Shelf Love Guest Open Call: Researching Romantic Stories Across GenresJan 30, 2022
Open call for guests with expertise in romantic narratives in pop culture.
AREAS OF INTEREST:
- Genres and media that explore romantic love: professional wrestling, anime, romance novels, advertising, television, film, comic books, games, fairy tales, and more
- Examinations of romantic love stories across cultures (especially outside the US)
- How romantic love stories have changed over time
- Cross-disciplinary approaches
Theory + Text: Guest will share a bite-sized explanation of their research. Ideally, we can discuss a specific textual example that I have also consumed prior to our conversation, and we can discuss how the theory is put into practice.
Typical recording is 60-75 minutes long; 50-60-minute final edited episode.
This call is open to scholars and nerds of all kinds - no formal qualifications required. But, please note this is not a call for authors of fiction to discuss their own work.
I encourage you to listen to a few episodes of Shelf Love if you haven't already. Here are a few that are most similar to what this call is looking for:
- Rare book dealer Rebecca Romney on her Romance Collection
- Julie Moody Freeman on Teaching Black Romance in the Classroom with Cultural Studies Framework
- Eric Selinger on Major Waves of Romance Scholarship
- Diana Filar on White American Immigrants, Assimilation, Romance Adaptations
Shelf Love podcast interviews are conducted remotely via Skype.
