Science Fiction and Biopolitics -- journal issue -- February 15, 2011
Science Fiction Film and Television (http://liverpool.metapress.com/content/121631/) is seeing articles for a special issue on biopolitics.
How do biopolitial theories of figures such as Foucault, Hardt and Negri, Esposito and Agamben inform readings of sf? What can sf contribute to ongoing discussions of biopolitial governance? What can sf visions of posthumanism tell us about life under biopolitical capitalism? How can recent work on life in/as capital, by scholars such as Nikolas Rose, Melinda Cooper and Kaushik Sunder Rajan, inform our readings of sf?
Submissions should be made via our website at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/lup-sfftv.
The deadline for submission to this special issue is February 15, 2011.
