Announcement ID: 194038

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

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

Articles should be approximately 9000 words, including footnotes and bibliography. Submissions (in word or rtf, following MLA style) should be made via our website at

Any queries should be directed to the editors, Mark Bould ( and Sherryl Vint (

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