SFRA 09: Engineering the Future and Southern-Fried Science Fiction and Fantasy

 

Sponsored by:

  • The Science Fiction Research Association
  • School of Literature, Communication, and Culture

Hosted by Lisa Yaszek and Doug Davis

The 2009 conference's two themes, "Engineering the Future" and "Southern-Fried Science Fiction and Fantasy," and its selection of guest authors are inspired by the conference's location in Atlanta and its co-sponsorship by Georgia Tech's School of Literature, Communication, and Culture.

Atlanta, a storied locale in American history, is also in many ways an international city of the future, home to 21st century information, entertainment, technological and military industries, peopled with 21st century demographics, and prone to 21st century situations.
