Whose Fictions? Upturning the Male Dystopian Narrative

22 May 2014, 16:00 - 18:00

Binaries are at the core of dystopian literature: good/evil, protagonist/antagonist, male/female.

In this discussion, panelists Adrienne Maree Brown – sci-fi writer and Octavia Butler scholar, Paula Pin and Maria Mitsopoulou – members of the feminist art collective Transnoise, and Skawennati – artist and curator exploring Aboriginal virtual environments, will consider how speculative fiction might engage with and apply feminist, queer, and intersectional approaches to question, deconstruct, ostensibly re-imagine the dystopian literary landscape. The panel discussion will be moderated by Erandy Vergara, independent curator and PhD candidate at McGill University, currently researching global art histories.

Panelists: Adrienne Maree Brown [US], Paula Pin [ES], Maria Mitsopoulou [GR/DE], Skawennati [CA]
