Detail from Christine de Pizan, The Book of the Queen (Harley MS 4431), f. 290r.  By permission of the British Library.

“More Generous and More Suspicious” examines feminist science fiction as a worldbuilding practice.  This short essay considers the relation of response-ability that Donna Haraway describes between the writer and reader of SF texts; drawing connections between the speculative spiritual manuscripts authored by Christine de Pizan in the early-1400s and the more recent queer feminist writing of Joanna Russ and Sara Ahmed.

“More Generous and More Suspicious” was published by MAP Magazine as part of We Who Are About To..., project curated by Deborah Jackson for Glasgow International 2018.
