Science Fiction Studies: Special Issue on Climate Crisis

updated: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:09pm
Science Fiction Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

SFS is planning a special issue on “Science Fiction and the Climate Crisis” that we see as part of an urgent and ongoing conversation with colleagues in the humanities, the social sciences, and the sciences. In the energy humanities and other interdisciplinary fields, the climate crisis unfolds differentially as description, allegory, abstract model, immanent materiality, slow apocalypse, and the end of humanist philosophy. We welcome submissions that address the intersections of science fiction and the climate crisis in historical and/or theoretical terms and in multiple media forms from the pulps to science-fiction media and art.
