[DEADLINE EXTENDED] Journal of Science Fiction Special Issue on Environmental Studies
The MOSF Journal of Science Fiction is accepting submissions for a special issue on environmental studies and science fiction to be released in the summer of 2020, and has extended the submission deadline to Monday, June 1st. We have received a number of excellent submissions, which are currently under review, but we have decided to seek a few additional high-quality pieces for consideration as well.

The International Virginia Woolf Society is pleased to host its twenty-first consecutive panel at the University of Louisville’s Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900, scheduled for February 18-21, 2021. We invite proposals for critical papers on any topic concerning Woolf’s work. A specific panel theme may be decided upon depending on the proposals received. Previous IVWS panels have met with great enthusiasm at Louisville, and we look forward to another successful session.
NB: We are acutely aware that this CFP coincides with extremely uncertain times re COVID-19. Of course, it is currently unknown when gatherings of people will be able to resume as normal. We have every intention of holding this event in October, but first and foremost must prioritise the safety of our attendees. If necessary, we will either postpone the conference or host it virtually.
