[UPDATE] In More's Footsteps: Utopia and Science Fiction

updated: 
Sunday, November 1, 2015 - 4:40pm
Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction

We have extended the deadline for this special issue of the journal. Next year marks the 500th anniversary of Sir Thomas More's seminal work, Utopia. Although the text has been of importance within Renaissance Studies and political philosophy, it has also occupied a special place within science fiction for helping to popularise the notion of 'the Great Good Place' to which society should strive to perfect. Whether directly or indirectly, More's text has been of huge significance for the utopian strand that runs through much science fiction.

We invite contributors to submit 6000 word articles on any aspect of More's text and its relationship to modern and contemporary science fiction. Topics might include (but are not limited to):
