World SF Cinema and Television - CFP

Wednesday, 18 April 2012 12:25

Another tempting CFP. Going to ICFA last month reminded me how much I enjoy critically viewing SF-film, particularly non-Anglophone/American SF film. I took a lot of (non-Anglophone) film courses during undergrad and seriously considered pursuing media/film studies in graduate school (instead of English Literature). The deadline isn't until the fall, so I have time to put together something worthwhile. CFP follows:


Science Fiction Film and Television ( is seeking articles for a special issue in on world sf cinema and television.

Although excluding the US from discussions of world cinema and television creates a problematic opposition(ality), we are seeking critical work on sf from other national/transnational, and especially non-Anglophone, contexts, both historical and contemporary.

We are particularly, but not exclusively, interested in work which introduces and/or offers fresh insights into specific national cinemas/televisions, or which reconceptualises sf by relativising US/First Cinema variants as culturally-specific approaches rather than generic norms, or which addresses the following:

·           globalisation

·           transnationalism

·           imperialism, neo-imperialism, post-imperialism

·           colonialism, decolonisation, neo-colonialism, post-colonialism

·           sf from the Third World/Developing World/Global South

·           indigenous, Fourth World and Fourth Cinema sf

·           the subaltern

·           nationhood, national identity, regional identity

·           race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality

·           global networks, informational black holes

·           borders, borderlands

·           homelands, migrations, diasporas

·           national, international or transnational contexts of production, distribution or consumption

·           specific production cycles

Submissions should be made via our website at


Any queries should be directed to the editors, Mark Bould (mark.bould[at] and Sherryl Vint (sherryl.vint[at]


The deadline for submission to this special issue is September 1 2013.
