This panel aims to address the issues of gender, body and technology in science fiction cinema. Applicants can study both American sci-fi cinema as well as from around the world. Recent films like Splice (Vincenzo Natali, 2010) and Children of Men (Alfonso Cuaron, 2006) as well as some classics like Alien (Ridley Scott, 1979) and Blade Runner (Ridley Scott, 1982) deal with issues and questions about how women's body, reproductivity, motherhood, sex roles, and technological transformation of the female cyborg are once again in focus in contemporary sci-fi cinema. Abstracts should be approximately 300 words in length, and accompanied by a brief bibliography (five items maximum) and a short biography of the author. Please email your abstract as a .doc or .pdf file to Murat Akser (makser@khas.edu.tr) by August 5. All will be notified as to the status of their proposal by August 15, 2011.
