Call for Papers | Professional Wrestling: Politics and Populism | New anthology edited by Heather Levi, Nell Haynes, Eero Laine & Sharon Mazer. Call ends March 15, 2018 (abstracts)
This book project began as a cross-disciplinary conversation – theatre, performance studies, anthropology – presented first in a panel at a 2017 conference. The editors wish now to expand the field to allow a wider range of perspectives and voices to weigh in on the question of how professional wrestling might be implicated in the current resurgence of populist politics.
We are seeking contributors to our project, an edited volume of essays examining various aspects of professional wrestling and its relationship to other themes (nationalism, gender, race, etc.). The scope is broad and open, and authors are welcome to write about any individual, period, or location.
