OUTSIDE THE FRAME OF THEORY
June 23-24, 2017
University of Freiburg
SFS is planning a special issue on “Science Fiction and the Climate Crisis” that we see as part of an urgent and ongoing conversation with colleagues in the humanities, the social sciences, and the sciences. In the energy humanities and other interdisciplinary fields, the climate crisis unfolds differentially as description, allegory, abstract model, immanent materiality, slow apocalypse, and the end of humanist philosophy. We welcome submissions that address the intersections of science fiction and the climate crisis in historical and/or theoretical terms and in multiple media forms from the pulps to science-fiction media and art.

An International, Interdisciplinary Conference

The Leonora Carrington Centenary Symposium will celebrate and bring into discussion the work and legacy of Lancastrian-born Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington (1917-2011). This timely event forms part of the existing body of research and creative practice that has already emanated from across departments at Edge Hill University, including Film Scholarship (Professor Roger Shannon), Creative Writing (Professor Ailsa Cox), and Dance Performance and Choreography (James Hewison and Michelle Man). We now call upon artists and scholars from a range of disciplines to share research and creative practice that explores Carrington’s work as an artist, a theatre and film collaborator, and writer.
