Speculative Fiction as Literature of Emergence

updated: 
Monday, December 11, 2017 - 1:31pm
Gabriella Friedman/American Studies Association 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 2, 2017

Speculative fiction is often loosely defined as an umbrella category that includes genres such as science fiction, fantasy, supernatural horror, and magical realism—that is, as fiction that deploys non-mimetic or “fantastic” elements. This panel, however, will take up conceptions of speculative fiction that go beyond this generic distinction. That is, instead of defining speculative fiction primarily by the presence of non-mimetic elements, the panel will explore speculative fiction as any fiction that generates emergences—ontological, epistemological, and/or political—which are seemingly unimaginable in our existing society.
