updated: 
Friday, December 18, 2020 - 12:04pm

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 29, 2021

The theme of decay and regeneration captures our current global moment of political uncertainty, environmental catastrophe, public health crises, and mass protest. In the past few years, we have witnessed a once-in-a-century pandemic; global protests in response to police brutality; a record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season; the largest wildfires in recorded Amazonian, American, and Australian history; the continued resurgence of fascist political ideologies; and the potential collapse of liberal democracy as we know it.

How to Do Things with Worlds

18th Annual Interdisciplinary Conference

Department of English, Indiana University, Bloomington

Dates: TBA [but virtual]

Keynote: TBA


 

 

“A ‘world’ need not be a construction of a whole society. It may be a construction of a tiny portion of a particular society. It may be inhabited by just a few people. Some ‘worlds’ are bigger than others.”

  • Maria Lugones, “Playfulness, ‘World’-Travelling, and Loving Perception” (1987)

Food Futures: A Special Issue of SFS

updated: 
Wednesday, December 9, 2020 - 2:36pm
Graeme Macdonald & Nora Castle, University of Warwick
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

This special issue of Science Fiction Studies examines food’s multiple registrations across the spectrum of historical and contemporary SF. As a core element of both the problems with and solutions to the climate crisis, the global food system is the nexus of an array of future-oriented concerns emerging around issues such as security, diet, foodways, technologies, population, habitats, consumer cultures, production techniques, energy regimes and much more. As a result of this focus the very concept of eating and food as baseline cultural material has arguably been placed under the sign of the future to a greater extent than hitherto experienced.

Avian Aesthetics: Birds and Humans in the Literary and Popular Imagination

updated: 
Wednesday, December 9, 2020 - 11:49am
Danette DiMarco and Tim Ruppert / Slippery Rock University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

Jennifer Ackerman’s national bestseller The Genius of Birds (2016) highlights how birds and humans, while on seemingly different evolutionary paths, have coincided in interesting ways as both have risen to meet the challenges of nature (The Genius of Birds 12). Birds have consistently been alluded to in literature, dating back to the Greeks, and the proposed edited collection Avian Aesthetics seeks to deepen the awareness of the importance of birds in the literary and popular imagination while simultaneously focusing on how the human vision of birds has altered in an age of Animal Studies, species-ism, and climate change.
