>It’s Alive!!! It’s Alive!!! It’s ALIVE!!!
>A new online journal is hatched! Horror Theory
>has been created in order to satisfy the craving for serious studies of the
>horror genre. The project came into being after noticing the lack of
>attention given to the genre by established academic journals. It is intended
>first and foremost as a collective of ideas among academics, intellectuals,
>scholars, students, and fans of horror films. Its purpose is to provide them
>a platform to share their research papers, essays, and ideas about the genre,
>ultimately making it a growing resource.
>Horror Theory will publish all the articles and essays it deems of academic
>interest. Furthermore, non-academic and undergraduate writings will also be
>considered. Another of the journal’s objectives is to facilitate access to
>key works, and you can therefore look foreword for the reproduction of
>articles by renowned authors in the future.
>But for now, consider this a call out for submissions. We welcome criticism
>and theory pertaining to horror films and/or horror culture. Historic
>surveys, social and psychological analyses, and author studies will most
>certainly be acknowledged. Film reviews will be considered on the basis of
>merit and academic relevancy; works of fiction will be approached in the same
>manner. Submissions can be in either English or French, and must follow MLA
>standards for formatting and layout. To submit your work to the committee,
>please attach your document as a Word document in Rich Text Format (.rtf) and
>send it to:
><mailto:[log in to unmask]>[log in to unmask]
>Horror Theory represents a brand new opportunity to publish your work and to
>establish a new journal dedicated to this overlooked genre. Help us to create
>the ultimate horror-related journal!
