JRPC Star Wars Special Issue #CFP 

The Journal of Religion and Popular Culture issued this call for papers:

Star Wars

With an extensive and still growing body of work, including two cinematographic trilogies, a third trilogy in process, several animated  television series, and numerous books and novels, Star Wars is probably one of the richest universes in science fiction, and generates a strong and constant interest from a vivid fan community. Religions play a major role in this setting, particularly with the preponderant importance of the Force in the Star Wars universe. However, given the size of the Star Wars galaxy and the number of sentient species that inhabit it, religion in Star Wars cannot be reduced to the Force.

The Journal of Religion and Popular Culture invites submissions exploring the religious dimensions of the Star Wars universe, including the religious and mystic symbols that have been extensively used in developing the varied elements of the Star Wars franchise. Papers exploring the religious dimensions and implications of the animated series’, the third trilogy, the Star Wars legends material, fans, conventions, theme parks, and other Star Wars material are particularly welcome.

This special issue will provide an up-to-date reflection on the topic of religion and Star wars, and will investigate some of the most recent avatars of the Star Wars saga through the lens of religion.

Interested authors, and book reviewers should contact guest editor, Matthieu Guitton atmatthieu.guitton@fmed.ulaval.ca

Submission Deadline: 31 March 2017
