Environmental Science Fiction Before 1962

Friday, September 24, 2010 - 4:37pm
Eric Otto, Science Fiction Research Association

Published in 1962, Rachel Carson's Silent Spring is often identified as the founding text of environmentalism, namely because it generated the popular interest in environmental issues that culminated in the first Earth Day in 1970 and has since branched into a number of political and radical movements. Proposals are invited for presentations that explore science fiction's engagements with environmental issues before the full-scale emergence of environmentalism in the years after 1962. Are there authors of (proto)environmentalist science fiction that were thinking about environmental issues before such thinking was popularly accepted?

UPDATE--Being Erica and Philosophy CFP (Deadline: 10-1-10)

Friday, September 24, 2010 - 1:11pm
Dr. Heath A. Diehl

Since its premiere on January 5, 2009, the Canadian Broadcasting Company's Being Erica has delighted fans in its native Canada and gained a considerable following as a syndicated export in a number of other countries, including Australia, Mexico, the Netherlands, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. At the same time, the program seems to have confounded many media critics. On one hand, precious little "writing" about the program actually exists despite its swift release to DVD (usually a sign of both popularity and potential profitability—both typically strong indicators of media interest as well as scholarly pursuit).

Iranian Voices Across the Globe

Friday, September 24, 2010 - 2:45am
Sanaz Fotouhi, University of New South Wales

This collection of scholarly essays for an edited volume aims to explore the writings of the Iranian diaspora, particularly outside of the North American context. While in recent years, due the rising number of books in English, there have been a few studies focusing on Iranian writing emerging from America in English, far less scholarship has been dedicated to the study of Iranian writing across the globe and in other languages. This collection, therefore, focuses on Iranian fiction or autobiographical writings across the globe and various languages.
