Speculative fiction covers a broad range of narrative styles and genres. The cohesive element that pulls works together under this category is that there is some “unrealistic” element. Whether it’s magical, supernatural, or even a futuristic technological development, works that fall in this category stray from conventional realism in some way. For this reason, speculative fiction can be quite broad, including everything from fantasy and magical realism to horror and science fiction—from Gabriel Garcia Marquez to H. P.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Space and place in Neo-Victorian Literature and Culture
Keynote Speaker: Dr Marie-Luise Kohlke (Swansea University)
Friday June 23, 2017, Lancaster University

The crisis and collapse of Marxism as the dominant paradigm of left intellectual thought undoubtedly remains one of the most seismic shifts in the ideological history of the late twentieth century. With the collapse of actually existing socialism in the Soviet Union, the pressure of postmodern concepts, and the rise of new social protest movements in the spheres of race, gender, and sexual orientation, Marxism came to appear the ‘signifier par excellence of theoretical hubris, redundancy and error’ (Pendakis and Szeman, 2014). In the twenty-first century however, precipitated by the succession of economic and ecological crisis scenarios, Marxist criticism has experienced a critical resurgence.
