Sublime Cognition: Science Fiction and Metaphysics

updated: 
Tuesday, March 6, 2018 - 6:00am
London Science Fiction Research Community
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Deploying the broad catch-all of ‘metaphysics’, this conference will explore SF’s lost history of engagement with myth, magic, religion and the supernatural. Central areas of focus will include an assessment of what role (if any) metaphysical phenomena have played in science fiction, and to what degree SF can be distanced from the spiritual, supernatural and numinous concerns of other literatures of the fantastic. Assessing SF’s complex relationship with the metaphysical opens into many productive areas of inquiry: How can science fictional texts help us understand broader cultural processes of knowledge formation and paradigm shift?

Writing the Black Country

updated: 
Monday, March 5, 2018 - 11:19am
The University of Wolverhampton
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 30, 2018

Writing the Black Country is a blog edited by Dr Paul McDonald and R. M. Francis, from the Centre of Transnational and Transcultural Research at University of Wolverhampton in the UK. It's designed to showcase writing about England's industrial Midlands, and we are interested particularly in poetry and short prose pieces that focus on specific areas within the region.

We're less interested in writing about the region generally, but are looking for site, place or area specific work. For example, using a town, a street, a site as a point of departure or as setting for a work of fiction or poetry.

In time, this blog will transition, becoming an online, interactive literary map.

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

The idea of a “lost generation” still has a hold on the popular imagination over ninety years after it was popularized via the epigraph of The Sun Also Rises.  For literary scholars and historians, though, that idea is critically worn-out if not simply useless.  This panel seeks to understand anew this old idea.  Questions to be addressed include but are not limited to:

How has the idea of the lost generation been critically and historically misunderstood and/or abused?
