Science Fiction Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

SFS is planning a special issue on “Science Fiction and the Climate Crisis” that we see as part of an urgent and ongoing conversation with colleagues in the humanities, the social sciences, and the sciences. In the energy humanities and other interdisciplinary fields, the climate crisis unfolds differentially as description, allegory, abstract model, immanent materiality, slow apocalypse, and the end of humanist philosophy. We welcome submissions that address the intersections of science fiction and the climate crisis in historical and/or theoretical terms and in multiple media forms from the pulps to science-fiction media and art.

South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

This panel seeks papers about any aspect of Early Modern Drama and Ecocriticism. Presenters are welcome to address the SAMLA 89 theme, as well as themes important to the study of Early Modern drama and Ecocriticism (i.e. nature, ecology, anthropocentrism, recycling, and sustainability). Responses to some of the following boundary transgressions in popular culture are particularly encouraged: How does Early Modern drama alert audiences to the materiality and interconnectivity of human subjectivity? How do the storms, anatomy lessons, catalogues of plants and animals, and forests in the old plays we read inform the contemporary climate crisis? How does Early Modern drama complicate the “anthropo” of the Anthropocene?
