Fantastic London
LonCon, August 2014

Proposals are welcome on "Fantastic London" for the academic programme at Loncon 3, the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention.

To reflect the history and population of London, the host city, the theme of the academic programme is 'Diversity'. We will be exploring science fiction, fantasy, horror, and all forms of speculative fiction, whether in novels, comics, television, and movies or in fanworks, art, radio plays, games, advertising, and music.

For these panels, we are particularly soliciting submissions examining any element of fantastic and speculative British literature before 1900.

Oh you lost God! You endless trace!
Only because in the end hate divided you
are we  now  nature's  mouth  and  listeners.  
~ Rilke, The Sonnets to Orpheus, 26

A 'trace'  can be that which has existed, and which is now past; or that which has passed, in the case of a track or a footprint; or that which copied or drawn or outlined, such as a map or a word in the sand. It can be used as a noun or a verb: as an object or concept, or an active process of discovery.

This section is organized by the Reception Study Society (RSS), an association that promotes cross-disciplinary dialogue among all areas of reception studies, including reader-response criticism and pedagogy, history of reading and the book, reception history, and audience, communication, and media studies.

Second Symposium on Asians in the Americas, 27-28 Sept 2013, Malibu, CA

updated: 
Monday, April 1, 2013 - 10:34pm
Pepperdine U

This symposium aims to explore the multifaceted representations of Asian lives in the Americas in history, sociology, religion, anthropology, art, education, film, and popular culture. In contemporary diaspora, globalization, and transnational studies we are reminded of the movement of Asians to the Americas as a people and through representations. We emphasize that although Asians have been in the Americas since at least the 16th Century, the movement of Asians outside of Asia is, ostensibly, a footnote in many fields. Similarly, current scholarship of Asians in the Americas focuses on East Asians in the Americas and rarely discusses South Asians, Southeast Asians, Central Asians, and Western Asians.
