New Orleans Free School Event: Imagine the (im)Possible: Gender in Science Fiction

18 Jan

Friday, January 24: 6pm – 7pm

Sycamore House @ 3111 Palmyra

In this class, we will explore and expand upon concepts of gender and feminism as seen through a literary lens. We will focus on (but are not limited to) science fiction, speculative fiction, magical realism, and fantasy. Some authors include Karen Joy Fowler, Nalo Hopkinson, Ruth Nestvold, Ursula LeGuin, James Tiptree Jr., and Octavia Butler. We will read and discuss one short story per week. All of the readings will be posted on Although the class is informal, it is strongly recommend to do the reading before each class. Contact Ally:

      Yeah it seems like a really cool group. They were listed on New Orleans Free School, but their own website doesn’t look like it’s been updated in a while. If it isn’t happening, there should definitely be a revival.

        I noticed that-May of this past year, which is about the time I moved here. lol

        Seems like it would be such a neat program.
