Technology of the Soul
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 “Technology of the Soul,” and aims to discuss posthumanism and metaphysics. More specifically, we would love papers discussing the boundaries of what we might consider the human “soul” and where we locate the parameters of personhood in a technologically enhanced world.
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
