call for guest posts: sociology & science fiction

Following a delightful conversation on Twitter, I’m happy to announce a call for guest posts on the topic of sociology (or social theory) and science fiction! Have you taught a work of science fiction in one of your classes and used it to illustrate some interesting concept or debate in sociology? Let us know how it went! Are you fascinated by the parallels between a work of SF and a work of social theory? Tell us!

To submit, send a short summary of what you’d like to write about to me at this email address with the subject “Sociology & Science Fiction.” Assuming it makes sense to me, you’ll then submit the full post, and I’ll queue them up here.  For some examples of the sorts of things I’ve written like this in the past, check out these old posts – but I’m sure you all can do much better!

  1. the email hyperlink doesn’t work. I’m no sociology professor but I have taken many classes on one of my favorite subjects. I do have an idea that I think a lot of people will enjoy despite it’s dark nature. Let me know how else I can contact you, Thank you Dan.
