Call for Papers: 

Science, Technology, and Literature During Plagues and Pandemics

 

In The Parasite, Michel Serres argues that “the parasite intervenes, enters the system as an element of fluctuation. It excites it or incites it; it puts into motion, or it paralyzes.” Throughout the world, COVID-19 continues to interrupt and alter daily life while it simultaneously compels governments to rely on technology and science to combat its spread. Configurations is seeking articles that examine intersections of science, technology, and literature with myriad contemporary and historical contexts relevant to COVID-19.

CFP – Beyond Borders: Empires, Bodies, Science Fictions

11th-12th September 2020

Keynote Speakers: Dr Nadine El-Enany and Florence Okoye

 

A border, like race, is a cruel fiction
Maintained by constant policing, violence
Always threatening a new map.

from Wendy Trevino, 'Brazilian is Not a Race'

 

As a result of the ongoing crisis this conference will have to take place online, with the possibility of some optional in-person elements. We think now more than ever is a time to question the role of borders in our lives and so we want to proceed with this conversation. If you have any questions or concerns about this please feel free to get in touch.
