CFP for Scholarly Articles - Mediation and Conjunction: The Restless Middle [April 1, 2014]

Friday, January 31, 2014 - 12:42pm
Humanities Review-St John's University

The Humanities Review seeks to analyze the ways in which disparate dialectical poles (such as Nature and Culture) are mediated, and in which disparate fields of knowledge conjoin.

To this end, we are seeking scholarly articles that examine the way supposed distinctions are constructed and maintained between authentically linked, contiguous, or identical concepts; the consequences of such distinctions; and the implications of their removal.

In a similar and related vein, we are interested in cross-pollination between academic fields which are capable of illuminating both the strengths and oversights of one or both disciplines and shedding new light on new or stagnating issues.

Contemporary Fiction and the Wild, Wild Future (MLA 2015)

Friday, January 31, 2014 - 12:29pm
Aaron DeRosa

Since the Cold War, the West has undergone significant changes in its perception of the future, from Fukuyama's "End of History" to DeLillo's "In the Ruins of the Future." For instance, after 9/11, the eminent SF writer William Gibson published his first book NOT set in the future. When asked about the choice, he remarked, "I may not be done with the future but I have to figure out what it means to try to write about the future at a time when we are all living in the shadow of at least half a dozen wildly science fiction scenarios."
