Man as Catalyst: Posthumanism and Beyond

Concept Note

“If my nightmare is a culture inhabited by posthumans who regard their bodies as fashion accessories rather than the ground of being, my dream is a version of the posthuman that embraces the possibilities of information technologies without being seduced by fantasies of unlimited power and disembodied immortality, that recognizes and celebrates finitude as a condition of human being, and that understands human life is embedded in a material world of great complexity, one on which we depend for our continued survival”.

CFP: Approaching Race and Ethnicity in Nordic Film Culture

In 2017, the head of the Swedish Film Institute (SFI), Anna Serner, highlighted the distinct lack of ethnic diversity in Swedish film culture and signalled ambitions to ‘broaden representation, both behind and in front of the cameras’ (2017: 4). Echoing these sentiments, the Danish Film Institute (DFI) and the Norwegian Ministry of Culture (NFI) have outlined targets for ‘increasing cultural diversity and reaching new audiences’ (NFI 2018). These statements reflect the Nordic film industries’ aspiration to address the significant underrepresentation of black, Asian and minority ethnic voices in the creative sectors across the Nordic region.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 10, 2020

This panel aims to examine fictional texts which represent an alternate past or future in order to resist dominant narratives. Papers which address the following questions (and others) are welcome:

How does speculative fiction which presents an alternate past or future allow us to critique the present?

How does imagining "what if" prompt us to question "what next?"

How do we use possible worlds theory to understand what is possible in the world, or unnatural narratology to interrogate what is "natural"?

How do Afro-, Indigenous, and/or Latinx futurisms, in particular, work as part of larger movements of social action?

that explore interactions with and responses to an increasingly globalized world. 

The conference organizers welcome and encourage complete panel submissions as
