CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST – Unravelling the Hero’s Journey: an edited book by Alison Norrington (Story Central) & Dr Roy Hanney (Solent University)

Unravelling the Hero’s Journey: New narrative modalities/paradigms for story, semantics & the psychology of experience

At a time when the world is rethinking what it means by diversity and inclusion, how can we open up the concept of story to global voices, alternative visions, and new experiential approaches with a recognition that audiences collectively engage with story in culturally situated contexts?

We plan to produce an edited collection which we hope to have published by Routledge as part of their Routledge Advances in Transmedia Studies book series, edited by Matthew Freeman (Bath Spa University). Successful authors will be invited to contribute to a planned symposium in the summer of 2022, and subsequently submit full chapters of 7,000 words, pending contract.

Please send contact us with an expression of interest to [email protected] by 31st August 2021 at the very latest.

Please share with your network if you feel this is of interest to yourself or to other scholars.
