Special journal issue - Moon Rise

updated: 
Tuesday, June 26, 2018 - 10:56am
Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 28, 2019

To mark the 50th anniversary of the first successful manned Moon landing, we invite articles for a special issue, examining how the Moon has been depicted since 1969 in science fiction. As Marjorie Hope Nicolson showed in her classic study of Voyages to the Moon (1948), fantasies of moon flight have been an integral part of world literature since classical times. Since moon flight became a reality, how have these stories changed? From adventure series such as Space 1999 to films such as Duncan Jones’ Moon and novels such as Ian McDonald’s Luna sequence, Earth’s satellite has remained a source of fascination.

The Age of Sharing? Practices of Sharing in Contemporary Media, Literature and Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, June 26, 2018 - 11:22am
University of Koblenz-Landau
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, July 15, 2018

The concept of sharing has become pervasive in the 21st century. We are encouraged to 'share' our digital data (e.g. facebook) and to participate in the 'sharing industry' (e.g. Airbnb). Moreover, popular self-help literature emphasizes that we should develop healthy intimate relationships through sharing or disclosing our innermost thoughts and feelings. While these are quite diverse practices, the concept of 'sharing' emphasizes a link, endowing them with a positive value. This extraordinary career of the concept 'sharing' has led sociologists such as Nicholas John to dub our contemporary time as an '‘age of sharing'. The practices subsumed under 'sharing', however, have also given rise to controversy.
