“THE WORLDS OF WHEDON”
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Joss Whedon’s oeuvre includes writing, directing, and producing a number of hit television series, such as Buffy, the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel, as well as cult favorite Firefly and its sequel motion picture Serenity, along with the controversial series Dollhouse. He is also a co-producer of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recent cinematic forays include The Cabin in the Woods, William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing along with the blockbusters, Marvel’s the Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Whedon’s works have spawned a legion of fans, who create various types of homages to him, including fiction, films, and other forms of creative works, such as jewelry, clothing, etc. In addition, academic scholarship about Whedon and his work has led to the establishment of the Whedon Studies Association along with a peer-reviewed journal, a number of conferences, and myriad books. Given this dedicated base of fans and scholars, McFarland is pleased to announce a new peer-reviewed series that will be edited by Sherry Ginn, author of Power and Control in the Television Worlds of Joss Whedon. Both monographs and edited collections are welcome.
