Description
Summary:The Legacies of Ursula K. Le Guin explores how Le Guins fiction and essays have built a speculative ethical practice engaging indigenous knowledge and feminism, while crafting utopias in which human and other-than-human life forms enter into new relations. Her work also delineates new ways of making sense of the "science" of science fiction. The authors of this collection provide up-to-date discussions of well-known works as well as more experimental writings. Written in an accessible style, Legacies will appeal to any readers interested in literature, science fiction and fantasy, as well as specialists of science and technology studies, philosophy of science, ethics, gender studies, indigenous studies and posthumanism. Christopher L. Robinson is Assistant Professor of English at the Ecole Polytechnique, IP-Paris, France. After completing his dissertation on Ursula K. Le Guin, he went on to publish numerous articles in gender and genre studies. His current research focuses on the intersections of literature, art and the sciences. Sarah Bouttier is Assistant Professor of English at Ecole Polytechnique, IP-Paris, France. She has widely published on the nonhuman/posthuman in literature, ecopoetics, modernist literature and contemporary poetry. Pierre-Louis Patoine is Assistant Professor of American literature at Sorbonne Nouvelle University, France. He is co-director of the Science/Literature research group (litorg.hypotheses.org) and co-editor of the journal epistemocritique.org. He has published a monograph on the role of the empathic, physiological body in the experience of reading (Corps/texte 2015)
