>Interactive Actualization of Utopian Worlds" (4/10/07;

>
>Society for Utopian Studies; 32nd annual meeting; Toronto, CA, October
>4-7, 2007.
>
>Literary utopias are often thought of as the creation (or fantasy) of
>a single mind, but in fact, they are frequently the most dependent of
>all genres on inspiration and derivation. World-building and the
>construction of utopias in literature and other media require
>exceptionally collaborative processes, quickly shared with others by
>the initial creator.  Utopian worlds often exist in an interstitial
>space endorsed by visual artifacts and other collisions of medium.
>Furthermore, with writers, editors, illustrators, marketers, and
>audiences all possessing spheres of influence on a text, such a
>narrative can no longer be said to travel a linear path, but instead
>an interactive and expansive one through new genres, media and
>definitions of ownership.  The experience of literature, heavily
>inflected by the inherent cross-pollination of genre required, becomes
>immensely complex and participatory. Just like fictional utopias
>themselves, the community that creates them, increasingly enabled by
>new technologies and their social conventions, is itself attempting to
>realize a utopian world.
>
>How does this communal ownership influence the study of texts?  Is
>there a privileged hierarchy in this community, in which the initial
>creator has primacy or authority? Can (or should) this privilege be
>eroded? How does the definition of text shift as a result?  In our era
>of interactivity, can a book or an idea or a society, fictional or
>not, ever conclude?  How is the manner in which we build and
>experience fictional worlds changing the non-fictional world?
>
>This panel seeks to address these questions through a range of
>scholarly approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
>the illustration of texts, linguistic translation,  the creation of
>digital lives, fanfiction, the translation of narratives into
>different media, collaborative writing processes as exemplified by
>television/screen writing, fictional universes, interactive utopias,
>the writing of sequels, internet communities, the collision and
>contamination of genres, shared authorship, intellectual property, the
>validity of plagiarism as a concept, and the relationship between
>fiction and realism.
>
>Submit 250 word abstracts to [log in to unmask] by April 10, 2007.
>Digital submissions in the body of an email or in a MS Word attachment
>only, please.
>For more information about the Society for Utopian Studies, including
>programs of past meetings, go to http://www.utoronto.ca/utopia/.
