This call is seeking papers with an interest in the way in which utopic/dystopic worlds in film, literature, and television (defined loosely) explore our relationship to technology.

In filmic explorations of the future technology and our dependence on it are often critiqued or otherwise explored.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2016

Margaret Atwood Studies invites submissions of articles that focus on ageism and aging in Atwood’s works or in the works of both Atwood and other authors, such as Doris Lessing, another prolific and influential woman writer who examines these themes. This special issue aims to explore the ways these writers present the passing of time in relation to life experiences and self-consciousness. Articles might discuss the works’ depictions of what it means to come of age, how age and the aging process change how we see ourselves, when and how one becomes old, ways that gender affects the aging process, and how age discrimination shapes societies and individuals.Submissions due 1 September 2016.
