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.

Reimagining Ecologies of Time/Place in Postcolonial Fiction (NeMLA 2018)

Postcolonialism and ecocriticism have often been at odds with one another for the main reason that postcoloniality typically concerns itself with issues of displacement and diaspora, while ecocritical practice attends to a very specific ethics of place. However, as critics such as David Mazel argue, there exists an ability to interpret the land through the lens of a “poststructuralist ecocriticism” that encompasses “a way of reading environmental literature and canonical landscapes that attends concurrently to the discursive construction of both…environment and subjectivity,” creating an “analysis of the environment as a powerful site for naturalizing constructs of race, class, nationality, and gender” (American Literary Environmentalism, xxi).
