Science and Fiction Panel Deadline Extended

MMLA Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 19, 2019

Taking up the MMLA conference theme, “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgängers,” the panel for Science and Fiction seeks proposals engaging the presence of the double in fiction inflected or inspired by science, medicine, or technology; the fields’ theories or methods; or their practitioners. Oftentimes, the double is associated with the horror genre and presented as emblematic of Freud’s ideas about the uncanny, or the unheimlich (unhomely is the literal translation). The term describes the feeling of unease or fear one gets from experiencing something familiar turned uncomfortably strange. Fred Botting, however, notes that horror and science fiction each “give form to a sense of otherness” (Botting, 2008, 131).

Museum of Science Fiction/Escape Velocity Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2019

The Museum of Science Fiction is accepting 250-word proposals for 15-20 minute papers to be presented at this year’s Escape Velocity Conference in National Harbor Maryland, May 24th – 26th, 2019.

As technological development continues to advance at an unprecedented rate, humanity finds itself more and more integrated with, and oftentimes dependent on, technological amplifications, interventions, and solutions. As such technology becomes commonplace, blurring the boundaries between organic and synthetic life, we might ask ourselves, will we someday reach a point where being “human” ceases to mean anything?
