FMS II: Varieties of Science Narrative

Volkswagen Foundation funds new projects for Fiction Meets Science! DOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS AVAILABLE!

The new projects will focus on narratives that explore and reflect the global dimensions and diverse regional contexts of science. Here we also expand our purview beyond literary fiction to take a comparative look at science narratives in a variety of media and forms of fiction and non-fiction, such as feature film and TV series, theater, documentary and print journalism.

Ph.D. Fellowship Available at University of Bremen

Science in Post-colonial Speculative Fiction: Nature/Politics/Economies Reimagined

This project examines the contemporary rise of utopian/dystopian postcolonial speculative fiction—predominantly novels—and asks how a focus on the Global South influences imaginings of future societies and the role of science at the nexus of nature, politics, and economics.
