CALL FOR PAPERS: Edited Collection on the Ethical Legal and Social Implications of Emerging Technologies

 

Emerging technologies in robotics, genomic and reproductive medicine, and urban design are changing the ways humans relate to one another, our communities, future persons, and our environment. Ethics is fundamentally relational, and societies are structured through negotiating the multiplicity of relationships, shared customs, and laws that are intended to promote wellbeing. As such, shifts in those fundamental relationships arising from the introduction of new technologies, or novel application of existing technologies, have enormous ethical, legal and social implications.

In their 2011 text, Teaching Science Fiction, Andy Sawyer and Peter Wright posit that science fiction is "one of the most effective genres for challenging the perspectives of a student body" (1). Yet Teaching Science Fiction is one of the few recent compendiums on teaching speculative fiction; the last significant scholarly focus on speculative fiction and pedagogy was in the 1970s and 1980s. The majority of publications after 2000 on teaching science fiction consider the teaching of science through science fiction.
