deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

We’ve just finished a successful Kickstarter that raised $660 from backers.  That money will fund prizes for authors who submit the best “visions” (short essays of 800-1,000 words) of how we might (not) adapt to life in a climate-changed world.

Visions are “fictional” because they take place in the future, but they are based on the storyteller’s imagination or practitioner’s knowledge.

Anyone can submit a story or perspective no matter the author’s background, qualifications or job.

There will be four categories of prizes:

Bodies on the Line: Intersections between Gender and Dis|ability

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018

For a long time the relationship between gender and dis|ability has been viewed in a subtractive or additive fashion, often pointing to the emasculation of men or double discrimination against women. The portrayal of dis|ability annihilating gender and exacerbating systems of oppression can be found in mainstream media and disciplinary scholarship alike. While identity is commonly explored through the axes of race, class, and gender, arguments have been put forward to include the category of the body or dis|ability (Smith & Hutchison 2006, Winker & Degele 2009, Walgenbach 2007).

To mark the 200th anniversary, in 2018, of Mary Shelley’s novel, we invite articles for a special issue, examining the impact of Shelley’s creation on the development of sf. Following Brian Aldiss’ critical intervention in Billion Year Spree (1973), this is a relationship that has often been explored, so we would like to encourage contributions that investigate the afterlives of Shelley’s novel within the sf genre in new and innovative ways. Topics may include (but are not confined to) the following areas:

ACCUMULATION TECHNOLOGIES: DATABASES AND 'OTHER' ARCHIVES is an international symposium focused on archival practices. It is conducted within the framework of the Research Project Global Art Archive (GAA), and organized by Art Globalization Interculturality (AGI) and the Faculty of Geography and History of the University of Barcelona.

In the past few years archive has generated a great interest within art theories and practices, as well as in other fields of culture, such as the scientific or the academic ones. The expansion of this discussion has finally given voice to agents as data technicians and archivists, whom surely have a lot to say around the archive.
