Science Fiction Panel at ALA San Francisco

The panel I’ve helped put together for the American Literature Association’s conference will be at 8:10 a.m. on Friday, May 26, 2016 in San Francisco.  ALA has posted a draft of the full program if you’d like to see who is appearing.

Our panel is called “American Science Fiction: Utopian Technologies and Feminist Spaces.”  Joining me are Bridgette Barclay from Aurora University  discussing the comic book Bitch Planet, and Michelle Yates from Columbia College Chicago talking about Mad Max: Fury Road.  I’m going to cover two polar utopian novels: The Great White Way by Mark Twain’s biographer Albert Bigelow Paine and Arqtiq by Anna Adolph, a work that features (I think) the first female inventor hero, one who builds her own airship and brings her family along for the ride.
