Tuesday, May 22, 2012 - 1:52pm

When it comes to food production and consumption, science fiction offers us contrasting visions of hope and horror. Sometimes, works in this genre paint utopian pictures of consumer choice and convenience; other times, the future of food looks quite bleak, with today's troubling trends (ex: Genetically Modified Organisms) extrapolated to worst-case scenarios. Please submit a 250-500 word abstract pertaining to the intersecting questions of science fiction (literature, television, and/or film) and food politics to Sean Murray, St. John's University,

This conference provides an environment to encounter and engage recent work by those who situate their teaching, research, writing, creative activities, and advocacy on and beyond an academic campus. This call for proposals centers on the ways in which academic research, creative activities, and pedagogy can directly affect and become embedded in these communities.
