That’s What People Do: Subversive Identities in Neo-Victorian Media
I’m looking for essays of between 3000-5000 words on the topic of subversive identities in Neo-Victorian media, for a collection I plan on putting together next year!
A few suggested films/TV shows you might look at are:
-Ripper Street -Sherlock Holmes (Guy Ritchie’s; also Sherlock, Elementary etc.) -Whitechapel -Sarah Waters adaptations (Fingersmith, Tipping the Velvet etc.) -The Crimson Petal and the White -Penny Dreadful -The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
And of course, you’re welcome to look at other forms of media such as video games, where I suggest you might want to write about Fallen London, or Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate.
A few suggested topics for essay subjects:
-LGBT+ identities, and how they are treated in regards to a modern audience -Female voices and feminism -Race and ethnicity, and the stereotyping and demonising of non-white identities -Character analyses, and the audience’s perceptions of character(s)
But this list is by no means complete, so please do feel free to pick whatever you want, as long as it falls under the category of being neo-Victorian!
I plan to shop this around to publishers upon completion of the manuscript, but if I cannot find any interested in the topic, then I’ll be self-publishing with Amazon.
There’s no prerequisite for submission, just as long as you want to get involved, and have an idea that you’re excited about! I’m especially interested to hear from people from marginalised backgrounds, including (but not limited to): non-white people, people identifying as LGBT+, and women and non-binary folk.
If interested, please submit a 250 word abstract to email@example.com, no later than the 31st of December 2016. Final essays will be due around May/June 2017, more details to come later.
