Call For Papers

Washington and Politics on Contemporary US Television (Edited Collection)
We are currently inviting submissions for 2-3 chapters for an edited collection on Washington and Politics on Contemporary US Television.
Television has been accommodating a bigger number of political narratives in the last years. From the dramatic The West Wing, Scandal, Madame Secretary, Homeland, House of Cards to the short-lived yet impressive Boss, and Commander in Chief and the mini-series Political Animals, and the comedic Veep and The Brink, millennial TV is fraught with political plot lines that are edgier and more provocative than their filmic counterparts.

This collection aims to provide the first comprehensive study of these televised political narratives from an interdisciplinary perspective. We are therefore seeking for 2-3 more chapters focusing primarily on the following shows: The West Wing, Madame Secretary, Homeland, Veep, and The Brink.

Contributor guidelines:
1. Abstract (not to exceed 400 words) including theoretical premise, methodology and preliminary bibliography or full papers.
2. Brief CV (max. 150 words) including affiliation and recent publications for each author(s).
3. Submission deadline for abstracts: August 25, 2015.
4. Submission deadline for full essays: February 5, 2015
5. Materials and/or questions should be submitted by e-mail to betty.kaklamanidou@gmail.com
