Call for Abstracts:
American Horror Story and Philosophy
Richard Greene & Rachel Robison-Greene, Editors
Abstracts are sought for a collection of philosophical essays related to the television series American Horror Story. This volume will be published by Open Court Publishing (the publisher of The Simpsons and Philosophy, The Matrix and Philosophy, Dexter and Philosophy, The Walking Dead and Philosophy, Boardwalk Empire and Philosophy, and The Princess Bride and Philosophy, etc.) as part of their successful Popular Culture and Philosophy series. We are seeking abstracts, but anyone who has already written an unpublished paper on this topic may submit it in its entirety. Potential contributors may want to examine other volumes in the Open Court series.
Contributors are welcome to submit abstracts on any topic of philosophical interest that pertains to American Horror Story. The editors are especially interested in receiving submissions that engage philosophical issues/topics/concepts in American Horror Story in creative and non-standard ways.
Please feel free to forward this to anyone writing within a philosophic discipline who might be interested in contributing.
