MOSF Journal of Science Fiction @ Escape Velocity 2017


The MOSF Journal of Science Fiction is accepting 250 word proposals for 15-20 minute papers for this year’s Escape Velocity Conference in Washington, D.C, September 1st – 3rd.

The topic of this literature panel is “Gender Portrayals in Science Fiction Literature,” and aims to discuss the ways in which our modern notions on gender shape our speculations on the future. Specifically, we would love papers directly addressing the way that women (particularly, posthuman or transhuman women) are represented in science and speculative fiction literatures, especially in the context of artificial intelligence.

While we are primarily seeking papers discussing works of science and speculative fiction, there are several additional panels we’re holding, some of which address film, science, and graphic art. If you are not selected for the gender in sci-fi panel, you may be considered for other panel topics. 


Conference: September 1-3rd, 2017

Deadline for proposals: February 24th, 2017
