Speculative Fiction – SAMLA – November 2-4, 2018

Speculative Fiction Association / Lisa Bro
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 20, 2018

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 Gabriel García Márquez to China Miéville to Octavia Butler.  This panel aims to explore those unrealistic elements and all their varied implications about society, politics, economics, and more.  Please submit a 250-300 word abstract, a brief bio, and any A/V needs by May 2

Major civilizations of the world – Indian and Greek – based their models of education on inter-relatedness of various disciplines. However, with the focus on specialization and technology, liberal arts suffered at the expense of science and technology. But recently the discipline of Liberal arts and Human sciences has attained an unprecedented popularity in various Universities all over the world. The present world of the 21st century is strongly underpinned by rapid developments in the field of science and technology and accompanied by the ever-spreading roots of a global economy. The question then arises as to what role liberal education can play in the world mired in technological innovations spawned by globalization.
