Week One Approaches


Hi, everyone. Just a reminder that there is work assigned for the first week of classes:

Chapters 1-2 of Hewitt’s No Permanent Waves and Chapters 1-2 of Merrick’s The Secret Feminist Cabal.

These are important background readings, meant to establish some common framework from which to begin our work.

Also, please note that we’ll be meeting at the Paulson Reading room and not Lillis for our second class on 3 October (it’s in the north wing of the Knight Library — go up the first set of stairs and follow the signs).

    I am a teacher (in a secondary school) mum in London, who, once upon a time, was a TA for Grace Dillon, who just posted a link to this site in her FB. I’d love a copy of your syllabus please! What feminist sci-fi, I’ve read, I’ve truly found inspiring. I would love to learn more.

    Thanks much and I wish you every success with your course.

    Be well,

    Hello, Britt, and welcome. You can find the syllabus here: https://femscifi.wordpress.com/resources/syllabus/. We’ve had to password-protect the readings because of copyright issues, but all of the short stories are readily available in anthologies, etc. If you want to know where to find any of them, let me know. Look forward to further comments!
