deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 6, 2017

Our social, political, and religious climate has been dominated recently by a mood of collective fear, regarding everything from economic anxiety, the outbreak of new and frightening diseases, mass shootings, social tension and violence between law enforcement and communities of color, environmental and technological dangers, and the threat of terrorism both foreign and domestic.  Where is there room for hope in such times of uncertainty and fear?  Indeed, what would hope look like?  What might the interplay be between hope and fear as we reflect on the past, present, and future not only of this country, but of humanity as a whole?  How might respect and compassion overcome division and mistrust in our discourse and interactions?

EXTENDED DEADLINE: Abstracts due February 13, 2017.

Joss Whedon’s short-lived series Firefly developed a fierce following while it aired from 2002 to 2003. After its cancellation, fans cried foul and demanded more, which eventually led to the 2005 feature film follow-up Serenity, along with several tie-in comic books. The series and film were celebrated for their mixing of science fiction and western iconography, dystopic settings, progressive gender representations, underdog storylines, and clever and fast-paced dialogue.
