With Fox's hit Empire and the upcoming release of the new Star Wars movie, ideas of empires and imperialism are once again circulating in popular culture. With questions of empire at the center, the College of St. Joseph is seeking presentations for its 5th annual popular culture conference, held April 8-9 in Rutland, VT. Presentations can explore any popular manifestations of empires, and diverse methodologies and systems of inquiry are welcomed. Some ideas for presentations [this list should not be seen as limiting]:
In an unpublished foreword to The Preserving Machine, Philip K. Dick lamented that "As a writer builds up a novel-length piece it slowly begins to imprison him, to take away his freedom."

"It is in SF stories," he claimed, "that SF action occurs."
