CfP „The realities of autonomous weapons" planned with Bristol University Press Deadline 10.Jan 2022

                Dear Collegues,
      Here some corner information. Please find attached the full CfP
        for the topic:
        The realities of autonomous weapons 
          Call for contributions
      Edited volume (under discussion with Bristol University Press)
      Submission deadline:  10 January 2022
      Papers on the following larger themes are
      ●      Fictions and
            imaginaries around AWS, including
          both cultural texts that are marked as fiction (e.g.
          science-fiction films and
          novels etc.) and those marked as non-fiction in journalism,
          politics or
      ●     A reflection
            of technologies and materialities, including
          specific human/machine entanglements
          of decision-making, technological agency or autonomy and
          ‘meaningful human
          control’. This reflection extends to larger philosophical
          motifs such as legal
          or moral responsibility, free will or consciousness. 
      ●    the specific understandings and interpretations of AWS that are
            applied in political
            and ethical contexts, with a particular focus on the
          ways these meanings
          are translated into a political course of action, thus
          creating a reality in
          their own right. 
      We welcome contributions
          from scholars of diverse disciplines, such
          as (but not limited to) media
          studies, cultural studies, literature and
          film studies, media and communication studies, political
          science, security
          studies, science and technology studies or sociology.
