MMLA Panel

updated: 
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 2:36pm
Science and Fiction Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 5, 2019

Taking up the MMLA conference theme, “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgängers,” the panel for Science and Fiction seeks proposals engaging the presence of the double in fiction inflected or inspired by science, medicine, or technology; the fields’ theories or methods; or their practitioners. Oftentimes, the double is associated with the horror genre and presented as emblematic of Freud’s ideas about the uncanny, or the unheimlich (unhomely is the literal translation). The term describes the feeling of unease or fear one gets from experiencing something familiar turned uncomfortably strange. Fred Botting, however, notes that horror and science fiction each “give form to a sense of otherness” (Botting, 2008, 131).

We live in them, move through them, occupy them, gentrify them, lay claim, then
reclaim them, tame them and maim them. We build them, enrich them, define
them, consign them. They can be first or final frontiers, domestic or foreign, and
they can even encapsulate moments—curvatures in time. Given that space is the
fundamental medium through which we live our lives, how do we define spaces,
and how do spaces define us?
