The US and the World We Inhabit

University of Milan, September 28-30, 2017 

 

Call for workshops

The newly elected administration inaugurated the year 2017 by raising questions in the nation and the world about the oncoming policies of the US government regarding the construction or removal of barriers, the care or exploitation of the environment, and many other dilemmas involving radically alternative scenarios for our future relations to the world and to our habitats. What is at stake is the option of facing contemporary cultural and political challenges on the ground of a shared or an exclusive governance.

The MOSF Journal of Science Fiction is accepting 250 word proposals for 15-20 minute papers for this year’s Escape Velocity Conference in Washington, D.C, September 1st – 3rd.

The topic of this literature panel is “Technology of the Soul and of the self,” and aims to discuss posthumanism, metaphysics, and identity politics.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 31, 2017

Jordan Peele’s horror film, Get Out (2017) just became the highest-grossing debut project for a writer-director with an original screenplay (beating out the prior holder of that record, Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez’s 1999 film The Blair Witch Project).

 

Get Out is not only an enormous box office success but it has won a critical acclaim unusual for a horror film—currently (as of early April, 2017) standing at 99% on Rotten Tomatoes with 225 positive and only one negative review.
