call for paper: Trans-Humanities

Monday, November 2, 2015 - 1:04am
Trans-Humanities: Ewha Institute for the Humanities, Seoul, Korea

Trans-Humanities is an academic journal envisioning a new horizon for the humanities. The journal is published by the Ewha Institute for the Humanities (EIH) which has pursued the Humanities Korea (HK) Project since 2007 with its agenda "Trans-Humanities: Reimagining and Reconstructing the Human Sciences." Trans-Humanities aims to transcend the limits of the existing humanities studies as rigid disciplinary research and offer instead an arena for discussion to generate new humanities discourses that can respond to the age of trans-boundary culture by supporting researches with interdisciplinary, convergent, and practical implications.

[UPDATE] In More's Footsteps: Utopia and Science Fiction

Sunday, November 1, 2015 - 4:40pm
Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction

We have extended the deadline for this special issue of the journal. Next year marks the 500th anniversary of Sir Thomas More's seminal work, Utopia. Although the text has been of importance within Renaissance Studies and political philosophy, it has also occupied a special place within science fiction for helping to popularise the notion of 'the Great Good Place' to which society should strive to perfect. Whether directly or indirectly, More's text has been of huge significance for the utopian strand that runs through much science fiction.

We invite contributors to submit 6000 word articles on any aspect of More's text and its relationship to modern and contemporary science fiction. Topics might include (but are not limited to):
