Gravity Assist: Speculative Change in Literature, Film and Art

updated: 
Monday, January 8, 2018 - 9:50am
Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, The University of Split, Croatia
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 1, 2018

Gravity assist is a slingshot move, when one object uses the gravity of another to propel itself out of orbit. This concept from space travel, first used with the Mariner 10 probe in 1974, functions as a metaphor for escaping the constraints of the present to create change for the future. The conference, to be held by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Split, Croatia, 14-15 September, 2018, aims to examine strategies for challenging the limitations of the present in order to escape from them. Much contemporary thought is unfortunately, but understandably, focused on dystopia.

In one continuous song from nature’s first

Remote beginnings to our modern times.
