CFP for a Special Issue of Resilience: A Journal of the Environmental Humanities

“Imagining Alternatives”

 From Afrofuturism to dystopian, apocalyptic fiction to alternate history to ecofeminism and cli-fi, authors of speculative fictions have been interrogating alternative worlds in literature, film, television, comic books, and video games. These visions give us access to alien planets as well as alternative perspectives on our own pasts, presents, and possible futures. They reflect our hopes and fears; they offer new narratives of race, class, gender, sexuality, and nationality; they suggest the magic and the horror embedded in our own realities.

Following the theme of this year’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, this panel seeks to explore what the forthcoming years of scholarship might hold for early modern studies. The two papers in this panel examine topics of renewed interest that promise to have a renaissance of their own in future years. Grace Ioppolo’s forthcoming collected works of Thomas Heywood promises to usher in a renewed interest in the playwright, and the Map of Early Modern London project’s goal to produce the first complete anthology of the mayoral shows will make these texts accessible to scholars and students in an open access digital format.

Through the perspective of newly-graduated New York physician Dr. Joel Fleischman (Rob Morrow), who is sent to the fictional Alaskan town of Cicely to fulfil the terms of his sponsored medical education, Northern Exposure (1990-5) is a ‘fish out of water’ story created by Joshua Brand and John Falsey, the frontrunners of the critically acclaimed series St. Elsewhere (1982-8) and I’ll Fly Away (1991-3). Over the course of the series, the focus however shifts from Fleischman, giving entire arcs to the personal lives and eccentric characters of the small Alaskan town.
