes proposals on a diverse range of topics pertaining to fan culture, both present and historic, with a particular emphasis on visual media such as film and television.

      2014 Film & History Conference is looking for submissions of 200-word proposals by 1 June 2014.

    The OTW encourages anyone to submit an event that's not already listed, and to check out the calendar throughout the year!

  • Yuletide chat reminder

    Message type:

    Banner by caitie with 'otw chat' at its center and emoticons and other symbols in word bubbles surrounding it.

    Just a reminder that Open Doors will be holding two public chats on Campfire (the online chat platform the OTW uses) for Yuletide participants. The first will be on April 26, 4pm UTC (what time is that in my timezone?)

    Anyone who has questions about the process is welcome to join the Open Doors team at those chats, and we’ll do our best to answer you. We would also like to direct Yuletide participants to our announcement post as it has been updated with information about the import of comments. Please read the section beginning with Edited to say as we will NOT be able to add backdated comments to works after the import in May.

    For those Yuletide participants who didn't want to wait for us to import your fic to AO3 for you, Open Doors would like to encourage you to add your works to the Yuletide subcollections they belong to. It's not required, but it'd be great to keep things together! And it would make our upcoming import of the old Yuletide archive run that much more smoothly. To add multiple fics to a collection at once, here's how:

    1. While logged into your account, hover over your pseud and select “My Works”.
    2. From that page, click “Edit Works” (to mass edit works).
      Select all the story titles that you want to transfer into a given collection. Click “Edit”.
    3. In the second section of this page is the option to “Add To Collections”. Type in "Yuletide" followed by the year (e.g., "Yuletide 2008") or "New Year's Resolution" followed by the year (e.g. "New Year's Resolution 2011") and it should be appear in the autofill. Note: Don’t change anything else, or it will overwrite what was originally on the story.)
    4. Click “Update All Works” at the bottom.

    For a visual view of the above steps we have a few slides to help.

    If you have questions, or want to know how Open Doors can help your archive, shoot us an email through our contact form.

    Krok po kroku – Organizacja na rzecz Twórczości Przeobrażonej – Promocja Członkostwa – 3-9 Kwietnia

    W zeszłym tygodniu Organizacja na rzecz Twórczości Przeobrażonej świętowała ważne kamienie milowe. Fanlore przekroczyła liczbę 500,000 edycji, Archive of Our Own (Nasze Własne Archiwum) posiada obecnie ponad 1 milion prac fanowskich, a nasza Journal Committee (Komisja ds. Publikacji) wydała The Fan Fiction Studies Reader. By uczcić te osiągniecia, w marcu zorganizowaliśmy serię dyskusji na temat "Przyszłości Twórczości Fanowskiej", w których wzięli udział przedstawiciele środowisk akademickich, fanowskich i prawniczych, jak również goście reprezentujący przemysł rozrywkowy.

    Teraz czas skupić się na tym, co jeszcze przed nami! Każdy kamień milowy, który osiągneliśmy, był skutkiem hojności oraz wysiłku członków i wolontariuszy OTW. Składając darowiznę możesz pomóc nam stworzyć drogę do przyszłości OTW i osiągnąć kolejne kamienie milowe.

    Podczas naszej promocji członkostwa, która trwa od dziś do 9 kwietnia, zapraszamy cię do stania się członkiem OTW poprzez złożenie darowizny w kwocie równej lub przekraczającej 10USD. Twój wkład pomoże nam utrzymać Archive of Our Own (Nasze Własne Archiwum), Open Doors (Drzwi Otwarte), Transformative Works and Cultures (Twórczość i Kulturę Przeobrażoną), Fanlore, Fanhackers i pracę naszej Pomocy Prawnej. Jeśli złożysz darowiznę w kwocie wynoszącej lub przekraczającej 50USD, możesz otrzymać podziękowanie w formie prezentu, dzięki któremy będziesz mogła(ógł) pochwalić się udzielonym nam wsparciem.

    Darowizny na rzecz OTW są odliczane od podatku dochodowego w Stanach Zjednoczonych. Jeśli masz jakieś pytania na temat składania darowizn, odwiedź membership FAQ (Najczęściej Zadawane Pytania na temat członkostwa) (umiejscowione na dole strony, na której składa się darowizny) lub skontaktuj się z Komisją ds. Rozwoju i Członkostwa.

    Twoja darowizna jest krokiem ku przyszłości OTW. Pomóż nam stworzyć drogę do dalszej ochrony i wspierania twórczości i historii fanowskiej, osiągnięcia wielu sukcesów prawnych i zachęcenia do tworzenia większej liczby wysokiej jakości prac naukowych na temat fanów. Wpłać darowiznę już dziś!

    Passo Dopo Passo – Organization for Transformative Works – Chiamata alle Iscrizioni – dal 3 al 9 Aprile

    Nelle scorse settimane, Organization for Transformative Works ha festeggiato il raggiungimento di alcuni importanti risultati. Fanlore ha superato i 500.000 inserimenti, Archive of Our Own ha raggiunto il milione di fanwork e gli editori del nostro Journal hanno creato la rivista The Fan Fiction Studies Reader. Nel mese di marzo, abbiamo inoltre ospitato una serie di dibattiti sul “Futuro dei Fanwork” a cui hanno partecipato ospiti dal mondo accademico e dello spettacolo, fan e giuristi.

    Ora è il momento di pensare alla strada ancora da fare!

    Ogni passo avanti è stato il risultato diretto della generosità e dell’impegno di membri e volontari dell’organizzazione. Con una donazione, puoi contribuire a dar forma al futuro di OTW e aiutarci a raggiungere ulteriori obiettivi.

    Con questa chiamata alle iscrizioni, che durerà da oggi fino al 9 aprile, ti invitiamo a diventare un membro di OTW facendo una donazione di almeno 10 US$. Il tuo contributo ci aiuterà a sostenere le spese per Archive of Our Own, Open Doors (Porte Aperte), Transformative Works and Cultures (Culture e Fanwork Trasformativi), Fanlore, Fanhackers nonché il nostro lavoro di patrocinio legale. Con una donazione di almeno 50 US$, puoi scegliere di ricevere un omaggio per mostrare con orgoglio il tuo supporto.

    Le donazioni a OTW sono deducibili dalle tasse negli Stati Uniti. Per maggiori informazioni sulle donazioni, visita le FAQ sulle iscrizioni (in fondo alla pagina delle donazioni) oppure contatta il comitato Sviluppo e Iscrizioni.

    La tua donazione sarà un passo avanti per il futuro di OTW. Aiutaci a percorrere la strada per preservare e ospitare fanwork e la storia dei fan, per raggiungere vittorie legali e per incoraggiare studi di alto livello sulle culture dei fan. Dona subito!
