Synopsis

Extrapolation was founded in 1959 by Thomas D. Clareson and was the first journal to publish academic work on science fiction and fantasy. It continues to be a leading, peer-reviewed, international journal in that specialized genre in the literature of popular culture.

It welcomes papers on all areas of speculative culture, including print, film, television, comic books and video games, and particularly encourages papers which consider popular texts within their larger cultural context.

The journal publishes a wide variety of critical approaches including but not limited to literary criticism, utopian studies, genre criticism, feminist theory, critical race studies, queer theory, and postcolonial theory. Extrapolation promotes innovative work which considers the place of speculative texts in contemporary culture. It is interested in promoting dialogue among scholars working within a number of traditions and in encouraging the serious study of popular culture.

We are particularly interested in the following areas of study:

Racial constructions in speculative genres
Children's and YA sf and fantasy
Sexualities
Fantastic motifs in mainstream texts
Gender and speculative texts
History of sf and fantasy
New weird fiction
Remakes, rewriting and retrofitting
Pulp sf and fantasy
The body in speculative texts
Posthumanism
Political sf and fantasy
Non-Western speculative traditions
Technoculture
