In the last decades, acts of globalization –a product of the late capitalism in the so called first world– have spread simulacra of wealth and wellness everywhere. As a consequence, people from the peripheries embark on the diaspora to reach a better future, and need to overcome all kinds of struggles. Thus, frontiers, the cornerstone of geopolitics, play a crucial role in the control of migratory movements. In this state of affairs, there is a growing number of writers and artists who embrace the genre of science fiction to articulate experiences of displacement, marginalization or resistance, as well as to interrogate the very nature of borderlands.

We know the four tenets of True Womanhood and understand the Feminine Mystique. But, today, what gender role prescriptions still proliferate concerning domesticity and work, family affairs and public relationships? Anne-Marie Slaughter tells us women still can’t have it all. Barbara Spar shreds the Superwoman myth. But, Ariana Huffington tells us we can THRIVE if we just have the third metric. These three notably professional women have differing views. Can and should women decorate like the Gaines, cook like the Barefoot Contessa, thrive professionally like Huffington, be sexy as Kim Kardashian, not miss kids’ soccer practices, and all the while smiling? Has or can contemporary women break out of the American ideological boundaries?

Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

This special 10th anniversary issue of Transformative Works and Cultures seeks to explore the future of fandom while looking back to its past. How might scholarship on fandom's past and present invite speculation about its future? And what might the possible futures invoked by technological, ecological, and political discourses mean for fandom's communities and practices? Science fiction in particular--the field whose strategies spawned fandom, and the genre in which much fan activity occurs--has used imagined futures to shed new light on the present and the past. In turn, studying where we are and where we have been allows us to imagine where we may be heading.
