CFP: Culture-bound Syndromes in Popular Culture
Editors of the upcoming collection Culture-bound Syndromes in Popular Culture are calling for abstracts of chapters. Abstracts are due by April 15, 2022.
The edited collection aims to provide in-depth and analytical insight into the representations of cultural imagery and narratives of various culture-bound syndromes through the lens of global and national popular culture, covering movies, television, visual arts, fashion, festivals, popular music, and graphic novels.
The volume takes its readers on a journey across (popular) cultures and introduces them to an entirely new subfield of studies, at the conjunction of medical anthropology and popular culture, focusing on folk illnesses.
The editors invite established and emerging scholars specializing in all areas of media and cultural studies, anthropology, sociology, social/cultural geography, and other relevant research fields to propose a book chapter on an individual culture-bound syndrome and its representations in popular culture. Both single and multiple-authored works will be considered. All work should be original and previously unpublished.
They are also interested in hearing open proposals for possible chapters about other cultural syndromes.
