Science Fiction and the “Worldly”,, a panel at (dis)junctions Graduate Conference, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE Feb 11

full name / name of organization: 
University of California, Riverside
contact email: 
disjunctions2013@gmail.com

In “Reflections on Exile”, Edward Said writes that theoretical interventions need to engage with the “worldly situation”, the messy, unstable mosaic through which the long history of colonialism affects a diverse set of political affiliations, global disparities, international divisions of labor, regional rivalries, national identities, cosmopolitan ideologies, green, queer, and leftist movements. Science fiction, likewise, has seen a recent surge in interest and scrutiny devoted to postcolonial and global problematics including works by Istvan Csicsery-Ronay Jr. (2003), John Reider (2008), and Patricia Kerslake (2011). This call for papers welcomes in submission interested in further exploring the role of the postcolonial and global in science fiction.
