      Subject: Harry Potter Fan Fiction (6/15/04; collection)



      Scholars from all disciplines are invited to submit abstracts for a
      proposed collection of essays about Harry Potter fan fiction. Essays
      on young writers, transnational fandom, and fan works from outside
      the English-speaking world are especially needed, but all submissions
      on fan works are very welcome. Please note that the topic of this
      volume is fan fiction; to be considered, all papers must at least
      touch on fan writings or art.

      Paper topics might include, but are by no means limited to:

      * Studies focused on writing by younger authors
      * Studies of the various on-line communities in which participants
      exchange works and ideas
      * Britishness and the Harry Potter fandom
      * Fan art comics, illustrations, or doujinshi
      * Studies of fan works and writings from outside the English-speaking

      This is a scholarly volume; because its audience will be
      interdisciplinary, and will also include general readers, however,
      all contributors should minimize their use of academic jargon.

      Please send abstracts of no less than 300 words, and a brief c.v., to
      glaubman@.... If you already have a completed paper in
      hand, I would be happy to read it. I would also appreciate a brief
      note about your background and interest in the topic. Inquiries
