TRUTHINESS

April 29, 2017 @ Stanford University 

“Fiction must stick to facts, and the truer the facts the better the fiction...” -Virginia Woolf

Nietzsche defines truth as “a mobile army of metaphors, metonymies, anthropomorphisms, in short, a sum of human relations…which, after lengthy use, seem firm, canonical and binding to a people.” For whom is it binding, and in what sense are they bound?

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein at 200 (Science Fiction Studies, Special Issue)

updated: 
Thursday, March 9, 2017 - 3:55pm
Nicole Lobdell and Michael Griffin
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 1, 2017

Science Fiction Studies is currently soliciting proposals for a July 2018 special issue celebrating the bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818), a work that forever changed the genre of science fiction. In Frankenstein, Shelley experimented not only with subject matter, new scientific inventions and their many terrifying and horrific possibilities, but also narrative and form. Her use of multiple frame narratives, nested one within another, was a notable shift from the eighteenth-century novels she grew up reading, and her merging of popular culture’s fascination with science and the Gothic broadened the emerging genre of science fiction.
