Extract from I AM SF, lecture performance, 45 minutes, 2017 

This lecture performance reads feminist science fiction through three terms offered by philosopher Luce Irigaray – genre/gender and genealogy.  A discussion of SF histories and fan activity – including the critical reception of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818) and James Tiptree Jr.’s ‘The Girl Who Was Plugged In’ (1973) – is animated by remixed sounds and visuals inspired by online fanvids.

Experimenting at the borders between languages and disciplines, I AM SF addresses issues of identity and definition, the narration of bodies, reading in translation, and the invention of a ‘sexuate style’.
