Contributors are invited to submit critical works that consider speculative fiction in its many forms—print, film, television, etc. In keeping with this year’s conference theme, this panel is interested in the role of crisis in these narratives. How is crisis represented in speculative fiction? How does speculative fiction shape our experiences and understanding of crisis? How have depictions of crisis in speculative fiction changed over time? Possible topics (though contributors are not limited to these) may include:
Novels, short stories, poems
Movies and T.V.
Gender and sexuality
Mythology and history
Depictions of conflict
Utopias and dystopias
Fantasy, science-fiction, and horror
Abstracts of 250-300 words should be e-mailed to Jennifer Kavetsky (email@example.com) by March 5th.
