call for SF paper presenters

The good folks at the Association of Literary Scholars & Critics have requested that I forward this information to interested parties. So here is a request for papers on an interesting seminar (click the title for the full conference info):

Seminar One: Pleasures of the Imagination in Science Fiction

This seminar will focus on the imaginative pleasures of science fiction rather than on its didactic concerns or its uses as grist for the cultural-studies mills. What in fact are the imaginative pleasures of science fiction (if any)? How are they manifested and to what ends? Please send abstracts of papers that address these and related questions by concentrating on a single noteworthy work of science fiction to Paul K. Alkon, Department of English, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90089-0354. (alkon@usc.edu)
