Bloomsbury, London, 12-14 September 2019
Guest authors: Aliette de Bodard, Zen Cho, Tade Thompson
Keynote speakers: Dr Caroline Edwards, Dr Joan Haran
The history of science fiction (SF) is a history of unreal economics: from asteroid mining to interstellar trade, from the sex-work of replicants to the domestic labour of the housewives of galactic suburbia, from the abolition of money and property to techno-capitalist tragedies of the near future.
LSFRC invites abstracts of 300 words, plus 50 word bios, addressing economic themes in SF, and/or exploring how SF can help to widen and evolve our sense of the economic. We encourage submissions from collaborators across disciplines and/or institutions. Please submit to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31st May 2019.
