A paywalled Penn State University Press academic journal, Preternature, is seeing papers for a special issue on: “Monstrophy: The Academic Study of Monsters”…

“Preternature is an interdisciplinary forum for the study of the preternatural as seen in magics, witchcraft, spiritualism, occultism, prophecy, monstrophy, demonology, and folklore. The journal embraces a broad and dynamic definition of the preternatural. […] Contributions are welcome from any discipline, time period, or geographic provenance, so long as the discussion highlights the cultural, literary, religious, or historical significance of the topic. Final Papers are due 15th April 2012.”
