Metamorphosis refers to a dramatic change in the form, structure or character of an entity, distinctly characterised as a process whereby the old is subsumed, absorbed or self-devoured to provide the substance to forge the new—but how is this concept experienced in contemporary culture?
How does metamorphosis materialise in research practice, academia, social justice, or identity? What social, political or cultural forces engender metamorphosis, and how have these transformations been received? Is metamorphosis creative or destructive? Tangible or intangible? Abrupt or fluid?

The Society for the Study of Southern Literature invites papers on the South and science fiction for a panel at the South Atlantic Modern Language Association’s 93rd Annual Conference from November 4-6, 2021 in Atlanta, GA. Papers may discuss any of the subgenres of science fiction, including alternate history, afrofuturism, post-apocalyptic, scifi gothic, traditional, ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ science fiction, scifi horror, etc., and may focus on any form of media as long as the South, its history, culture, or locale intersects in some way.
Playing on the SAMLA 93 conference theme of “Social Networks and Social Distance,” the Society for the Study of Southern Literature invites papers on topics relevant to questions and issues of Southern networks and distance. A region often rendered into a single, monolithic entity, the South as articulated in various literatures rests at intersections of global politics, culture, economy, and history, which are often overlooked in traditional Southern studies.
