with one comment

World Science Fiction Studies
Edited By Sonja Fritzsche and Gerry Canavan
https://www.peterlang.com/view/serial/WSFS

World Science Fiction Studies understands science fiction to be an inherently global phenomenon. Proposals are invited for monographs and edited collections that celebrate the tremendous reach of a genre that continues to be interpreted and transformed by a variety of cultures and linguistic communities around the world. The series embraces this global vision of the genre but also supports the articulation of each community’s unique approach to the challenges of science, technology and society. The series encourages the use of contemporary theoretical approaches (e.g. postcolonialism, posthumanism, feminisms, ecocriticism) as well as engagement with positionalities understood through critical race and ethnicity studies, gender studies, queer theory, disability studies, class analysis, and beyond. Interdisciplinary work and research on any media (e.g. print, film, television, visual arts, video games, new media) is welcome. The language of the series is English.

  1. I wanted to leave a comment here just to note that some people may know that Peter Lang has sometimes asked for subvention from scholars in the past, as this practice is much more common in Europe than in the United States; this is not a barrier to publication with this series and please do not let it keep you from inquiring or submitting!
