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. 

  Submission process
  ●      Abstracts of max. 500 words in length (excl. references)
      should be submitted no later than 10 January 2022 to 
  ●      Invitations for the submission of selected full
      manuscripts are sent out in February 2022.
  ●      Full manuscripts between 6,000 and 8,000 words (excluding references) to be
      submitted by June 2022.
  ●      Comprehensive review returned to authors in September 2022; final papers due in
        December 2022.
