The Department of English and American Studies at Tel-Aviv University is pleased to announce its 3nd Annual Science Fiction Symposium!

From the earliest days of science fiction, the subject of Time has provided fertile ground for exploration and imagination. Divergent histories, time travel, chronoclasms and the manipulation of past and future events are prevalent tropes of the genre.

We are seeking proposals relating to representations and discussions of Time in Science Fiction, in any medium (television, film, novels, comics/graphic novels, anime, video games, etc.).
