Call for Papers: Science Fiction, Fan Fiction and Scribal Culture
Call for Papers Deadline: March 15, 2015
Conference Date: 12-15 July, 2015
Location: Cordoba, Spain
1. Science Fiction and the Bible
The research group "Science Fiction and the Bible" invites papers on contemporary dystopian apocalypses and biblical literatures. Many different approaches are possible to the contemporary phenomenon of dystopias, which often describe apocalyptic scenarios and their aftermath – the Zombie apocalypse, environmental collapse, cultural amnesia due to a data-loss event or misinformation, or the rise of destructive Artificial Intelligences. Papers are invited which engage with the themes of dystopia, destruction, forgetting, downfall – in short, the end of the world as we know it and the worlds that are imagined to appear afterwards. Papers might, for example, bring case studies from contemporary culture (fiction and non-fiction) and ancient cultures into a dialogue.
For our second, open session strongly interdisciplinary and/or explorative proposals are especially encouraged, but any proposal in line with the group’s programme is welcome.
2. Fan Fiction and the Study of Biblical Commentary and Scribal Culture
This workshop welcomes paper proposals which apply fan fiction as an interpretative model to study any text(s) in the range of Hebrew Bible, Septuagint, Dead Sea Scrolls, Pseudepigrapha, New Testament, Christian Apocrypha, or Rabbinic literature. Of particular interest are papers dealing with issues such as a) forms and techniques of literary production based on a revered tradition; b) scribal conventions and restrictions on creative supplementation; c) possible effects of the production of additional material on the development of a “canon”.
