However, in the last several years it has become increasingly clear that reading continues to be an important aspect of our cultural practice, even as it manifests itself in multiple forms. This panel invites papers that concern themselves with both the history and the future of reading.

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

Josh Pearson and Sarah Lozier, University of California Riverside

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.

Video games are a space in which encounters are enacted on many different levels. There are encounters within the game’s narrative space; encounters at the interface of player and narrative; and encounters within the external gaming space (think two-player games). These encounters can also be broken down into player-computer and player-player encounters. This panel invites papers that explore these different spaces of encounter in video games.
