Special issue of Horror Studies on Hispanic Horror
Call for papers
Papers are sought for a special issue of Horror Studies devoted to Hispanic horror. The notion of Hispanic used here is generally a broad one that focuses in the first instance on horror texts and production in the Spanish language and emanating from Spain, Latin America or other Spanish-speaking communities. However, the penetration into other cultures of texts, materials, ideas and personnel from Spanish-speaking cultures and communities means that even such a broad definition as this can be seen as too limiting. Papers are therefore also welcome that consider texts and production internationally and transnationally (including primary texts that are in some other language than Spanish), with the caveat that such papers should demonstrate the nexus with Spanish-language culture in terms of ideas, influences, texts and/or people.
Papers of 7-900 words (including references, notes and abstract) should be submitted to the editor at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by 30 April 2018. Publication of successful submissions is planned for 2019. As Horror Studies is an English-language journal, all submissions should be in English. Translation of papers from other languages is the responsibility of the author(s). All submissions should follow the publisher's style guide: http://horrorstudiesjournal.com/images/PDFs/Intellect-Journals-style-guide.pdf. Please direct any queries to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
