        /Reception: texts, readers, audiences, history/

            /The Journal of the Reception Study Society/

From 2008-2012, our journal appeared online, and from 2013 it is
published by Penn State University Press
<>. For the
editions of the previous years, please scroll down. Print editions are
mailed to all members of RSS.

          Special Issue Call for Papers:

We are pleased to announce that the next special-topic issue of
Reception is planned for the 2018 volume year. Focusing on “Crossing
the Boundaries of Reception,” the issue will be guest edited by Janet
L. Badia and Steven A. Carr from Indiana University-Purdue University
Fort Wayne. Readers interested in submitting essays for consideration
for this issue should send completed articles directly to Janet L.
Badia <mailto:(badiaj /at/> and Steven A. Carr
<mailto:(carr /at/>. Authors are encouraged to construe
“boundaries” as broadly as possible within a reception-study context,
including adaptation from one medium to another, textual and genre
boundaries in relation to audiencing, serialization and readership,
unauthorized fan fiction, responses to narratives about gender and
racial crossings, boundary crossing at sites of reception—including
globalized reworking of texts, cross-cultural flows, cross-cultural
comparisons of reception of a particular text, fandom among culturally
hybridized and/or diasporic audiences, reception among refugee
populations—as well as boundary synergies for texts across multiple
media and platforms, including social media platforms for delivering
audiences to texts or appropriating audience ideas to generate new
narratives. The deadline for submissions for the issue is April 15,
2017, and they should include an abstract of no more than 150 words.
The essays should follow the Chicago Manual of Style, and should not
exceed 7,000 words.

/Reception: Texts, Readers, Audiences, History/ seeks to promote
dialog and discussion among scholars engaged in theoretical and
practical analyses in several related fields: reader-response
criticism and pedagogy, reception study, history of reading and the
book, audience and communication studies, institutional studies and
histories, as well as interpretive strategies related to feminism,
race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and postcolonial studies,
focusing mainly but not exclusively on the literature, culture, and
media of England and the United States.

Style and should not exceed 7,000 words. Submissions should be

evaluated anonymously by at least two outside specialists in the
field, and contributors can expect a decision in a timely fashion.
