Friday, January 3, 2014 - 11:31am
Michael Cocchiarale (Widener University) and Scott D. Emmert (University of Wisconsin—Fox Valley)

The editors, who produced the scholarly collections Upon Further Review: Sports and American Literature (Praeger, 2004) and Critical Insights: American Sports Fiction (Salem, 2013), have already accepted proposals for nearly all the chapters of The American Short Story volume (Grey House Publishing). As it stands now, the book will contain chapters on writers ranging from Henry James to Jhumpa Lahiri. Some chapters will focus on intriguing subgenres of the short story such as the short story cycle and micro fiction.

The editors still need a 4000-5000 word critical reception chapter that surveys major pieces of criticism on the American short story and the major
concerns of critics over the years.

The Science Fiction 'New Wave' At Fifty

Friday, January 3, 2014 - 8:40am
School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing, University of East Anglia

In May 1964 New Worlds #142 hits the newsstands. It is the first edition edited by Michael Moorcock and ushers in a creative, and much debated, reinterpretation of the aesthetics of Science Fiction. The "New Wave" has begun. This period of aesthetic innovation connected a great many of the pressing concerns of the day, from the apocalyptic threat of the Cold War to the potential of the Space Age, but it also preceded the concerns of subsequent generations including postmodernism, questions of identity and subjectivity, and the nature of history.

Fifty years after that landmark issue the ripples continue to be felt, washing through various modes of fantastic literature from slipstream to the New Weird, from cyberpunk to steampunk.
