CFP: Entertainment – Journal of Media and Movie Studies, Vol. 2: Conspiracy Theories in Film, Literature and Social Media

November 30, 2016

15 years after 9/11 there are many conspiracy theories related to the events that have been discussed in films, literature and social media. However, this is not the only conspiracy theory of such long endurance. Many more, like the Jewish world conspiracy, the survival of Nazi Germany on the dark side of the moon, Area 51, the assassination of John F. Kennedy and many more have led to a large production of films, literature and social media (blogs or vlogs). For the second volume of Entertainment we are interested in papers that analyze these conspiracy theories and in how far they are created, stimulated or re-defined by these media.

Articles should range between 5000 and 8000 words and use footnotes (following the latest Chicago Manual of Style).
