Call for Abstracts

Boardwalk Empire and Philosophy

Richard Greene & Rachel Robison-Greene, Editors

Abstracts are sought for a collection of philosophical essays related
to the HBO television series Boardwalk Empire. This volume will be
published by Open Court Publishing (the publisher of The Simpsons and
Philosophy, The Matrix and Philosophy, The Golden Compass and
Philosophy and The Undead and Philosophy, etc.) as part of their
successful Popular Culture and Philosophy series. We are seeking
abstracts, but anyone who has already written an unpublished paper on
this topic may submit it in its entirety. Potential contributors may
want to examine other volumes in the Open Court series.

Contributors are welcome to submit abstracts on any topic of
philosophical interest that pertains to Boardwalk Empire (including
the historical events on which the television program is based).  The
editors are especially interested in receiving submissions that engage
philosophical issues/topics/concepts in Boardwalk Empire in creative
and non-standard ways.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone writing within a
philosophic discipline who might be interested in contributing.

Contributor Guidelines:
1. Abstract of paper (100–750 words)
2. Resume/CV for each author/coauthor of the paper
3. Initial submission may be by mail or email (we prefer e-mail with
MS Word attachment)
4. Submission deadline: June 1, 2012
