[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):

Romantic Textualities

"Teaching Romanticism: Shakespearean Legacies"

As part of the ongoing series, Teaching Romanticism, we will consider Shakespeare's influence on Regency-era editors, essayists, novelists, poets, and forgers. It would be particularly useful to hear about which texts educators use and in what context, whether they place certain poems or prose works against those of Shakespeare, or connect these texts via contemporary works or theoretical practices…. or something else entirely!

Salient details:Individual entries can of course vary (as it's an online blog), but a typical entry should be about 200-400 words in length. Entries generally take an hour to write up.
