Conference on the Apocalypse

Holy crap. I just received a conference alert for a conference about the Apocalypse. Anything re: the End of the World is welcome, apparently. Here's a (slightly abridged) bit from the actual announcement:

The Second Coming/Millenarianism/Rapture

The Hindu Kali Yuga

Sex and Gender at the End of Time

Death Tourism and Disaster Capitalism

The Age of Terror

Zombies, Vampires, and Werewolves in Post-Apocalyptic Fiction

Disaster Fiction/Movies/Video Games

History as Apocalypse

Dare I write a paper for/submit to this...
