Religion and Science Fiction Unit and Science, Technology, and Religion Unit and <i>Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science</i>

Call for Papers: 

We solicit papers on the nuts and bolts of transformation that involve imagining technology’s role in society.

Of particular interest will be papers that sit at the intersection between science fiction, religion-and-science, technology, and public policy. Possibilities include superheroes, socially participatory AIs, technological interventions to end scarcity, intergalactic travel, human enhancement, and bioengineering. Panelists will be invited to prepare 9,000 word full papers to be submitted to a thematic section of Zygon (the journal submission deadline will be about a month after the AAR 2019 meeting; we will expect two iterations of papers before the AAR meeting, the second one to be made available to AAR meeting participants).
