Twin Peaks and Philosophy, Call for Abstracts

Posted on | June 8, 2017

Twin Peaks and Philosophy

Richard Greene & Rachel Robison-Greene, Editors

Abstracts are sought for a collection of philosophical essays related to the television series Twin Peaks (including the prequel cinematic release Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me). 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 We are seeking abstracts, but anyone who has already written an unpublished paper on this topic may submit it in its entirety.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 Twin Peaks. The editors are especially interested in receiving submissions that engage philosophical issues/topics/concepts in Twin Peaks 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.

Contributor Guidelines:

1. Abstract of paper (100–750 words)

2. Resume/CV for each author/coauthor of the paper

3. Initial submission may be made by mail or email (we prefer e-mail with MS Word attachment)

4. Deadlines: Abstracts due August 1, 2017.
First drafts due October 1, 2017
Final drafts due December 1, 2017

(we are looking to complete the entire ms by December 30, 2017, so early submissions are encouraged and welcomed!)
