Special journal issue - Moon Rise

updated: 
Tuesday, June 26, 2018 - 10:56am
Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 28, 2019

To mark the 50th anniversary of the first successful manned Moon landing, we invite articles for a special issue, examining how the Moon has been depicted since 1969 in science fiction. As Marjorie Hope Nicolson showed in her classic study of Voyages to the Moon (1948), fantasies of moon flight have been an integral part of world literature since classical times. Since moon flight became a reality, how have these stories changed? From adventure series such as Space 1999 to films such as Duncan Jones’ Moon and novels such as Ian McDonald’s Luna sequence, Earth’s satellite has remained a source of fascination.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 15, 2018

There has been a long relationship between television and medicine: some of the small screen’s most popular shows, on both sides of the Atlantic, have been medical in focus, from hospital-set dramas like ER to reality TV shows and docudramas like One Born Every Minute.
