Organic Systems: Environments, Bodies and Culture in Science Fiction

updated: 
Monday, April 3, 2017 - 2:07pm
London Science Fiction Research Community (Birkbeck + Royal Holloway)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Though often understood in ecological terms, the word ‘environment’ can also be viewed more widely as the surroundings and conditions of a specific system—whether they be mechanical, biological, social or chemical. Culture arises from and then informs these systems, becoming itself a further component of environments. Science fictional texts have explored the interactions between culture, environments and bodies on a wide spectrum of scale: from the level of a planetary biosphere or climate system (e.g. terraforming) to a single body or organ (e.g. genetic engineering). This conference will gather Science Fiction researchers, critics, authors and readers together to discuss intersections between cultural and organic systems in all forms of SF media.

Ethical Branding: Best Practice Cases and Lessons from the World's Most Ethical and Unethical Companies

 

Overview of the Book

In a contemporary environment of “truthiness” and fake news, it is more important than ever to review core principles of ethics and to reassess how these principles apply to today’s marketing practices. The proposed book will address best practices in ethical branding, corporate culture, and such topics as truth, integrity, value, and differentiation. Collectively, these cases will provide a comprehensive overview of best practice in ethical branding.

Suggested Topics (not exclusive listing)

Penny Dreadful (2014-2016) has become one of the most critical well-regarded shows of the post-millennial Gothic television revival, drawing explicitly on classic tropes, texts and characters throughout its three-season run. However, despite the show’s critical success and cult following, a substantive academic examination of the show has yet to be undertaken.
