        Subject: Preternature CFP: Anomalous Ethnographies: Wild Wonders and ReticentRaces

Dear Humanists, 

Please find CFP attached for Preternature. Although the journal is a print journal, we very much welcome approaches and methods which come from and intersect with Digital Humanities research as well. 	


Preternature: Critical and Historical Studies on the Preternatural invites articles for a special issue called Anomalous Ethnographies: Wild Wonders and Reticent Races, scheduled for publication in fall 2012. We are seeking academic articles from any discipline and period. Topics might include (but are not limited to) Abatwa, Bloody Mary, Boogieman, djinn, elves, elementals, fairies, fauns, goblins, gremlins, hauntings, Homo Floresiensis, incubi/succubi, mermaids, mummies, Plinian races, reptilians, Sasquatch, selkie, the undead, werewolves, wild men and wild women, Yaksa, and all other alternate forms of humanity, as represented in anthropologies, fiction, folk-lore, medias, mythologies, sermons, travel literatures, and urban legends. Contributions should highlight their construction, cultural role, or historical significance in popular narrative or academic discourse.

For more on the journal, please consult <www.preternature.org>.

Abstracts of 500 words are due on April 1, 2011. Final contributions should be roughly 8,000 - 12,000 words (with the possibility of longer submissions in exceptional cases), including all documentation and critical apparatus. If accepted for publication, manuscripts will be required to adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition (style 1, employing footnotes).

Preternature also welcomes original editions or translations of texts related to the topic that have not otherwise been made available in recent editions or in English.
