The 2013 Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship competition is CLOSED and no longer accepting applications.

In 2013, the Ford Fellowship program will award approximately 60 predoctoral fellowships. The predoctoral fellowships provide three years of support  for individuals engaged in graduate study leading to a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or Doctor of Science (Sc.D.) degree.

Predoctoral fellowships will be awarded in a national competition administered by the National Research Council (NRC) on behalf of the Ford Foundation. The awards will be made to individuals who, in the judgment of the review panels, have demonstrated superior academic achievement, are committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level, show promise of future achievement as scholars and teachers, and are well prepared to use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students.

We are pleased to announce the inaugural call for papers for the Journal of Popular Television, to be published in 2013 by Intellect.

This peer-reviewed journal invites articles on all aspects of popular television, both fictional and non-fictional, from docudramas and sports to news and cultural programming. Published bi-annually, the journal is rooted in the belief that popular television continues to play a major cultural, political and social role, and thus seeks contributions that contextualise programmes, genres and phenomena. Analysis of national television cultures and style are welcomed, but the editors are particularly interested in interdisciplinary, empirical and comparative approaches to shows and developments across national boundaries. Possible topics of interest might include: studies of individual programmes, format trading, comparisons of different broadcast policies, quality television, reality television, television personalities and stars, documentaries, sport, children’s television, comedy, and interviews with creative/industry personnel.

This series aims to explore and decode the fascination we have with what constitutes an iconic or cultish phenomenon and how a particular person, TV show or film character/film infiltrates their way into the public consciousness.

The Doctor Who (Fan Phenomena) title will look at particular examples of Doctor Who fan culture and approach the subject in an accessible manner aimed at both fans and those interested in the cultural and social aspects of Doctor Who and fan culture. The editor is particularly interested in exploring the changing characteristics of Doctor Who fandom, from scholars and fans alike, over the fifty-year history of the programme.
