A scholarly treatment of the award-winning science fiction series Farscape is currently under consideration for publication. This book, tentatively entitled, "'Scaping the Territories: Critical Explorations of Farscape" will be a collection of essays with the general objective of increasing the critical academic exploration of this series. The first editor of this collection has published an essay on the women of Farscape in her book Our Space, Our Place: Women in the Worlds of Science Fiction Television (UPA, 2005). A book examining Farscape was published previously (Battis, IB Taurus, 2007) and addressed divergent social issues such as masculinity and femininity, sexuality, racism and imperialism. The proposed book aims to expand discussion of these issues and the series by examining the myriad ways in which scholars and fans envision themes explored during the airing of the original series, and its extension into print media, including graphic novels. ***Note the deadline extension.***
