Greetings. 

The Great Shark Hunt is Hunter S. Thompson’s first volume of Gonzo Journalism, spanning about twenty years of articles which experimented in blending and bending genre. What makes these articles experimental is his unconventional use of fiction and humor in sports writing and political commentary.

Elsewhere: Wandering In and Out of the Humanities 

J. R. R. Tolkien once wrote, “Not all those who wander are lost.” Although this quotation has experienced its fair share of "inspirational quote" status by both Tolkien and Coachella fans alike, there remains a question of what "wandering" and "being elsewhere" means for the academic community.

The Domestic

 

In light of recent questions of immigration and terrorism, international politics has recently seen a surge in concern for “domestic” issues: the security, well-being, and unity of the nation. Increasingly, countries like France and the United States are “closing their doors” to the rest of the world, reasserting the boundaries of their “homelands.”

MOSF Journal of Science Fiction @ Escape Velocity 2017

 

(DEADLINE EXTENDED: MAY 31ST; SEEKING ONE ADDITIONAL SUBMISSION)

 

The MOSF Journal of Science Fiction is accepting 250 word proposals for 15-20 minute papers for this year’s Escape Velocity Conference in Washington, D.C, September 1st – 3rd.

The topic of this literature panel is “Technology of the Soul and of the self,” and aims to discuss posthumanism, metaphysics, and identity politics. More specifically, we would love papers discussing the boundaries of what we might consider the human “soul” or self and where we locate the parameters of personhood in a technologically enhanced world.
