Conversation with
Rivers Solomon | Alison Sperling

In this first event in the new series on speculative feminisms, the sf writer Rivers Solomon will be in conversation with the literary scholar Alison Sperling. Together, Alison and Rivers will explore a wide range of topics across the bodies of Rivers’s work, bringing short theoretical passages and concepts to Rivers’s writing and thought as well as, in equal measure, Rivers’s writing to theory. Their discussion will begin from ecological questions and explorations in Rivers’s novels and fan outward to think about the role of speculative, queer, racial, and fungal ecologies, decolonizing nature, mutualism and care, domesticity and the feral, and weird hybridities and kinships.
