CFP: Ethics in Science Fiction

Submission deadline: December 1, 2017

Topic areas


Essays are sought for a collection of new articles that engage science fiction in terms of its ethical content, with a focus on analytic or Anglo-American tradition of ethical theorizing. The guiding idea behind the volume is to expand the boundaries of ethical criticism of literature by either treating science fiction texts as engaging in arguments about ethical problems found in the philosophical literature or using concepts from ethical theorizing to develop new interpretive lenses for science fiction.
