How do we use popular culture to understand science and technology? And how do we use science and technology to understand narratives, art, and culture?

Science Fiction of the 1870s

updated: 
Wednesday, March 6, 2024 - 2:05pm
Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 7, 2024

To mark the 150th issue of Foundation in spring 2025, we would like to include contributions on the topic of sf from 150 years ago, published during the 1870s. Darko Suvin once proposed 1 May 1871 as the starting-point for sf – the day that Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s The Coming Race was published, George Chesney’s The Battle of Dorking began serialisation, and Samuel Butler submitted Erewhon to his publisher. Jules Verne, however, was already in full swing and he would soon be joined by such contemporaries as Camille Flammarion. Where else can we trace the roots of science fiction in the 1870s? How can we reassess the writers we know and who are the writers we need to rediscover?

Call for Book Chapters for the Edited Volume: Interdisciplinary Studies on German Philology Cyberpunk and Digital Rebellion of AI

updated: 
Monday, February 26, 2024 - 3:59pm
Prof. Dr. Habib Tekin / Marmara University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2024

As a literary genre and a form of cultural aesthetic cyberpunk narratives depict dark visions of the future in which technology, society, and human existence merge. A major element of this setting is Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is often portrayed as a powerful, autonomous entity in cyberpunk universes. In cyberpunk genres, AI typically symbolizes both the zenith of human advancement and a looming existential danger for human beings. The dynamic between humans and AI in these narratives not only raises ethical dilemmas but also highlights the potential conflicts and challenges associated with the development of advanced AI technologies.
