Special Issue on SF, Fantasy, and Myth

DEADLINE: 31 May 2010

More than one commentator has mentioned that science fiction as a form is where theological narrative went after Paradise Lost, and this is undoubtedly true…The form is often used as a way of acting out the consequences of a theological doctrine….Extraterrestrials have taken the place of angels, demons, fairies and saints, though it must be said that this last group is now making a comeback.
—Margaret Atwood, "Why We Need Science Fiction"

The Value of Work

This conference aims to bring together people from a wide range of disciplines, professions and vocations to focus on a fundamental aspect of human life: work.

Work has pervasive influence on human life. Where we live, how we live, how we learn and see the world is strongly shaped by the work we do. Since the industrial revolution some of the expected benefits of the implementation of technology, and contemporary management have not been realised.

Utopian Animals (5/1/10; 2010 Society for Utopian Studies Annual Meeting)

In H.G. Wells's A Modern Utopia (1905), the narrator holds a remarkable conversation between the narrator and a dog-loving botanist who declares that the stated purposes of purging contagious diseases would never, for him, justify the mass extermination of pet dogs. The botanist staunchly concludes, "I do not like your utopia, if there are to be no dogs."

As evidenced by the March 2009 PMLA's special section and the October 2009 Chronicle of Higher Education's coverage on the emerging field of animal studies, the question of the animal has risen to interdisciplinary prominence as scholars increasingly heed Claude Levi-Strauss' advice to think with the animal.

Any papers relating to Anglo-American literary relations during the last third of the 19th-century, and trickling into the 20th-century, will be most welcome.

I am particularly interested in questions of how transatlantic literature of the period influenced
