The Museum of Science Fiction is accepting 250-word proposals for 15-20 minute papers to be presented at this year’s Escape Velocity Conference in National Harbor Maryland, May 24th – 26th, 2019.

 

As technological development continues to advance at an unprecedented rate, humanity finds itself more and more integrated with, and oftentimes dependent on, technological amplifications, interventions, and solutions. As such technology becomes commonplace, blurring the boundaries between organic and synthetic life, we might ask ourselves, will we someday reach a point where being “human” ceases to mean anything?

Rebel? Prophet? Relic?

Perspectives on George Orwell in 2019

 

University College London (UCL)

24-25 May 2019

 

John Rodden closes the preface to his 1989 book, The Politics of Literary Reputation: The Making and Claiming of ‘St. George’ Orwell with the assertion:

                       

Orwell poses unusual, and valuable, difficulties by virtue of the complex, highly personal response to him by readers; and he offers unusual, if complicated, opportunities by his politicized reception and the diversity of his audiences. The rare and auspicious fact is that Orwell has been both an extraordinarily popular serious writer and a critically acclaimed one. (xiii)
