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.

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.

Religions make normative claims and scholars have normative commitments. However, religious studies often conceives of itself as an empirical discipline, aligning itself with other disciplines that are ostensibly descriptive, like history, sociology, and anthropology. This tension has led to polarization within religious studies.
