WorldCon 2013 (LoneStarCon 3) - CFP

Monday, 26 November 2012 13:40

LoneStarCon 3 (a.k.a.The 71st World Science Fiction Convention) will be held in San Antonio, Texas from August 29 September 2, 2013.

Guests of Honor: Ellen Datlow, James Gunn, Willie Siros, Norman Spinrad, Darrell K. Sweet, Leslie Fish, and Joe R. Lansdale

The academic track of the 2013 WorldCon is soliciting papers on all topics related to the science fiction and fantasy genres. We especially encourage papers related to the work of the guests of honor (listed above). Work on Steampunk, Old West/frontier themes, and Spanish language sf is also appreciated. Science fiction has long benefitted from works of criticism and scholarship from those outside the academy, a tradition that GoH Dr. James Gunn helped encourage. Paper proposals from both academics and nonacademics (fans) are welcome.

Paper proposals must include a 300-500 word abstract and appropriate bibliography. Proposals are due by December 31 2012, and participants will be notified by February 1, 2013 if their paper is accepted. All participants must be members of the convention. They will deliver a 15 minute reading of their paper as part of a panel, followed by a Q&A. Attendees may present only one paper at WorldCon, so please, no multiple submissions. All submissions (and any questions) should be sent to the head of the academic track, Karen Burnham (academic[at]texas.lonestarcon3[dot]org)
