Description:

Sublime Cognition: Science Fiction and Metaphysics

updated: 
Tuesday, March 6, 2018 - 6:00am
London Science Fiction Research Community
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Deploying the broad catch-all of ‘metaphysics’, this conference will explore SF’s lost history of engagement with myth, magic, religion and the supernatural. Central areas of focus will include an assessment of what role (if any) metaphysical phenomena have played in science fiction, and to what degree SF can be distanced from the spiritual, supernatural and numinous concerns of other literatures of the fantastic. Assessing SF’s complex relationship with the metaphysical opens into many productive areas of inquiry: How can science fictional texts help us understand broader cultural processes of knowledge formation and paradigm shift?

deadline for submissions:

Call for Papers, Women's Studies Special Issue: "Futures of Feminist Science Studies"

 

This special issue of Women's Studies: an interdisciplinary journal invites submissions that work at the intersections of science studies, feminism, and cultural studies. We are especially interested in work that explores the possibilities that emerge from feminist science studies, both as a critique science’s “culture of no culture” and as a pedagogical intervention relevant to the training of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies students. Submissions for this issue should fall into one of two broad categories: "Gender, Science, and the Practice of Culture" and "Feminist Science Studies in the University Classroom."

 

Call for Papers for ELOPE 15 (1), 2018

updated: 
Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - 9:11am
Andrej Stopar / University of Ljubljana
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 1, 2018

The spring 2018 issue of ELOPE is dedicated to the position and role of speculative fiction and especially science fiction in a world that is increasingly becoming speculative and science fictional. The globalized, digitally mediated nature of contemporary realities and, indeed, individuals, increasingly corresponds to those imagined by the literary cyberpunk of the 1980s – by the movement which with its formal and thematic properties arguably blurred the dividing line between the “mainstream” literary fiction and the science fiction genre.
