Call For Papers

We are pleased to announce a Call for Panelists at the Eighth Annual Fandom and Neomedia Studies (FANS) Conference in Irving, TX, 3-5 June 2022, at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas.

Fandom for us includes all aspects of being a fan, ranging from being a passive audience member to producing one’s own parafictive or interfictive creations. Neomedia includes both new media as it is customarily defined as well as new ways of using and conceptualizing traditional media.

Ours is an interdisciplinary group, including historians, psychologists, scientists, writers, independent scholars, and industry professionals. We welcome contributions from all disciplines and from all levels of academic and professional achievement as we value the intersection of fandom and academia. Our conference is thus unique in its blend of traditional and modern elements. Submissions are welcome from professors, students, and independent researchers. Topics may come from anime, manga, science fiction, television series, movies, radio, performing arts, or any other popular culture phenomenon and their respective fandom groups.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

Women and minorities in media
Esports and team dynamics
Stage performance and puppet shows
Twitter literature
Science in cinema
Webcomics
Fanfic communities
Politics in video games
Historical fiction
Race in popular culture
Multilingual media and code switching
Pop culture parenting
Religious media
Media technologies
Costuming and cosplay
Social media in war zones
Ecocinema and ecocriticism
Economics of fandom

Panel descriptions of no more than 500 words must be submitted by 1 April 2022. Please also include a list of panelists and their CVs. Panelists accepted for the conference will be notified by 15 April 2022. If you wish to submit a paper version of your panel presentation for inclusion in the journal, The Phoenix Papers, please let us know.

The FANS Conference is hosted and sponsored by A-Kon, the longest continually-running anime and manga convention in North America. Conference panelist registration entitles you to the full enjoyment of A-Kon and its activities, including a chance to study anime, manga, and gaming fans in their native environment.

Registration information will be posted in January 2022.

Please use our Contact Us page should you have any questions. All submissions should be sent by email.
