Slayage: The Journal of Whedon Studies
The idea of Slayage was born in the spring of 2001 as David Lavery and Rhonda V. Wilcox considered over one hundred and forty proposals submitted for possible inclusion in Fighting the Forces: What's at Stake in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Rowman & Littlefield, 2002). They learned, too, that two other collections of essays on Buffy were also in the works. It seemed obvious that there existed a not-soon-to-be-exhausted international critical and scholarly interest in Buffy. With Whoosh! The Journal of the International Association of Xenoid Studies in mind as a model, Slayage was born. In the spring of 2010, beginning with Volume 8, Number 1, Slayage became The Journal of the Whedon Studies Association. Originally a quarterly, Slayage is now published twice a year. Lavery and Wilcox continue to serve as the journal's editors.
Slayage also has an undergraduate equivalent called Watcher Junior, edited by Jodie A. Kreider and Meghan K. Winchell. Learn more about WJ on its webpages.
