This conference aims at putting in dialogue the growing debate on the environmental humanities in Italian Studies with contemporary research on the history of Italian science fiction and its cultural status. We invite contributions about Italian science fiction in literature, cinema, comics, visual arts, theatre, music, and internet culture, in relation to the field of the environmental humanities at large. We especially welcome contributions that cast a light on previously understudied authors, directors, editors, publishers or magazines. 

Please submit a title, a 250-word abstract and a 100-word bio to the organizing committee at by February 28th 2023. Submissions are accepted both in English and Italian.

Acceptance will be notified to the authors by March 15th 2023.
