A rich and relatively under-explored area in modern receptions of classical traditions is science fiction. How does science fiction imagine ancient thinking as contributing to or challenging modern discourses with special regard to those discourses' scientific aspects or interests? How does it constitute the classics in light of master narratives of modern scientific knowledge and practice? By raising these and other questions, this volume will ask how ancient Greco-Roman classics continue to speak – or are received as speaking – to a modern world separated from antiquity by such profound processes as the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution.

Happy New Year! It's 2011. Next year it will be 2012, and while we here at Miranda firmly believe that the Mayans stopped their calendar on December 21, 2012 because they just kind of got lazy, we have decided to quell any lingering doubts by reminding ourselves of the last apocalypse that never was, Y2K. That is why we are proud to announce Miranda Literary Magazine Presents: Y2K. Give us your best fiction, creative non-fiction, or poetry about the cataclysm or lack thereof due to the Y2K computer glitch.
Confirmed keynote speakers:
Professor Elaine Aston (Lancaster University)
Professor Mary Luckhurst (University of York)
