In April I was so excited to finally meet Samuel R. Delany at the celebration of his birthday at UMD. He was a generous presence during the event, reading from his new book Through the Valley of the Nest of Spiders, offering companionships unexpected and thoroughly alive! My paper is online here: SF Ecologies: speculative, feminist, science as knowledges.
November in Cleveland I attended 4S: the Society for the Social Studies of Science, my first time to this particular yearly conference, where STS, ANT, and cultural studies of science and technology are native tongues! Wonderful series of panels, some of my favorites shared science fiction inspirations for social action. My paper is online here: Transdisciplinarities: queering the pitch.
