CFP: Speculative Visions (Invisible Culture, Issue 27)

Invisible Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2017

For its twenty-seventh issue, InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture invites scholarly articles and creative works that address the complex and multiple meanings of speculative visions.

The last decade has seen a rise in popularity among science fiction, fantasy, and horror. These genres encourage the capacity to imagine post-human bodies, extraordinary worlds, techno-utopias, and claustrophobic spaces of violence. In their reliance upon the imagination, these speculative visions provide a space to consider contradictions and a carnivalesque interaction between popular culture and critical theory.

The topic of this literature panel is “Gender Portrayals in Science Fiction Literature,” and aims to discuss the ways in which our modern notions on gender shape our speculations on the future.
