CFP: From Dragonflight to Lost: Women and Science Fiction & Fantasy (8/18/06; journal issue)
Women’s Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal welcomes the submission of essays for an upcoming special issue focused on the topic of Women and Science Fiction & Fantasy. We encourage men and women from all disciplines to submit articles based in film, television, literature, art, or other media.
From pioneering female SF/Fantasy authors such as Anne McCaffrey and Ursula K. Le Guin to female characters on hit television shows such as Lost and Battlestar Galactica, women and women’s roles are intricately tied to Science Fiction and Fantasy.
This issue will explore some of the intersections between Women and Science Fiction and Fantasy. Topics could include but are not limited to:
Female characters on The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Lost
Analyses of work by female SF/fantasy authors
Explorations of feminism and women’s rights in SF/Fantasy
Women's Studies publishes 8 issues a year, providing a forum for the presentation of scholarship and criticism about women in the fields of literature, history, art, sociology, law, political science, economics, anthropology and the sciences. It also publishes poetry, film and book reviews.
