Disney Studies [Special Topic]
Current Chair: Priscilla Hobbs, Southern New Hampshire University, p.hobbs-penn@snhu.edu

This area invites submissions from scholars and independent researchers for topics related to Disney. The intent behind this area is to foster dialogue about an entertainment corporation that has seeped and inspired many facets of popular culture. Submission topics are welcome for any Disney-related topic, including but not limited to:

Theme Parks and hyperreality
Animation (films, process)
Princesses, Pirates, and everything in between
Walt Disney
Imagineering and urban planning
Disney+, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, The Wonderful World of Disney
DisneyNature, the True Life Adventures, and Ecology
Diversity and Disney Hegemony
NOTE: Proposals for acquired properties (e.g. Star Wars, The Muppets) are welcome, but need to connect to Disney.
