Science Fiction and the “Worldly”,, a panel at (dis)junctions Graduate Conference, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE Feb 11

full name / name of organization: 
Josh Pearson and Sarah Lozier, University of California Riverside
contact email: 
disjunctions2013@gmail.com

In “Reflections on Exile”, Edward Said writes that theoretical interventions need to engage with the “worldly situation”, the messy, unstable mosaic through which the long history of colonialism affects a diverse set of political affiliations, global disparities, international divisions of labor, regional rivalries, national identities, cosmopolitan ideologies, green, queer, and leftist movements. Science fiction, likewise, has seen a recent surge in interest and scrutiny devoted to postcolonial and global problematics including works by Istvan Csicsery-Ronay Jr. (2003), John Reider (2008), and Patricia Kerslake (2011). This call for papers welcomes in submission interested in further exploring the role of the postcolonial and global in science fiction.

Studies of celebrity, fame, notoriety, and stardom have become increasingly complex and important in our media saturated society. Beginning with studies of fame--which focused on a wide variety of figures that operated in the public sphere, including politicians, religious figures, and military heroes--and studies of stardom--which interrogated stars like Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Diahann Carroll and Lucille Ball as symbols of societal fears, prejudices, and desires--the field of celebrity studies has continued to evolve, accommodating the changes in media and the relationship between the individual and the public sphere in the 21st century.
