[UPDATE] Science Fiction in Children's Film and Television (Deadline Extended to 7/15/09)

Wednesday, June 10, 2009 - 12:09am
R.C. Neighbors and Sandy Rankin/University of Arkansas

(Proposal deadline has been extended to July 15th.)

It has often been said that science fiction is a literature of ideas. Through the use of familiar tropes, such as spaceships, aliens, and ray guns, the genre uses the future (and sometimes the past) to comment on the present--on current social, cultural, and political ideologies. Likewise, media directed at children often focus on advocating or criticizing similar ideologies, sometimes for a didactic purpose. It is interesting, then, that so little has been said about the joining of these two genres--children's science fiction--particularly when dealing with the visual media of film and television.
