Speculative Fiction – SAMLA – November 8-10, 2019

Lisa Wenger Bro / Speculative Fiction Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 20, 2019

Speculative fiction covers a broad range of narrative styles and genres.  The cohesive element that pulls works together under the category is that there is some “unrealistic” element, whether it’s magical, supernatural, or a futuristic/technological development: works that fall into the category stray from conventional realism in some way.   For this reason, speculative fiction can be quite broad, including everything from fantasy and magical realism to horror and science fiction—from China Miéville to Margaret Atwood to Philip K. Dick. This panel aims to explore those unrealistic elements and all their varied implications about society, politics, economics, and more.

Conference Theme: “Upheaval and Reconstruction”

Tracing the origins of what he calls the “Myth of the [Great] War,” Samuel Hynes has argued that soldier-poets and memoirists gave this narrative of the conflict its “fullest definition” in the late 1920s and early 1930s, and that it “can be reduced to two terse propositions: the old betray the young; the past is remote and useless” (A War Imagined x). “No generation since then has questioned its validity,” Hynes continues; rather, the soldier-poets’ account is “repeated in texts written by authors who did not experience the war, but who inherited its myth.”
