In the spirit of this year's conference theme of "Border States," we welcome papers that explore borders—or the blurring of such borders--within Science and Fiction.

* Women in Science Fiction
* Images of science in literature
* Energy resources in literature
* The image of the scientific utopia
* Science and progress
* The human body and/or its representation
* Representations of the apocalypse, dystopias, or other disasters in literature

South Atlantic Modern Languages Association

Marxist critics from Adorno to Fredric Jameson have emphasized the revolutionary potential of modernism in its effort to project viable alternatives to capitalism. Indeed, one of the central goals of avant-garde artistic production is the radical break from existing norms, with experimentation serving as a means of liberation from artistic values and institutions deemed both oppressive and outmoded. But it is also, to varying degrees, a rhetoric of reform.

The BBC television series Downton Abbey, developed and produced by Academy Award winner Julian Fellowes, has become a cultural barometer with American viewers harkening back to the days when televised serial dramas ruled the airwaves. Its recent series finale was one of the most-watched in television history.

Exploring Downton Abbey is a collection of scholarly essays that interrogate this cultural phenomenon – the essays challenge readers to explore how and why this British television serial about life upstairs and downstairs in a British, turn-of-the-century manor home resonates with American audiences.

UPDATE MSA 18: Modernism's Planets (November 17-20, Pasadena, CA, USA)

Planets colliding: Spivak, Friedman, Dimock. The 'planet', as metaphor, object, method, problem, and more, has made multiple entries into the discipline of literary studies, all of which bear on the study of modernism, broadly conceived. Ecocritical, postcolonial, and comparative methods have been at the forefront of the planetary conversation, but, as the word 'planet' suggests, there is more than enough room for more planetary interventions.
