Illustration for article titled The Museum of Science Fiction Debuts Its Scholarly Journals First Issue

Back in September, the Museum of Science Fiction announced that they were going to be releasing scholarly publication: The Journal of Science Fiction. Now, their first issue is live!


There’s some really interesting articles here: an in depth look at Paolo Bacigalupi’s work, as well as Frank Herbert’s Dune, as well as a couple of other subjects. These are well-researched and in-depth scholarly articles, ones that will help push for a deeper understanding of how science fiction works on a critical and academic level.

Here’s the table of contents:

  • Reflecting on Science Fiction, Monica Louzon
  • Biogenetics, The Nation, and Globalization in Paolo Bacigalupi’s Critical Dystopias, Derrick King
  • Gods of War Toke While Riding a Vimana: Hindu Gods in Three Indian Science Fiction Novels, Sami Ahmad Khan
  • Loving the Other in Science Fiction by Women, Karma Waltonen
  • Paul’s Empire: Imperialism and Assemblage Theory in Frank Herbert’s Dune, Amanda M Rudd

You can download the entire first issue here.
