I’ll be participating (virtually) in the 2022 Current Research in Speculative Fiction Conference held June 30 and July 1 at the University of Liverpool.
The annual conference is designed to promote the research of speculative fiction, media and technologies. It aims to shine a spotlight on the research of postgraduates and early career researchers working at the overlap of speculative fiction, theories and cultures.
For CRSF’s 11th year, this hybrid event “seeks to generate interdisciplinary discussions of communication within speculative fiction, breaching boundaries of communication and how forms of communication and kinship manifest themselves within textual and visual cultures in the present-day.”
I’ll appear in a roundtable on Friday, July 1, at 3 p.m. BST, on “Communicating the Other” with hosts Jonathan Thornton and David Tierney, and special guests Chana Porta, Vandana Singh, Aliya Whitle, and Sue Burke.
Other panels and keynotes include “Building the Other,” “Gender,” “Uplift Fiction and Listening to the Other,” and “Degrees of Distance from Consensus Reality.”
Sign up here. Registration closes June 24.
