CFP: Podcasting Culture: Re-inventing Audio Storytelling

Calls for Submissions

The editors of GRAMMA: Journal of Theory and Criticism are seeking submissions for Issue number 29 on podcasting culture and audio storytelling. Proposals are due by April 14, 2022.

this issue is concerned with the intricacies of the new un/non/neo-literary form of the podcast and, more particularly, with its storytelling logic and potential, from narrative journalism podcasts and true crime series to fictional audio stories and scripted podcasts. Embracing the cultural relevance of the podcast industry and recognizing podcast narratives as an emerging and underexplored field of studies, they invite proposals related to the peculiarities of this narrative form.

Papers are open – but not limited – to the following topics:

  • Experimental podcast narratives
  • Reinventing genres in podcast narratives
  • Digital technology, innovation and podcast narratives
  • Podcast narratives and pop culture
  • Cross-overs with visual storytelling in podcast narratives
  • Podcast narratives and the oral storytelling tradition
  • Podcasts, radio drama and the audiobook industry
  • Questions of inclusivity in podcast narratives

Proposals up to 300 words and a short bio should be sent to the editors of the issue, Maria Ristani and Sotirios Bampatzimopoulos.
