April 2018 will see the 20th Anniversary of the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement, the central protections of which are currently under threat from the Brexit negotiations, special elections and the RHI Scandal. This special issue will discuss the impact and legacy of this Agreement on social, political and cultural life in Northern Ireland. The Agreement has proven strangely resilient. It has suffered many challenges, from inside and out, for the last 20 years but at the time of writing remains enshrined in UK and Irish law.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein at 200 (Science Fiction Studies, Special Issue)

Thursday, March 9, 2017 - 3:55pm
Nicole Lobdell and Michael Griffin
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 1, 2017

Science Fiction Studies is currently soliciting proposals for a July 2018 special issue celebrating the bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818), a work that forever changed the genre of science fiction. In Frankenstein, Shelley experimented not only with subject matter, new scientific inventions and their many terrifying and horrific possibilities, but also narrative and form. Her use of multiple frame narratives, nested one within another, was a notable shift from the eighteenth-century novels she grew up reading, and her merging of popular culture’s fascination with science and the Gothic broadened the emerging genre of science fiction.

Friday, March 31, 2017

MLA Working Group on "Nonhuman Forms"  Humanistic inquiry of late is obsessed with the nonhuman. Uncoupling the humanities from the human, the range of approaches operating under the umbrella of “the nonhuman turn” have reconfigured the standard divide between subject and object, agency and volition, person and thing.
