New journal devoted to sci-fi

Science Fiction Film and Television is a new scholarly journal that should appeal to readers of Cinefantastique Online. The biannual publication from Liverpool University Press “encourages dialogue among the scholarly and intellectual communities of film studies, sf studies, and television studies” and publishes “work that situates texts, practices and institutions within broader national, historical, cultural, theoretical and critical contexts.”
Edited by Mark Bould and SHerryl Vint, Science Fiction Film and Television recently published its first issue which contains such articles as:

  • Love machines: boy toys toy boys and the oxymorons of A.I.: Artificial Intelligence
  • The dispersible television text: theorising moments of the new Doctor Who
  • Archive: The lab and the woods: science and myth in Les Yeux sans visage
  • A new wilderness’: memory and language in the television science fiction of Nigel Kneale
  • Serenity, cinematisation and the perils of adaptation

The issue is also loaded with book and DVD reviews, and the publication is open to submissions. You can get information on purchasing a copy or subscribing by visiting their website.
