CFP: [Medieval] MLA 2009: Gibsonâs Neuromancer at Twenty-Five

updated: 
Sunday, February 1, 2009 - 10:16pm
Stacy Gillis

Widely claimed to be the father of cyberpunk, William Gibson won the
Hugo, the Nebula and the Philip K. Dick awards for Neuromancer (1984).
Twenty-five years on, what is the legacy of this novel? How has it shaped
the contemporary field of science fiction? What are its influences on
literature, music, gaming culture, graphic novel and film? I am seeking
presentations examining the impact of Neuromancer as well as new
theoretical, critical and historical approaches to the study of the
novel. Possible topics include the urban, paranoia, drugs, the internet,
mainstreaming cyberpunk, addiction, cyber noir, the figure of the hacker,
and the razorgirl.
